Part of my intructional design role, is to “create” training moments. These are my favourite moments btw. What I love is they don’t have to be complicated or be super time consuming. Simple is really best.

Just recently, I stumbled upon a PPT add-in called, Mentimeter. Basically, as part of your PPT, you can ask your audience a quick question and display their opinions. Its a great conversation starter

Download my Sample sample PPT I created and I used the Add-IN at the end of the presentation. (The info in the ppt is completely made up).

Follow the nine simple steps below to start creating learning moments in your training.

C’était mon premier cours Captivate. Je dois avouer que je suis fan. Le processus de travail est basé sur la connaissance et j’ai besoin de rechercher des astuces pour gagner du temps. C’est un excellent produit. J’ai hâte de commencer à l’utiliser pour réaliser des vidéos 360.

Adult Education is an exciting space to be in right now. There is engaging eLearning, gamification and the list goes on.

Admittedly, I love getting my hands dirty as an Instructional Designer. I like creating. Now with a few years experience, I recently looked at ADDIE (The 5 stages of building learning) and AGILE, the development process through collaboration  (my simplified definitions) and I wanted to share my little list of Best of both.

Image digital storytelling 1

I am not a scientist, nor a doctor, but I know there is something about storytelling that activates our minds. I am on a quest to learn all about digital storytelling and I thought a good place to start is here. With this blog. My own digital story, of sorts.

Storytelling and to be specific digital storytelling intrigues me. To me it means using a mix of media, including graphics, photos, sounds and video to convey a message.

I am a training designer. With every project no matter a job aid or video, there is always a story. A point. A message that must be conveyed, not only through the words, but visually as well. Finding this story is part of the adventure.

As my quest to gather, group and visually display information about Digital Storytelling, I used this and created my first online course. I sourced a variety of training platforms like Udemy, which I love. But, this time, I landed on thinkific.com. An excellent platform to create online courses. And to boot, they are Canadian.  Below is a link to the course, its just a sample of an 8 hour course.

Going through this exercise really put my curriculum development hat on.  I created a mind map to get started and created content for each step of a learners journey.

While I still have yet so much to learn about digital storytelling and how it activates our minds, I hope through every project to learn a little bit more.

Check out my first online course below; I created using thinkific.com.
