We have all experienced huge courses, documents, and texts that are barely manageable by the instructional designer. In fact, much of how we design courses and documents makes it impossible for an employee to find the one piece of information they need at the time they need it. Since content is so dense, it makes finding meaningful information difficult, and it makes tracking anything useful in it even more difficult.

In this session you will explore the big picture of what technology is capable of today. You will dive into practices that will extend the lifespan and reduce the headache of how we create and manage content. You will learn tips on how to create content that is easier to track, can be used in many different areas (including mobile), and helps to populate more meaningful reports, both for management and the designers. You will discuss the value that content management systems and learning record stores play in forward-looking technology infrastructures.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How today’s technologies make creating content easier and more effective for designers
  • How today’s technologies make accessing content easier and more effective for workers
  • How you need to structure content so that it works on all devices
  • Why the LMS alone isn’t the backbone of your technology infrastructure

Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.     

Technology discussed in this session:
LMS, CMS, LRS, the xAPI.
