SELT102 Quit Clowning Around: The Content Matters
11:00 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, October 24
Expo Hall: eLearning Tools Stage
Yesterday’s employees view development and training as an isolated activity outside their daily routine, but today’s employees are pushing organizations into uncharted territory where informal, engaging, interactive eLearning must be incorporated into their lives when and where they need it. Most employees don’t have the time to click through slides or courses that are not engaging or interactive, but how do you take your legacy content and reimagine it quickly?
In this session, you’ll learn the four basic instructional design theories of sound digital content development. You’ll explore how to apply each theory to engaging interactive material using a humorous real-world case study. You’ll leave this session with a renewed focus on how to take your legacy content and turn it into an engaging digital training program that not only engages the learner but produces successful outcomes for your organization.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to both meet employees’ needs and keep your organization relevant and successful by employing a new set of instructional design tools and learning methodologies
- Proven techniques for taking your 20th-century content into the 21st century
- How to curate new content and tap into the informal learning space
- How to harness new and existing tools to deliver a continuous, personalized learning experience that is relevant and provided at the point of need
Audience:Novice to advanced designers, managers, and senior leaders (directors, VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
