Performance Support

Moving From eLearning to Performance Support

Performance support is a term that we hear pretty often in eLearning circles these days. But what exactly does it entail, and how does it differ from traditional eLearning? Delivery and tracking of performance support is another big differentiator, as you won’t have tests, and you need to get information to where the users are doing their work, rather than on a desktop.

Presented by John Blackmon, Trivantis CTO, this session will take an in-depth look at what makes content performance support, and how you can not only utilize existing training materials as performance support but also how to use a single source to provide both traditional training and performance support. You’ll also see how you can track usage patterns of your content, even when it is used as performance support.

In this session, you will learn:

How performance support differs from eLearning
How you can repurpose traditional eLearning to be used as performance support
How best to deliver performance support
How to track performance support

Contest 18: Game On!

I love gaming! Board games, card games, computer games, and video games—itt doesn’t matter what, I’m interested. From big family gatherings playing Pinochle and Euchre to a relaxing night in playing a solo video game, gaming has been in my life for a long time. I like that you can learn something new, have fun, and bond with other people.
This month’s contest challenge is to take your favorite game (or make up your own) and use it as an opportunity to teach a concept or topic in a Lectora course. Bonus points if you make it responsive. And Lectora® Inspire users, don’t forget about the eLearning Brothers Interaction Builder in your Inspire Tools.

Congrats to last month’s winner, @ascott7223. Check out his winning course here. Good luck! I can’t wait to see what you create! Entries are due by March 20, 2017.

Guidelines to Importing Microsoft PowerPoint Content Into Lectora

Many features in Microsoft PowerPoint are supported in Lectora, but not all. Importing PowerPoint content is not an exact one-to-one conversion.
