Track: Tools

Responsive eLearning design is becoming less of a nice-to-have feature and more of an absolute must for many organizations. As a result, the most popular authoring tools, like Captivate, Storyline, and Lectora, have been adding more features for integrating responsive design, while some newer tools have been designed right from the start to accommodate the needs of this design concept. That said, these tools each take a different approach to making content responsive, so you’ll want to make sure you’re using the right one for your needs.

Track: Instructional Design

You’re faced with volumes of complicated content that you must translate into effective training. Your SMEs are pushing for delivering it through hours and hours of web-based training, which you know your audience will dread. You’ve heard of the benefits of using a micro format, but how can you possibly use it to cover all of that content?

Track: Media

While human narration can add warmth and help connect the learner to your eLearning course, hiring a professional can be costly and time-consuming. Recording yourself can be a more budget-friendly option; but have you tried to record yourself only to find that you sound more robotic than the text-to-speech software? Great voice-over work takes strong delivery and assistance from recording software—and thankfully, it’s actually quite easy to learn the basics of both.

Track: Games and Gamification

When you say the word “game,” you might think of first-person shooters, slaying dragons, racing cars, and fighting battles—all of the things that your manager does not want to hear. If you are uncertain of how to plan, design, and develop a serious (business) game, then this is the right session for you. Making a “serious game” acceptable to management and fun for the player is the goal.

Track: Management and Strategy

Status update. Touch base. Weekly meetings. Scope creep. Project plans. Tasks. Milestones. Deliverables. All these things can overwhelm you when managing projects—but they don’t have to! It turns out there are ways to juggle and advance your numerous projects while at the same time maintaining a semblance of serenity.

Track: Video

You use online video, but do you know how it works and why videos uploaded to YouTube may behave differently than those uploaded directly into an LMS? Online video use is growing for training and learning, but many people don’t know what happens and what’s possible after a video is uploaded.

Track: Tools

Rapid eLearning development tools are incredibly helpful, but they may leave you scratching your head, wondering “How am I going to do that?” You know there has to be a way to make the idea you have in your head work in this tool, but you’re just not quite sure how. That’s when it’s time to shift your creativity into high gear and find a crafty solution for things that aren’t default processes.

Track: Media

It’s a common problem: You’ve been handed the same old content, but you just can’t bear the idea of creating the same old learning experience with it. But even if you’re limited in the changes you can make to the content, you do have two great tools for enhancing it: storytelling and visuals. By applying powerful storytelling and graphic design techniques, you can transform that tired content into engaging eLearning and leave your audience amazed at how much more entertaining and useful their learning experience has become.

Track: Data and Measurement

Most eLearning tools out of the box publish to xAPI, but you still have to package up the course and upload it to your LMS, not really taking advantage of xAPI’s true potential of tracking learning no matter where the learning content may be.

Track: Management and Strategy

It can be difficult to motivate employees to learn. Often, they either don’t think the materials apply to them or they believe they don’t need to know anything more to succeed.

Track: Performance Support

Are you overwhelming new hires with thousands of policies, procedures, and fact sheets in your knowledge base? New hires rarely even know what they’re looking for, much less how to find it. This frustration prevents them from gaining confidence and delays achieving mastery in the job. And let’s face it—even experienced employees can struggle from time to time finding the right piece of information in the knowledge base.
