This month’s contest challenge is to create a course that uses the Mission: Possible theme (spy, adventure, or our personal favorite, space exploration) to create a course highlighting one of the many topics to be discussed. For example, create something that talks about minimalism, audio, video, games, mLearning, Responsive Course Design, or CourseMill. For the full agenda and inspiration, check out the LUC 2017 page on our website. Bonus points for anyone who uses Cincinnati or flying pigs in their course.
Branching scenarios are an effective and engaging method of eLearning. Sergey Snegirev will show examples and explain the steps behind building your first scenario using Lectora 17 and BranchTrack.
This week’s special guest, Jennifer Valley, Community Manager at Trivantis, talks about storytelling, common hurdles, and ways to get past them. For more information on Storytelling download our eBook Keys to Storytelling in eLearning.
The Lectora User Conference 2017 is almost here and it’s not too late to sign up and come to Cincinnati for a great time of learning and collaboration with fellow Lectora and CourseMill users. Stephanie Ivec, the LUC2017 show coordinator, and Rick Zanotti, host of Lectora Live talk about all the fun things you’ll do and learn while at the Conference.
Rick talks with Karen Ngowe of the CDC about Section 508, Lectora Online, and successful course development.
For Contest 19. we want you to create a Lectora or Lectora Online theme, which should include a color scheme, navigation, and design style. You can use flat design, bright colors, new fonts, hand drawn graphics and icons, minimalism, or maybe a fun new color.
Join Craig Weiss, principal analyst at The Craig Weiss Group, LLC, and John Blackmon, Chief Technology Officer of Trivantis, on Wednesday, March 15, at 1:30 PM EDT, as they discuss the key trends of 2017, including micro-learning and mobile.
Where is the eLearning industry with micro-learning and mobile today?
What can you expect to happen in the near future?
How can you make both micro-learning and mobile an actionable part of your eLearning strategy?
In this episode, we talk with Stephanie Ivec, whom we affectionately refer to the Queen of the LUC. Stephanie is running the show and making sure everything works so that, in her words everything is “awesome!”
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
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.
