isEazy

Authoring tools have become the perfect solution to capture the attention of your audience in the easiest, fastest, and most impactful way.

eLearningArt

Having content pushed on us in the form of bullets and slides is clicking boring. Instead of designing by focusing on content (let alone PowerPoint slides) as is so common, we produce engaging e-learning by focusing on the learning experience first and foremost. Like marketers, we are also trying to gain attention and motivate people to action. Respect the fact that there are a lot of other things competing for the attention of your audience.

Kapp Notes

The Lectora 2017 Users Conference promises to be an exciting and engaging event. Here are the slides from my keynote (but no peaking until it’s over). What we missed on the mission is provide in the information below (and in the slides above). Uncertainty adds suspense, intrigue, and focuses the learner’s attention on the task at hand.

How to MOOC: Bite-Sized Content

Your Training Edge

Studies going back to the 1970s have shown that people simply can’t pay attention and retain information over long periods of time. In fact, most people can pay attention for only very short periods of time and then they need to use the information somehow or it will vanish from their working memory. The attention and memory problems are solved in MOOCs by doing away with the long lecture altogether in favor of a brain-friendly method of delivery called “bite-sized learning.”

Any e-learning professional

If we can get learners to pay attention to the e-learning course, then the learning will follow. We’ve all seen “page-turner” e-learning courses that show slide after slide of text. Articulate, captivate and e’lectora’fy your e-learning with the latest authoring tools available in the market. They have short attention spans and tend to get bored quickly. Isn’t it amazing how far eLearning has come since the early 1990s?

Perception in the E-Learning World

eLearning 24-7

Lectora on the other hand, has an online authoring tool, but for whatever reason continues to have it lag behind in features to their desktop tool, and continues to push their VR authoring tool more so, in my opinion, then the authoring tool itself. That vendor I saw last week, has decided to slide their LXP under the header of their name and the term “cloud” Why? Replace the name with something that attracts attention and exudes whatever you are trying to say.
