Senior Educator

We are exposed to polished and professional content that we only wish we could recreate in a small- to medium-sized company. Hiring outside vendors to create videos, situational learning, and multimedia presentations is beyond the budget for many of us, and yet we recognize and understand the benefits of increasing employee and customer engagement through the leveraging of technology to supplement our online learning. If only we could find a way to do it ourselves…

In this session, we will explore ways of using affordable platforms and technology to create your own courses. You'll learn do-it-yourself solutions like acquiring your own video equipment, installing a platform that will let you grow and learn, justifying your training dollars with management, and building from what's already out there to make dynamic and engaging courses that your employees will be sure to remember. Plus, we'll talk about how to connect with local vendors, colleges, and schools to tap their knowledge and help support your own learning.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Ways to expand your existing budget and justify new equipment/platforms
  • How to overcome fear and resistance to learning new software platforms and technology
  • Tips and tricks for leveraging your limited budget
  • How to inexpensively leverage local resources, schools, vendors, etc.
  • How a DIY approach is simultaneously affordable and wicked fun


Designers, managers, senior leaders (directors, VP, CLO, executive, etc.), trainers, and educators

Technology discussed:

Trivantis software package (Lectora Inspire, Camtasia, Snagit), video equipment (camera, microphone, lighting, etc.)
