Although we could have provided a “live” training session via a tool like Adobe Connect, the movie worked out even better. In addition to providing our testers with a movie, we also provided them with an Excel spreadsheet that served as a “browser testing plan.” We also watched the Google Docs spreadsheet, looking for possible misunderstandings – either in terms of filling out the spreadsheet incorrectly or misunderstanding how the courses were supposed to function.  We recently undertook a rather large browser testing project. We then asked our contractors for referrals.

The iPad is your ultimate travel companion

Clive on Learning

Similarly, it would be possible to bring along TV programmes and movies to fill any voids when all you've got on offer is local TV. I’m not going to read books on my iPad at the beach, but I could have extra books loaded up just in case I finish the one I’m carrying with me. In my role as a consultant, it is hard to completely cut yourself off from business-related communication while on holiday, so the ability to receive all my emails and blog feeds was useful, along with access to my Evernote database and Google docs. I didn't mean to get an iPad. So now I've got one.

The Importance of Reinforcement

Just have them watch movies. The docs want to sit and eat their lunch anyway. don't know about you - but I've never learned much watching a movie. I have been having arguments about the importance of reinforcement recently. Mostly because, once again, I find myself in a situation where I have lots of tutorials to build and next to no time to build them. The other concern: how long I will have the end-user's attention. No one wants the tutorial set for full new user training to go over a couple of hours. So we have to decide what we can logically eliminate.
