Want to grow your career in Learning & Development? Then you need to know how to design e-Learning. It's just that simple. But perhaps you don't know where to start? Or maybe you don't want to learn the basics on your own? Or you just need a safe learning environment where you can receive immediate feedback as you go? Join local leader Rich Herbert and L&D Philadelphia co-Founder & President John Luczkowski for a hands-on walkthrough on how to design for your first e-Learning module.
Attendees will outline the basics concepts of e-Learning design, identify the necessary requirements to gather before beginning to design and develop a course, review basic e-Learning terminology, review their instructional design process and techniques to incorporate components necessary to designing effective e-Learning into their current skill set, and will work side by side with our facilitator and each other to build their first online course.
Before the workshop, attendees must complete the following actions:
1. Download a free 30 day trial of Articulate Storyline from articulate.com
2. Install and test that the software works.
3. Watch the introduction videos that appear on the Storyline home-screen once you start the program.
4. Bring a laptop, power chord, and a PowerPoint presentation that you want to convert to an e-Learning Module.
5. Bring questions, concerns, and ideas to share with the facilitator and each other.
6. Bring ideas, media files - sounds, pictures, video, etc, that they may want to use in their course.
7. Come prepared to review key terms and concepts, participate, and build a course.
By the end of this session, attendees will walk away with a fully or partially completed e-Learning module which they can finish on their own.
Don't have a powerpoint or other presentation or source document you want to turn into an e-Learning Module? No worries, just email our facilitator at email@example.com to receive files a few days ahead of time that you can use to build a course!
