TechKnowledge 2015 FR202
Michael Coates | January 16, 2015 | Video

English may be the language of global business, but everything changes when corporate goals require the provision of e-learning materials in alternate languages. The most forgotten secret of successful multilingual training and development is the need for a global language translation strategy. Are you training diverse audiences, such as non-English or second-language learners; expanding your corporate reach into new countries; providing e-learning resources in more than one language; experiencing delays and inconsistencies; and/or receiving complaints regarding previously translated training materials? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, this session is for you. Discover the foundational components of a successful global language translation strategy and will arm you with specific action items pertinent to your organization's learning objectives surrounding e-learning. Building upon their published whitepaper on the same subject, the speakers will share practical steps for implementation based on industry best practices and client success stories.

Media Competencies for Talent Professionals

TechKnowledge 2015 Session: W202
Jonathan Halls | January 14, 2015 | Video

Video is the new flipchart. No longer will the marker pen and flipchart pad be the primary medium that trainers use to aid learning. As talent professionals continue to expand their classroom beyond brick-and-mortar to smartphones, tablets, and desktops, their flipchart will become video and audio. The trainers who will be in demand in five years time will be talent professionals who have well-developed media competencies in the use of audio, video, online text, animation, and database content.   As media content for learning goes beyond novelty to fact of life, in-demand professionals will need to create content that is professional, engaging, focused, and linked to a learning objective or business need. So how do we get there? This session will explore the key skills learning professionals should start developing now to be competitive in a future where content creation skills are essential. It will look at competencies from broadcasting and newspapers that can be applied to a learning environment and how they work together with training skills so talent professionals can affordably and rapidly create high quality learning media. 

Common Sense for the E-Learning Designer

TechKnowledge 2015 Session: W300
Ethan Edwards | January 14, 2015 | Video

It seems that the shared perspective of learners and designers about e-learning is that much of it is not very good: it's boring, the interactions don't teach, the media is unhelpful, and so on. This is in spite of the fact that well-meaning designers are following long-established models and doing exactly what most authoring tools have made easy. When pushed, many designers know that what they are doing is flawed, but there's little guidance to do anything better. Many e-learning solutions are not complex or difficult to achieve—mainly what is needed is a focus on the essential aspects of learning that have been overlooked in the haste to rely on technology alone. In this session, you will learn 10 straightforward and powerful principles to guide e-learning design. The principles focus on issues of feedback, learner actions, usefulness of templates, motivation, risk, and content. Appropriate to any content and applicable to any authoring tool, these principles will empower designers to make concrete design changes that improve the impact of their e-learning courses.

Before and After: Making a Difference With Pre- and Post-Event Learning Activities

TechKnowledge 2015 Session: W206
Chris Van Wingerden | January 14, 2015 | Video

Have you ever tested spaghetti to see if it's cooked by throwing it against a wall? That's how too many organizations now approach their training programs—throwing standalone e-learning or face-to-face courses at their staff and hoping the learning will stick. But no course is an island, and there are things we can do to increase the odds of making learning stick by augmenting standalone courses. Pre- and post-event activities have been proven to make a dramatic difference in learning transfer rates. Many of these strategies are easy to implement and are very suited to m-learning approaches, giving us a whole new set of tools to improve the effectiveness of learning events. In this session we will provide an overview of what pre- and post-event learning transfer activities are, and review what the research tells us about their effectiveness. We'll also discuss strategies for including these in the planning and design of your learning programs, as well as focus on techniques to take advantage of mobile devices for delivering many of these activities.

Show Your Work: The Payoffs of Working Out Loud

TechKnowledge 2015 Session: W404
Jane Bozarth | January 14, 2015 | Video

Showing our work-also known as narrating work or working out loud-can solve many problems for organizations, from capturing tacit knowledge to easing transitions when workers depart, to further enabling informal and social learning. This comes not from documenting steps in a process, but by telling what we're doing, watching others do things, and showing others how we did something. In this session we'll explore dozens of real examples of showing work along with the tools and approaches that support it.
