Small is Big: Converting PDFs to E-Learning Modules

Origin Learning

What does a PDF bring to mind? One of the biggest myths surrounding e-learning is that it is simply information presented on a computer screen. Chunking content will be the basic task of converting any PDF to a course. Pages and pages of words? Lengthy research documents?

Online courses must die!

Use other, much more straightforward media instead for information transfer.

Why completion rates are no longer the metric of success in modern learning

Kineo

When you’re looking to develop a holy grail of just in time information and resources for your learners, don’t be surprised when they dip in and out, abandon mid-module, or skip to page three of a PDF. Unless we’re talking compliance or a course awarding credentials , a drop in course completions might actually be a good thing. The whole point of pulling your learners in and delivering at the point of need is that you’re providing what your people need to do their jobs.

In informal learning, contributors, collaborators, and catalysts, need to "seed" conversations with ideas that are rapidly useful to the community members.
