804 Create the Right Content Under a Ticking Clock
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Friday, October 27
St Croix B
All education organizations struggle to work within the triple constraint: quality, cost, and time. When adding additional resources or extending a deadline is not an option, designers can be faced with sacrificing the quality of the product in order to stay within the project’s limitations. When faced with this dilemma, maximizing your design-per-minute ratio is key.
In this session, you will learn how to outline your content to fit most naturally into eLearning formats. You will learn techniques to stretch your work further to create interesting, related course models from a single design. You will explore how rapid modification of color, placement, and symmetry can very quickly add interesting design schemes to already developed content and richness to a course where repetition was prevalent. Additionally, you will learn some simple, quick practice exercises that will help train your mind to work faster while maintaining the creative edge that your courses deserve.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to outline your content to naturally align to an eLearning modality
- How to create base-functional designs to speed up your startup time
- How to modify base-functional designs and existing content to increase volume
- How to facilitate or complete short practice sessions to improve design speed
Novice to advanced designers, developers, and managers. Students will need a base understanding of how to use Articulate Storyline or a similar design software.
discussed in this session:
Articulate Storyline 2 and Microsoft PowerPoint.
