In the corporate atmosphere, there seems to be a general fear of the shift from traditional classroom training to eLearning. As training budgets are slashed, many traditional classroom trainers are increasingly fearful of losing their jobs with the shift. This session, coming from one who has made the shift, will give a real example to show it can be done.

Participants in this session will first learn the similarities in both processes: designing for classroom as well as eLearning. You’ll get examples showing that the shift is not an all-or-nothing approach, and that most companies are actually shifting to a blended program. Lastly, you’ll learn ways to gain practical skills to “fill in” possible gaps in your current skill sets to ease the transition from classroom to eLearning.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The similarities in approaching classroom design and eLearning.
  • The characteristics of Blended Learning and its advantages.
  • How to embrace change and begin to think about blended learning as a friend!
  • Practical and easily gained skills that will help the shift from classroom to eLearning to go easier.

Audience: Novice. All are welcome, but former classroom instructors, or anyone designing training for a classroom audience, is likely to get the most from this session.
