The Relationship Between
Distance Learning, CBT and EPSS - Common Checklists
Increasingly, trainers and managers are faced with needing
to become project leaders for a wide range of products to support continuous
learning within the workplace. Every technique, from distance learning workbooks and
computer-based or web-based training through online reference systems and performance
support tools, has its own design characteristics and best practice.
So how can you be sure that different forms of on-demand
multimedia and training materials will work together? How can you reuse existing content
as a component of new performance support tools, particularly if the content needs to be
chunked into smaller, context-sensitive pieces to be embedded in desktop
applications? How can you reduce the cost and time of translating the content from one
format to another, and retain the effectiveness of the messages?
This talk focuses on:
- Identifying the relationship between the design attributes
of various multimedia techniques
- Defining a checklist of common design and technical
attributes which will help to create more future-proof products
Along with presentation of examples, exercises (using
common toys and visual images appropriate to a diverse and even multi-lingual audience)
will illustrate common pitfalls and help attendees start to build a checklist which is
appropriate to their organization.
