Training & education video modules are not specific to schools & universities and can effectively be adopted by corporate organisations. Videos can be integrated into an eLearning programs or used to explain more isolated subject matter where a specific lack of awareness has been identified, and required to be addressed.
In the education sector, The University of Queensland has reported four key points that explain the benefits of effective video.

- Assisting with mastery learning. The ability to watch a video repetitively provides the opportunity to grasp concepts that may be difficult and allows students to learn at varied paces.
- Inspiring and engaging students. Breaking from the traditional classroom setting, videos that centered are student learning activities enhance the educational experience.
- Authentic learning opportunities. Through exposing students to the opportunities of creating their own content, they in turn create authenticity in material they relate to and can transfer to other students.
