AFE Silicon Valley Chapter presents
Don't Just Tell Me...SHOW ME!
July 27, 2011 San Jose, California
(13 min)



This presentation demonstrates how videos can be used to enhance instructional programs for Facilities Engineers and their vendors. Operation and maintenance personnel are typically kinesthetic learners. They tend to learn best by doing and observing, rather than following complex written procedures. Videos are ideal for kinesthetic learners.

Words are first converted into images for understanding. Video training provides a direct approach by supplying the intended imagery, thus reducing the chance for misinterpretation. The effective use of videos can help companies save money, make money, and make life easier.

Topics include the use of videos to:

  • Demonstrate the benefits of your company’s products, capabilities, and services;
  • Show how to operate and maintain complex equipment;
  • Train personnel on how to deal with site-specific critical equipment during emergencies; and the importance of
  • Documenting special projects for training, archiving, and marketing purposes.

This video is based excerpts from a presentation made to the Silicon Valley Chapter of the Association of Facilities Engineering (AFE) on July 27, 2011.
