Making constructive conversations

Clark Quinn

So, Charles advocates an approach to be taken in conversations with employees that involves a set of specific questions. That’s not necessarily a good ratio; it would likely be better 50/50 or even less! As part of my thinking about the Future of Work, I’ve been thinking about how to make it safe to share, in the sense of an innovation culture (ala the Learning Organization ).

Use conversations in eLearning courses

Today I wanted to show you how you can build conversations in your eLearning courses. So I thought I’d show you some screenshots of what a conversation might look like. Followed up by a slide that could be a lead in to a scenario where you have a snippet of a conversation that was built through sequential images, followed by some kind of question.

Conversion percentage: The first step in finding out your store’s conversion percentage is tracking the number of footfalls (customer visits) to the store. To understand how effective your displays, promotions, and selections are, you’ll also want to know your conversion percentage (number of purchases / number of footfalls). Higher conversion optimization means more sales with less advertising and promotion, lowering your operational costs.

If you change the Width or Height without selecting  Maintain aspect ratio , you could end up with slides that are out of proportion. However, if you select Maintain aspect ratio , and then change the value of the Width, the Height will automatically change to a proportional value, and vice versa.

PowerPoint: My New Favorite (Free!) Video Converter

I have previously recommended using www.mediaconverter.org for video conversion. While I didn't have any trouble with that service, it was limited in that you could only do five conversions for free. The ClipConverter conversions are free. Not only can you convert a wide variety of online video content to MP3, AAC, WMA, M4A, OGG, MP4, 3GP, AVI, MPG, WMV and FLV, but you can also adjust the audio volume and bitrate as well as the video aspect ratio.

Custom eLearning Development: How Long Does it Take?

His previous data – from his March 2007 post – on this gives us the following ratios for different type of learning: 34:1 Instructor-Led Training (ILT), including design, lesson plans, handouts, PowerPoint slides, etc. 33:1 PowerPoint to E-Learning Conversion. Most of these look acceptable to me if we assume that ILT and Powerpoint to e-learning conversion is being done by SMEs and they don’t need support of any development staff.

Revisiting 70:20:10

And there were some insights from the conversations and my own reflections. To start, 70:20:10 is a framework, it’s not a specific ratio but a guide to thinking about the whole picture of developing organizational solutions to performance problems. Now, there are times when the ratio changes. Last week, the Debunker Club (led by Will Thalheimer) held a twitter debate on 70:20:10 (the tweet stream can be downloaded if you’re curious).

Time Estimates for E-Learning Development

Experiencing eLearning

This project is on the low end of a Level 2 by Chapman’s study, so the ratio for development is 127:1 (that is, 1 hour of e-learning takes 127 hours to develop). I’ll assume less than that because it’s a conversion and a lot of analysis has already been done with the face-to-face version. This estimate says that Captivate and Storyline development generally take 2 hours per finished minute to produce, or a ratio of 120:1.

The ratio of development time for conversion for online training is anywhere from 40 to 100 hrs to 1 hr of delivery depending on the level of interactivy and current state of content, and for a 6 week curriculum - that's a very long time.
