We spoke with Freddy Pinto, Senior Learning Experience Designer, and Katrianna Quatraro,  Educational Media Specialist, who use Synthesia to create e-learning videos for technical enablement of Collibra customers.

The Challenge

Collibra offers multiple technical products to leading companies worldwide. With Collibra University, the data intelligence platform aids adoption and enablement.

Freddy and Kate, who manage Collibra University, consider video as the most efficient format. It best simplifies technical content for learners with or without prior knowledge. But recording video comes with a number of challenges:

  • Untrained Cast: Chasing Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who were available and comfortable to present on camera was time-consuming.
  • Flexibility: Undergoing iteration rounds were highly inefficient. Files had to be sent around and feedback from SMEs came in Word docs with timestamps.
  • Hard to scale: Filming and production usually take weeks, it’s really hard to keep up with the pace of new Collibra releases.
We were constantly battling to find SMEs who could and would present on camera. It’s really time-consuming. - Freddy Pinto, Senior Learning Experience Designer

The Solution

With Synthesia, Collibra can now transform complex technical scripts into concise training videos and streamline the collaboration process with SMEs. Here's how they do it:

  1. Instructional designers and SMEs create a detailed Word doc, which is shared with Freddy and Kate.
  2. Freddy and Kate turn the Word doc into a digestible script, upload it to Synthesia, pick an Avatar, add content to the scenes, and the video is ready for review.
  3. SMEs leave comments in Synthesia and Freddy and Kate update all in one place – and voilà, the video is ready to upload to the LMS.

Here is an example of a training video that Freddy and Kate created in less than a day 👇

This is what the team values about Synthesia:

  • Workspaces: The team collects not only feedback from other teams but also shares video drafts with each other, allowing for quick updates without leaving the platform.
  • Extensive media library: The team can access 10M+ stock images and videos without having to search anywhere else.
  • Ease of use: The platform is intuitive and simple. The team started to produce high-quality learning content in the first week.
The wide array of voices, accents and diverse avatars is super helpful. Especially for us who are very focused on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. - Katrianna Quatraro, Educational Media Specialist

The Results

The implementation of Synthesia has produced impressive results:

  • Time savings: The team was able to reduce video production time by 50%, enabling them to produce multiple videos in a single day.
  • Scaling Collibra University: In 6 months, Collibra University has grown to host over 30 self-serve courses with AI videos.
  • Increased video output: The team has developed a library of around 100 videos to date, and they can update each one in minutes.

Freddy and Kate plan to use Synthesia for internal learning in the future. Other departments have already reached out to learn how they've become such a video content machine.
