    Description:

    Let's admit it: Most e-learning content just plain sucks. The sad reality is that most e-learning courses require learners to sit through disappointing experiences where information is poorly organized, the content isn't relevant, and the interactions seem contrived and without purpose. During this session you will explore many of the reasons why most e-learning fails and the components that contribute to bad e-learning design. You'll explore several practical methods you can immediately apply to fix your bad e-learning courses.

    Applications:

    • Understand why e-learning isn't always the answer.
    • Learn why clicking doesn't make interactivity meaningful.
    • Comprehend why good e-learning requires more than instructional design.

    Description:

    Remote learning is here to stay, as is the Zoom fatigue that many learners experience. The importance of compelling content is becoming ever more apparent, but trying to do that with the same tools you’ve always had can be hard, right? Wrong. PowerPoint gives you terrific tools to create the kind of dynamic, visual content that you need to capture your audience’s attention. With functions that allow interactive sequences, navigable content to respond to your audience, and pop quizzes for informal knowledge checks. Come along to this masterclass packed with live demonstration of how to create compelling presentations for successful training in a virtual environment.
