What is a Video Coaching Platform?

First things first. What exactly is a video coaching platform?

A video coaching platform is an online learning tool that uses video technology to facilitate coaching sessions between learners and coaches or trainers, providing a platform for personalized and interactive learning experiences.

It often includes features such as video recording, feedback and analytics tools, and collaboration options, enabling learners to access coaching and training anytime and from anywhere, while receiving personalized feedback and support from their coaches or peers.

Why does a Video Coaching Platform Work so Well?

A lot of companies have already transitioned to video training solutions, providing their L&D departments with new capabilities and new opportunities to scale their learning, as well as providing 24/7 education access to their employees so that they can continuously upskill.

 Traditional, lecture-style training methods  Video coaching platforms
  • Lacks interaction and fails to engage employees in a meaningful way.
  • Engages learners by providing a dynamic and interactive learning experience that fosters a sense of connection with the material.
  • No individualized attention, meaning no personalized feedback and no chances to identify specific areas of improvement for growth.
  • Provides real-time, personalized feedback.
  • Unscalable and unsustainable.
  • Globally scalable - trainees can access training wherever, whenever.
  • Skills are trained in an isolated context, which makes it difficult for learners to retain information.
  • Interactive content that engages trainees, helping them retain information.


To stay competitive in the digital age, it is crucial for leaders of L&D functions to transform their approach by developing a learning strategy that is in line with the business strategy and enabling the necessary capabilities for success. By doing so, they can create comprehensive curricula that utilize various learning methods and technologies. In addition, companies that invest in innovative L&D programs, remain agile, and develop their human talent are likely to be the most effective.
