How do you build eLearning?

B Online Learning

When it comes to building eLearning, how do you do it? Do you just open up Articulate Storyline , have a look at the content that your SME has provided and then just start building it? Do you import a bunch of PowerPoint slides, add a player skin with the obligatory Next and Previous buttons, attach some word documents as resources, and then hit publish? Do they need to be assessed to prove their understanding has changed? So how do we do that well?

In Defense of the Four Levels

Integrated Learnings

Over the past year or so, I’ve noticed several comments about how Kirkpatrick’s model of four levels of evaluation is outdated. Before digging into its pros and cons, let’s do a quick mini-review of the model. An initial gap analysis should identify specific business needs (level 4) and what is required to fulfill those needs (level 3). I agree that we should do this consistently. Like any model, Kirkpatrick’s four levels has limitations. Do you agree?

Train for Results, not Grades

I teach college science classes, and my students are always a little surprised when I tell them, “I know you need to do well on the final exam to move on in your programs, but here are my goals for you…”.

We have created a Gap Analysis Worksheet to identify that information.

Learning Objectives and Corporate Goals: How to create the perfect training

The second misconception we are denouncing is the Kirkpatrick’s Evaluation process to determine the effectiveness of the training materials. Why do Trainings Fail?

Learning in the corporate environment is not merely “knowing” or being “informed about”. How do you measure knowledge?
