The use of video has become an important component of effective education strategies. In a digital world, watching a video accounts for one-third of all online activities. For diabetes educators tasked with guiding patients, families, and other healthcare professionals in the appropriate diabetes care, whiteboard animation videos provide a simple method to address the knowledge gap and garner greater adherence with optimal care practices. Whiteboard animated videos appeal to all education levels, meet multiple different learning styles, and provide quick, straight-to-the-point examples that are very effective in explaining what can otherwise be complex concepts. This poster explains the benefits of these videos and discusses how to create your own whiteboard animated videos.
