eLearning Guild Spotlight: Using Media in your eLearning Development
August 2, 2017 @ 8:15 am - 2:00 pm
The development phase of an eLearning solution is an exciting and challenging undertaking. It’s when you make choices about the types of media to use, the structure of the solution, and the interactions, all in an effort to successfully bring your design to life.
In this Spotlight, four experts will share their practices and practical advice on developing an effective solution using media—but not in the traditional application approach. We’ll explore topics such as media integration, prototyping, authoring tool options, and even getting out of the box with code modifications that make media use extraordinary. Join this Spotlight and set yourself up to exceed the expectations of your stakeholders and delight your learners!
Rapid Prototyping for Your eLearning Projects
A common challenge in eLearning development is effectively collaborating with your subject matter experts and other project stakeholders. This is critical during the transition from storyboard to development. It can often be difficult to help others see your vision when it comes to developing media-rich, interactive eLearning because of the static look and feel of typical storyboards.
In this session, you will explore an adapted approach taken from good web development practice: the prototype. You’ll learn how you can develop a rapid prototype with free tools to quickly and effectively share your storyboard with stakeholders in a way that is easy to review and respond to with feedback. This session will provide you with an innovative way to engage your stakeholders to save time in development while creating exciting eLearning experiences!
In this session, you will learn:
- How the prototyping process saves you time and effort in development
- Which elements to pull from a typical eLearning storyboard for your prototype
- How to leverage free, accessible tools for developing prototypes
- About a simple workflow for obtaining fast, application-based feedback in a variety of settings
