DevLearn 2019 Conference - October 24, 2019

We’re all constantly looking for ways our audiences can apply new content in authentic, real-world scenarios. But what can you do when you don't have the time or money to build a full eLearning course, or when you realize your audience is tired of the standard eLearning "text and next" format? You could develop several scenario-based test questions, but unfortunately that won’t realistically replicate what learners will experience while on the job (since answering test questions isn’t how they will be applying what they learned). But … what if there was another way to provide realistic, scenario-based application so people actually gain confidence that they can apply what they’ve learned to their job?

In this interactive session you’ll learn how Camtasia can be used to create a scenario-based interactive video which allows the audience to apply what they’ve learned by making choices and "experiencing" the results of those choices. You’ll also find out how a learning and development professional from a Fortune 50 company leveraged this kind of user-generated video solution to help people learn insurance principles and experience the result of applying those principles in a realistic setting.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to apply Design Thinking principles as you transfer content into realistic scenarios
  • How to build an interactive video in Camtasia 2018
  • To use agile principles such as showcasing a minimum viable product (MVP) to your target to get feedback and make changes
  • How multiple learning objects can be housed within a learning platform to create a robust learning experience
