Corporate Training Video Production - e-Learning Design - Interactive Multimedia - IT Software Training
Enlightenment Interactive was the UK partner in e-Skill, a multinational project under the EU Leonardo programme. One of its aims was to develop online training materials for the construction industry, specifically on green construction techniques for the masonry, electrical, gas and water trades.
We produced 28 short training videos and a number of interactive exercises for this project, which closed in 2013. The videos are still available free on YouTube. Links to the more popular videos appear below.
The videos were shot in the UK, Italy and Spain and are available with subtitles. Use the buttons on the toolbar to display the subtitles in the relevant language (English, Italian, Spanish, Polish, Lithuanian).
Avoiding Thermal Bridges (1) - Case history of techniques used in an apartment development in Ostia to optimise solar gain and minimise thermal transmission through exterior walls according to the season
Avoiding Thermal Bridges (2) - Use of Porotherm bricks, rigid expanded polystyrene sheet and sprayed polyurethane foam to prevent thermal bridges and heat transmission in an apartment development in Rome.
