Industrial Strength Learning

It’s critical that learners come away with new knowledge and information from eLearning lessons, but frequently they don’t. Learners sometimes find the material or presentation so foreign that even high-quality information just doesn’t stay with them. Integrating mutually shared pop culture and historical experiences into eLearning is one approach to making lessons both entertaining and lasting while creating engaging eLearning courses.

In this session you will learn some new ways of designing and developing your eLearning by looking at it in the historical perspective. You’ll see demonstrations of how history and the lessons learned from past history can make our training more memorable. You’ll also learn through several instances where the confluence of learning, both inside and outside the classroom, can influence retention of the training you present to learners.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How almost any subject is appropriate for this adaptive technique
  • How to think about subjects from a different perspective
  • How to make training more memorable through the use of historical examples
  • How learning inside and outside the classroom can impact retention

Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
