Synchronous Software Scavenger Hunts

Experiencing eLearning

Application training via a synchronous tool like WebEx, Adobe Connect, or Elluminate too often ends up with passive learners. If I’m doing software application training, doing it as a webinar isn’t really my first choice. I’d rather create a bunch of Captivate tutorials and job aids to let people learn at their own pace, when they need to use the skills. Just-in-time, interactive training that supports or simulates actual tasks is my first choice. In my current contract, I’ve been working on creating a Moodle site for a year-long training program.

In praise of webcasting

Clive on Learning

Arriving late to an auditorium already full to the brim, I was forced yesterday to watch Itiel Dror's presentation to the ALT-C 2008 conference in Leeds from a second room where a video feed was being streamed in using Elluminate. Now I've seen Itiel speak a number of times, so my attention focused more on the effectiveness of the technology that was being used to deliver his presentation. My conclusion was that a live (or even a recorded) video feed of a presentation is almost as good as being at the event in person. Others I'd miss out on. Now that's a difficult one
