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.

Blackboard’s statement of principles about open source says it is. committed to supporting the growth, development and use of open source technologies in education worldwide.”. Blackboard also says it.
