Paper-based participant guides are great tools to supplement an instructor-led classroom experience. However, the static information on the page can leave a lot to be desired, especially if your participant guide is simply a series of slides from your presentation. And once the program is over, how do you make sure all of their great notes and aha-moments don’t get forgotten in a drawer in the learner’s desk?

In this session you will explore how the use of a second-screen experience enables people to engage with others and gives them quick access to information when they need it. You will discover the many ways a second screen can be used to enhance classroom training. You will examine how to transition paper-based classroom material into a paperless environment with a focus on making material searchable and accessible. You will leave this session with techniques that add more depth to your learning experiences.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What a second-screen experience is
  • What to consider when creating a paperless classroom environment
  • Strategies to move a paper-based classroom experience to a paperless one
  • How a connected device can add more engagement in the classroom and afterwards

Novice and intermediate designers and developers.
