SELT106 Simplifying the Creation and Delivery of eLearning
3:15 PM - 4:00 PM Wednesday, October 24
Expo Hall: eLearning Tools Stage
eLearning has traditionally been overly complex. Learning management systems are clunky and hard to use. eLearning content must be created by experts, meaning that the turnaround time for creating content is extensive, with trainers unable to edit and update content with ease. As a result, trainers often resort to “boring” training resources, such as PDFs, Word docs, and videos. The result is a repetitive learning experience and a disengaged learner.
This session will explain the process behind building a tool that anybody can use to create and deliver engaging online training. It will break down eLearning creation and delivery into its fundamental parts, identifying the pain points of traditional eLearning and pinpointing the key areas of need for the eLearning space. You’ll then examine how to rebuild an eLearning platform in its simplest form, stripping away unnecessary complexity and creating a tool that’s accessible at any skill level. You’ll explore the step-by-step process of creating an intuitive UX and UI experience based on the psychological principles of learning, for both the trainer and trainee.
In this session, you will learn:
- How reducing the complexity of eLearning tools can lead to an enhanced learning experience, better training outcomes, and ROI
- Why simplifying the trainer experience can directly impact learner outcomes
- The pedagogical theory that informs tool design and product management
- The step-by-step process behind refactoring the UX design of a tool
Novice to intermediate designers, developers, managers, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
