210 Practical Uses of Intelligent Structured Content
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM Wednesday, October 29
Van Gogh 1
The volume of content in most organizations is getting to a point where manually curating content for various audiences is becoming overwhelming. Sifting through thousands of eLearning packages for relevance to a certain topic, role, or location can be a very time consuming task. The delivery may change, the style of content may change, the packaging and location of content may change, but the volume will continually expand making finding relevant content increasingly difficult for our audiences.
In this session you will learn how computers and systems can be used to curate content for our audiences. You will explore why allowing computers and systems to understand what content is about will allow those systems to filter content that is relevant to a user’s needs or relevant to the context of a user’s situation. You will discover how this will make the increasing volume of eLearning content more manageable. You will leave this session understanding how building intelligence into our content will allow the systems that deliver content to identify the context, understand it, and bring that contextually relevant material to our audience.
In this session, you will learn:
- What structured content and intelligent content means
- How to design intelligent content
- Practical uses for intelligent structured content
- Tools and development techniques for creating structured eLearning
- Practical advantages of using intelligent content
Intermediate and advanced designers, developers, and managers who are familiar with custom eLearning content development using both rapid authoring tools and custom code. Knowledge of LMS systems, learning record stores, and how computers interact with each would be beneficial.
