Training magazine Announces 2015 Ttv Winners
Denver, CO (October 14, 2015)—A self-deprecating cloud demonstrating his prowess with lightning and a virus-infected messenger transporting files to a desktop computer struck a chord with Online Learning Conference participants who voted the video clips No. 1 in their respective categories in Training magazine’s Top Training Videos (Ttv) awards program during a special event held October 7 at Howl at the Moon in Denver.
“Lightning Safety: Interview with a Cloud,” produced by LDS Church, took No. 1 in the videos produced in-house category. “EY's Metro Email Service,” produced by Cohn Creative Group for EY, earned the No. 1 spot in the videos produced by a professional video company for a client category.
This is Training’s second year doing this awards program. Companies were asked to send in a two-minute training video clip. Entries were in one of two categories: produced in-house or produced by a professional video company for a client. Each company could submit two videos. Training received nearly 140 video clip submissions. Nine 2014 Emerging Training Leaders, along with one additional industry expert, judged the submissions:
- Greg Cole, BKD
- Theda Riggins-Crawford, Fiserv
- Kristin Hall, PPD
- Jennifer Hentz, Booz Allen Hamilton
- Rebecca Lockard, Advance Financial
- Christine Marciano, Nationwide
- Eileen Miller, Vanguard
- Ming Ng, Paychex
- Subadhra Parthasarathy, Cognizant
- James Goldsmith, Accenture
The three videos that earned the top scores in each category—in-house and vendor-produced—were shown to Online Learning Conference participants at the Howl at the Moon event, which also featured dueling pianos. Participants voted for their favorite clips (based on factors such as engagement, creativity, and effectiveness) using Turning Technologies’ audience response system. Each of the three winners in both categories received crystal awards created by Pelucida for Training.
The Top 3 winners by category are:
Videos Produced In-House:
#1: LIGHTNING SAFETY: INTERVIEW WITH A CLOUD
Judge comments: Great concept and content. Nice use of video, graphics, sound effects, and music. And the actor playing the cloud is very good.
#2: NEW BEGINNINGS
Judge comments: Emotionally powerful video. Very good motivation video and serves its purpose for the organization’s goals.
Blood Systems, Inc.
Judge comments: Great information conveyed in a great manner. Good use of graphics; short, effective message; clever application of the musical canon (in the story and as background music).
Videos Produced by a Professional Video Company for a Client:
#1: EY's METRO EMAIL SERVICE
Cohn Creative Group for EY
Judge comments: Personified e-mail application is very clever. VERY creative—really interesting use of the low-tech ways we deal with high-tech e-mail problems.
Resonate Pictures, INC
Judge comments: I want to know what happens! That’s how much I like this video. It makes a personal connection to how many people are involved in safety and even without understanding the “how to’s.” This one’s a keeper.
Spoiler alert: This clip is part of a longer video and does have a happy ending; everyone is OK at the end, and the doghouse does get built.

#3: THE IMPORTANCE OF DOCUMENTING EXPERIMENTS
Performance Development Group and MedImmune
Judge comments: A great way to present compliance information by leveraging storytelling. I like the fact that there are facts, figures, and a story in this video. It creates a good case for employees to do documentation.
