Microsoft One Note Training: What Is One Note and What Can It Do?

OpenSesame

If you’re like most people, you weren’t aware that Microsoft OneNote even existed, much less what it could do. This application is probably the most ignored and most underestimated of all of those found within the Microsoft 2010 suite.

#BCTECH Summit – an instructional designer’s perspective

Spark Your Interest

Last week I attended the #BCTECHSummit and one of the things I was interested in finding out was how companies were innovating around technology and training. Differentiated Learning – Microsoft One Note Learning tools and Skype translator are both tools that enable learning. BCIC wrote a nice blog post highlighting some of the cool things about our tech scene. And of course if I could be a hometown type of cheerleader, well I was happy to do that too.

4 Tips to Writing eLearning Scripts That Sing

Association eLearning

But it flows more “singingly,” because it’s direct, uses several short sentences instead of one long one, and it sounds like a conversation rather than a textbook. One note of caution for lightening your scripts.

What I Learned at LSCon

Experiencing eLearning

I took about 30 pages of notes over the 3 days. This list is one thing I can use from every session I attended. I don’t do infographics often, but I do need to present data and charts in courses (including one of my current projects). One note is that Learning Locker is working with xAPIs that can talk to Slack and pull data. One quote stood out: “If you can test it online, you can teach it online.”

ATD17 Post Review: Rants & Raves Edition

eLearning 24-7

There were a few video learning platforms there and one product I did like on the video course build side, more on that in a bit. Mobile – Sure vendors noted it, but it wasn’t a driver. The common and one noted in various labor sites are 10,000+. Atlanta.

Sharing pointedly or broadly

Clark Quinn

In a (rare) fit of tidying, I was moving from one note-taking app to another, and found a diagram I’d jotted, and it rekindled my thinking. I can’t fully recall what prompted the attempt at characterization, but one result of revisiting was thinking about the media in terms of whether they’re part of a natural mechanism of ‘show your work’ (ala Bozarth)/’work out loud’ (ala Jarche). a course) or sent directly to one person.

Top 8 FREE Open Source LMSs

eLearning 24-7

One Note: Open source systems in general are not “turnkey”, which means you have to do some customization to the platform – either heavy customization, adding plugins and so forth. I should note that in the world of free open source systems, a couple of items are starting to show up. At one time it was all – “on your own servers” or nothing. Everyone loves free, especially with software.

Creating an e-learning strategy that works

eLearning 24-7

On a weekly basis you are already doing some form of strategy (going to the grocery store, buying stuff online, renting a flat/apt/condo/house or buying one, etc.), I should note I define e-learning as online learning). Nowadays, three years is long term, anything beyond that will always change, heck in three years the ice cap could melt and we could all end up on one island or the robots can take over the world, so five years is too long). You will want one.

The 3 Best (And 3 Worst) Glasses for Virtual Reality Training

KnowledgeAnywhere

While it is the most scalable option available, one note of caution for this virtual reality training option: interactivity is not possible. Built by one of the biggest smartphone manufacturers in the world, this headset should provide a viable alternative to Google Cardboard as an affordable, scalable training opportunity. The fast-emerging concept of virtual reality has opened the door to training opportunities that were thought impossible just a few years ago.

Adam Cannon Responds to #AskMeMonday on Captivate 2017

eLearning Brothers

Of all the new features, the one that I like best (as I said on Twitter) is the ability to convert a non-responsive project to a responsive project. In light of last week’s release of Adobe Captivate 2017, our #AskMeMonday was focused on that topic.

World of Learning Conference Review

eLearning 24-7

While I am sure that occurred at WOLC, the ones I gazed at, which were presented by vendors, had no sales pitch whatsoever, rather it was all about a specific subject tied to e-learning. I saw one list that had over three pages of key decision makers – you know the ones any vendor would droll over – walking the floor which led to. Heck, one vendor I know even landed a massive deal right there at the show. No one has asked me that before.”

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

The same tool and method can be highly effective for one person and not effective for others. No Excuses At one presentation someone told me that it was okay for them not to know about tools and methods because "they would find out about them when they needed them." No Clear Tool Choices One of the techniques I commonly use now that eLearning Learning has Related Terms is to look at a topic and see what relates to it.

Product Review: Articulate Storyline

eLearning 24-7

One photo character – I mean seriously? New Slide – add a new slide to the project (more on that in one sec). Storyline as noted earlier is a robust product and this robustness is seen the moment you decide to add a new slide. One note about this. The ones I used the most (it could be different for you). Main one I did not use. Notes – I found this feature to be underwhelming. However there is one downside to the recorder.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

I am a big fan of having 3rd party contractors creating courses.

Product Review: Plateau TMS (Talent Management System)

After viewing the Plateau TMS, my concerns in one area have been eliminated, in others, not so much. Each one can be a stand alone or be purchased as a set, or all three or four. When an end user clicks on one of the items, a pop-up box appears with detailed information regarding that item. One note: the front end may look different, depending on what module you select i.e. PCS, PL, PS or PP. One cannot exist without the other.
