    *ALL NEW* Interactive eLearning Design Workshop
    Hosted by Tom Kuhlmann

    Sponsored by CARA 


    Join Tom Kuhlmann, Chief Learning Architect for Articulate, for an engaging workshop on designing and building interactive eLearning programs. Participants may register for either or both days of the 2-day workshop.

    CONTENT OUTLINE

    Day 1
    How to Build Interactive eLearning
     
    A lot of people complain about boring eLearning courses because many of them are irrelevant, poorly designed, and interactivity is usually limited to clicking the next button. In this session, we’ll explore what interactive eLearning is and how you can take a step away from the typical click and read content.  

    Tom Kuhlmann will focus on general concepts and ideas around developing interactive eLearning, and teach the attendees to move past the typical click and read courses. The concepts and ideas presented will allow for implementation in any authoring software.
    By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
    • Define interactivity and where it’s most valuable
    • Determine when and where to apply resources for interactive eLearning
    • Discover the basic building blocks for interactive eLearning
    • Design interactive learning models that can be quickly applied to the next course
    Day 2
    How to Use Articulate Storyline to Build Interactive eLearning
     
    Interested in exploring Articulate Storyline 2.0? Then we have a workshop for you! You’ll learn to create the basic interaction types in Articulate Storyline: click, mouseover, and drag/drop. Then, learn to apply these types of interactivity to your eLearning courses by examining some successful courses, deconstructing them, and building your own prototypes.

    Tom Kuhlmann will provide a basic overview of the authoring process in Articulate Storyline 2.0 and allow learners to create their own interactive content.
    By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
    • Create interactive content in Articulate Storyline 2.0
    • Deconstruct successful interactive modules
    • Build interactive module prototypes
     
    *If you don’t own Storyline. you can download a trial copy for the event. If you’re using Storyline 1, you can install a trial version of Storyline 2. Or attend with Storyline, however note that some of the content is specific to Storyline 2 features.

    How to Effectively Select, Organize, and Evaluate Webinar Content

    When writing a webinar, many designers have questions about the content. What content do I include? What do I exclude? What webinar format should I use; slides or a web demonstration? How do I organize the content? What learning activities are best given the webinar platform I am using? How do I weave an interactive webinar handout into my presentation? Knowing how to answer these questions is crucial to the success of your webinar.

    Webinar Attendee Will Learn To:
    • Integrate the content components of the Webinar Creation Process
    • Analyze webinar content and streamline it to one core message or intended outcome
    • Recognize different webinar content formats and determine which format is best to use when
    • Identify an effective webinar handout
    • Evaluate if content included in a webinar achieved its intended goal

    Outline
    1. Integrate content components of the Webinar Creation Process
    2. Understand different webinar content formats and determine the best to use when
    3. Recognize the importance of including a well-done webinar handout

    5. Live Q&A
    6. Closing Remarks
