Upcoming Webinar: Creating e-Learning That Makes a Difference

Creating Effective e-Learning

Wednesday, June 20, 1:00 - 2:00 pm, Central
Presented by: Ethan Edwards, chief instructional strategist 

About This Webinar:

People often tout interactivity as the great benefit offered by e-learning, yet most interactivity does nothing to either engage or instruct. In fact, most often it only places a barrier between the learner and the content by making the learner experience tedious, unnecessarily cumbersome, and adversarial. Interactivity must be more than testing and simplistic actions.

Attendees will learn the concept of instructional interactivity, and see how it can transform the learning experience for learners working independently through an e-learning program. You’ll get specific real-world examples that give meaning to the four essential components of instructional interactivity: Context, Challenge, Activity, and Feedback.

Learn how good e-learning is far less a function of the specific tools used, than it is of the creative design of these four elements. This webinar will give you a concrete structure on which you can design e-learning that makes a difference, no matter the depth of content, complexity, or simplicity of the authoring tools.

In this webinar, you will learn:
• the value of true instructional interactivity for creating engaging, effective e-learning
• to design engaging contexts, motivating challenges, appropriate activities, and instructional feedback into interactive design
• the critical elements of any authoring tool to use to create instructional interactivity
• to create learner-centered designs to maximize motivation and meaning in e-learning
