The benefits of collaboration are well known, and today the tools available to extend collaborative efforts across time and space (geography) are plentiful. However, merely having collaborative platforms doesn’t necessarily mean collaboration will happen.

This session will discuss successful, rapid learning design collaboration in a virtual remote work world. It will focus on roles, tools, and communication to leverage design capabilities to rapidly develop virtual learning aids and performance support. Examples of projects at various stages of development may be shared during this session (from storyboard to launch) to illustrate the process while discussing best practices. This session will explore collaborative instructional design in a virtual environment—specifically, how instructional design teams can work collaboratively while members are in geographically separate locations.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About various communication tools that are advantageous to remote teams
  • About best practices for remote collaboration
  • About pitfalls to be avoided during remote collaboration
  • Why clear delineation of tasks and roles is critical to project success
  • About the benefits of remote collaboration

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