9 Best Practices To Follow When Converting ILT To eLearning

Converting Instructor-Led Training (ILT) or classroom training to eLearning demands a well-planned approach. Follow these best practices to convert ILT to eLearning and succeed in conversion projects. This post was first published on eLearning Industry.

The Pros And Cons Of Small ILT Classes

One of the most celebrated characteristics of online Instructor-Led Training classes is that they can be offered to an infinite number of employees, all at the same time. But what if the negative effects of large physical class sizes apply to online ILT, too? Is less still more? This post was first published on eLearning Industry.

Managing Instructor-led training from the Instructor’s perspective

“Before you teach the course, you must schedule it.” – Confucius
Okay, maybe that’s not a direct quote from Confucius… but it’s still 100% true!  Many learning professionals spend time each day scheduling instructor-led and virtual instructor-led classes in their learning management system.
This session explains how to efficiently manage classes in Adobe’s learning management system, Adobe Captivate Prime.  You will learn how to:

  • Schedule instructor-led and virtual instructor-led classes
  • Use QR codes to streamline classroom attendance tracking
  • Manage attendees, multiple class sections, and wait lists
  • Add resources to a class
  • Track virtual attendee participation automatically via integration between Captivate Prime and Connect

These handy tips will be delivered by Dr. Allen Partridge, Head of Evangelism, Digital Learning Solutions, Adobe.

The 5-Step Process To Ensure A Robust Blended Learning Strategy

Organizations today can’t rely on just Instructor-Led Training or online learning in isolation to address changing learning needs. To offer an all-around training to learners, the best of both ILT and eLearning need to be combined. This is what blended learning is all about. This post was first published on eLearning Industry.

Best Practices to Switch From Instructor Led Training to eLearning

Instructor Led Training- this word gives you a picture of Instructor in the classroom with a PowerPoint (PPT) and the learners with their notebooks. This was the leading traditional learning method used for employee training and development. But the trend shows steady decline in instructor led training over the last few years. As new learning…

[Free Webinar!] More Courses, Less Cost: How to Provide More Content on a Limited Budget

New year, new training budget!  And a new class to help you figure out what to do with it.    Managing a budget has always been weirdly enjoyable for me – sort of like playing a jigsaw puzzle with money.  You add and subtract until you have the right number of resources to accomplish each goal, and where you don’t have cash flow, you hold things together with duct tape and creativity.

More Courses, Less Cost: How to Provide More Content on a Limited Budget

How is your 2019 training budget treating you?  It’s early in the year, and many L&D managers and directors are figuring out how to best apply their budget to their annual goals.  Many of us have limited funds, so we start asking ourselves questions like the following:

  1. Should I develop this course or learning program in house, or purchase existing content from a vendor?
  2. What kinds of content are out there, and how do I select content that will best serve my learners?
  3. How can I use course content catalogs to augment our existing curriculum?
  4. How do I develop more custom content without investing more of my budget?
  5. Can I save money by presenting some instructor-led classes in a virtual format?

In this session, Katrina Marie Baker, Senior Learning Evangelist of Adobe, will facilitate a discussion of these questions.  You will have an opportunity to share your ideas and hear what fellow attendees are doing with their training programs.  Katrina will also share real-life examples and practical tips for prioritizing, planning, and budgeting against your organization’s L&D priorities.

Adobe eLearning Conference & Captivate Specialist Training

I’m not just a speaker at the upcoming Adobe eLearning Conference in Washington DC on March 13th, 2019, but I’m also an attendee. For those who are unsure if this event is worth your time or the effort to convince your boss, consider the following.

During the previous years events, I met a bunch of people like myself who design eLearning for their living. It’s really great sharing similar experiences with one another, and knowing we are not alone in the challenges we face. More importantly, though, I got to hear other ideas and solutions as to how to solve elearning challenges. As a freelancer, I just don’t get that in my home office. My two office companions are great for other reasons but they don’t offer any suggestions for improving my eLearning designs.

Each Adobe live event offers a glimpse of what eLearning at Adobe will look like in the future. I first learned about virtual reality, fluid box responsive design, and interactive video at past Adobe live events and I’m looking forward to learning about new features this spring.

As I said up front, I’m also an attendee. When I’m not speaking or sitting in on the general sessions, I will be attending my fellow speaker’s sessions. Thanks to them, the effort I put into preparing material to speak about is returned to me tenfold. The creative solutions I’ve learned from my fellow speakers has allowed me to offer a wider range of eLearning solutions to my clients. I’m very thankful for the knowledge my fellow speakers have given me.

A new feature of the last few Adobe live events has been the Adobe Captivate Specialist training. The Adobe Captivate specialist training is a separate registration and requires a fee of $499. A short time before the conference you will get you access to pre-session training material. The pre-session training material is over seven hours of tutorials from Dr. Pooja Jaisingh. If you don’t know Pooja, she is the leading expert in Adobe Captivate and works as a Senior Evangelist for Adobe eLearning.

On the day of the Specialist training, you will register and be assigned to one of several classes. Breakfast is included and then you will begin your Captivate training until it’s time to break for lunch (also included). Later in the afternoon once all the training is concluded you will begin your assessment. You’ll know right away if you are successful and then you’re free to break until the conference the next day, where you will also get your certificate and a digital badge that you can add to your LinkedIn profile that is verifiable by potential employers.

Probably the most important aspect of this conference is the value. The conference itself is completely free, and if you elect to get your Adobe Captivate Specialist designation it’s only going to cost you or your organization the $499. Breakfast and lunch are included for the conference. Sure you have to pay for your transportation and accommodation but that would be true of any conference you decide to attend in 2019. Most eLearning conferences without any certifications are a thousand or more dollars just to register. If you use Adobe Captivate, are switching to Adobe Captivate, or are considering Adobe Captivate this is the conference for you.

I hope to see you in Washington DC on either March 12th, March 13th, or on both days.
