Creating engaging learning requires learners to make a connection with content. This engagement is where learning happens. A great way to create engagement is through scenarios that learners will encounter in their job, life, etc. But these scenarios won’t be effective if they aren’t realistic. This session will look at some successful examples of scenario-based learning and how you can use the same principles in your own courses. We will also focus on how to leverage customer knowledge to make your scenarios realistic and relevant to learners. Finally, we will look at how to build out your scenarios. While we will be using Storyline in the session, the scenario concepts are applicable across all authoring tools.
Gamification is one of the hottest trends in learning and development. Is it just a buzzword or a trend as one leading expert argues, or does it offer richer, more interactive, and more effective ways to develop people? Decide for yourself after attending this session. Dr. Robert Becker will cover the why, when and how of gamification, focusing on the transformation of traditional or legacy courseware into more engaging game-based learning. You will not learn how to design video games in this session, but you will learn how to gamify your instructional design if the gamification of training is right for you.
In order for organizations to increase the effectiveness of their learning programs, they first have to benchmark the learning transfer and performance impact of each one. Many organizations have a number of implemented learning programs that have been in place for years, but sometimes have little-to-no evidence that they truly impact performance. The days of that scenario are numbered, as learning analytics and business impact metrics become more prevalent.
This session will include a case study showing how leveraging new learning models, including online simulations and game-based elearning, increased proficiency in critical soft skills/business skills over previously-implemented traditional learning programs.
Same skills, taught differently, resulted in improved performance.
Gamification, including “serious gaming” and “social gaming,” is an innovative enabler of today’s multigenerational workforce that is increasingly used to support learning.
Serious games and mobile learning are serious business today. What does a real-world serious game look like? How and why does it work? How are the games developed, delivered and played? What features are critical for learning success? And how do you get started?
IBM learning experts from three perspectives will walk you through real-world success stories and answer your questions about how your organization can harness the benefits available today from gamification and mobile learning.
The Tin Can API is having a massive impact on the way we deliver training and learning in our organizations. This session will talk about how organizations are rethinking the role and structure of learning systems to best capitalize on the capabilities of the Tin Can API.
Tin Can enables us to deliver and track learning in mobile devices, educational games, simulations and virtual worlds. Tin Can allows us to track informal learning and learning that happens outside the enterprise. It allows for learning data to move about freely and to be more tightly integrated with the larger enterprise.
These new capabilities have a dramatic impact on how we need to think about learning system design in the enterprise.
In an age when even games are “serious” and e-learning audiences increasingly face screens of text with Next buttons, the unexpected can become the unforgettable. Fun is good for learning because it stands out.
Studies show that fun actually promotes learning as elements of novelty evoke wonder and curiosity. It increases engagement and provides safe areas to learn from failure. It’s not fun for fun’s sake. It’s fun for learning’s sake.
In this presentation, see how a parrot and some gadgets increased compliance awareness, how a board game and leader board increased worldwide engagement and collaboration, and how a basketball app improve college preparedness.
This presentation, based on the experiences and "next practices" of hundreds of HR leaders and projects, will examine the five (5) critical issues that must be addressed in the critical first 100 days and beyond of HRIS project implementation.
This session will include a 100-day template to HRIS implementation excellence, and the strategic to tactical steps that must be taken to accelerate user alignment and adoption. The session will examine not only the technical aspects of launch, but also the fundamental behavioral aspects that must be considered.
Finally, the session will give several "next practice" case examples of users who successfully implemented HRIS projects in small to large scale environments.
Simulations have long been touted as an elearning best practice solution for learning engagement and effectiveness. But adoption and utilization rates have been slow, primarily due to a combination of real and perceived challenges related to cost and development timelines, as well as resistance to allowing employees to play “games” at work. Join us for an update on the current state of simulations in learning, and the trends and factors that are paving the way for actualization of the prediction that simulations and game-based learning will likely be the long-awaited “killer app” for elearning. The session concludes with an example of how the American Heart University blends both custom and off-the-shelf scenario-based simulations into their award-winning corporate learning programs.
Industry data and trends show that one out of every three organizations is looking at replacing its LMS. With greater importance being placed on learning, compliance, and analytics, organizations have begun to search for improved offerings to meet their needs. When the time comes and replacement is inevitable, the first step should not be product demonstrations, but rather the development of a replacement strategy. A little upfront work goes a long way towards a successful LMS replacement and implementation outcome. Join Jason Marceau, Chief Operations Officer from Meridian, as he outlines key elements of an effective replacement strategy, and key practices for successful replacement implementations.
Attend the ON24 session, “Virtual Training: Building a Global Training Strategy,” and to learn how to create virtual learning environments that can be customized to deliver an interactive and engaging learning experience. This webinar will also address how to move training beyond learning management systems to reach learners at their point of need, using blended methods that increase engagement and retention. This session will feature guidance on how to:
- Enhance and extend your learning management systems
- Increase the reach and effectiveness of your training programs
- Create virtual training centers that best serve the needs of the organization and the learners
- Extend the life of training sessions and content
