116 B.Y.O.L.: Applying Video Curation and Interaction in Student-driven Bite-sized Learning

10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, September 30



Trends suggest that learners want to drive their own learning and have access to a variety of bite-sized materials in various media to learn what they want, when they want it. It’s not just the Millennials, and it is not because people have no attention span. It is because everything moves so quickly and we have become accustomed to making our own path ... quickly. Yet, corporate learning organizations are having trouble shifting fast enough.

In this session, you will get hands-on experience using tools in new, trending ways. You will learn tips and pitfalls to avoid so you deliver professional materials with limited resources. Learn how to maximize your development time and resources through video content creation combined with curation of other types of materials. See how to keep the attention and interest of students and focus on teaching the key aspects of a topic.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to curate existing content as part of a curated video content plan
  • How to design a way to utilize interactions, playlists, and previously developed course content
  • Techniques to shorten, revise, and refine content so that it is transitioned into bite-sized information for learners
  • To use familiar tools with new online applications to create a tailored content experience for your audience

Intermediate and advanced designers, developers, and managers.
