My department was looking to create high quality video content quickly to boost our internal employee training program and to amp up the online help we offer our users. We were honing in on Brainshark in April 2011 when the question of professional services came up. How would we make sure our Brainshark implementation got off to a strong start in order to meet our goals? I didn’t really think about the question at the time. I just wanted to make videos, baby!
