COURSE TOPICS
What are Learning Technologies?
Consider the levels of needs when it comes to learning technologies— organizational, job/task, and individual.
Human Elements Support Learning Technologies
One challenge when using learning technologies is that learners may feel disconnected. To overcome this challenge, human elements must be present.
Considering and Applying Learning Technologies
Focusing on the desired learning outcomes can help you choose learning technologies. Once you have decided which learning technologies will support your desired learning outcomes, it is time to consider specific tools.
Who Should Attend

New learning professionals or others who wish to include technology in their learning programs. This could include instructional designers or trainers, but also managers responsible for individuals’ learning or subject matter experts who have been asked to help others learn.

This may include trainers, facilitators, instructional designers, academic educators, community educators, consultants, coaches, and beyond.
