Live Webinar – May 22nd, 2012 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EDT
Presented by: Training Magazine
Duration: 1 Hour 1 Category C PDU – Free PDU

“Boring”. “Tedious”. “Painful”. “Do I have to?” These are the moans and complaints of learners as receivers of the data-dump type of very technical and compliance forms of eLearning.

Technical and compliance elearning can be fun and definitely help people learn when we shift the design by focusing less on just the technical view and instead, considering the learner’s perspective. This webinar will present ideas on how to make this shift possible.

Topics to cover:

  • Kill the myth that technical and compliance elearning have to be boring
  • Persuade technical writers or experts to shift focus: from technical to learner’s view
  • Assess your program’s point of view to achieve a high impact response
  • Locate “context-driven content” – those that add usefulness to procedures, policies, software, guides, assistive tools, forms, statistics, legal and citations, etc.
  • Discover, focus and use “work around” content – troubleshooting, incidents, crisis, defects, rejects, returns, complains, etc.
  • Use techniques to engage learners: cases, scenarios, applications
  • Converttechno-geek and legalese language into understandable, digestible form for non-technical people
  • Demos and examples of engaging technical and compliance programs
  • To be received in advance:PRE-WEBINAR STUDY KIT, white papers, demos and examples
