English as a Second Language

English has become the universal language in many industries. While a common language can foster business communication, in elearning products differences in accents, inflection, and speech patterns can make a voice unintelligible to learners–just when meaning is most important. Joel Richards has narrated hundreds of modules produced for an audience who learned English as a second language. He is familiar with the pace and precise articulation needed. Contact him now to find out how to do this for your elearning product.

English Language Replacement for Existing Video Segments

Video continues to play an important role in learning. Perhaps your client needs an instructional video produced in several languages. Instead of an expensive re-edit, let Joel Richards replace the existing narration with his English one. Tell him your video running time and deadline for a quick, free quote.

 

Storytelling as a Learning Tool

Storytelling is an effective and powerful teaching tool. Participants retain information three times better after learning it through a story than through a PowerPoint presentation. In areas involving human resources, diversity training, safety, and culture, storytelling can be crucial. Not only is Joel Richards an effective elearning narrator he is also a skilled storyteller and holds a masters degree in storytelling from East Tennessee State University–the only such program in the United States. As a storytelling consultant he can help you add this critical, and often missing, component of effective teaching to your projects. By adding story you can create a more memorable and effective product for you clients which directly effects your bottom-line. Discuss your needs with Joel Richards today.
