LS409 Converting ILT into an Interactive and Engaging Online Session

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Wednesday, March 16

Virtual Classroom

International North

Taking a hands-on technology class and providing it online can be tough. How do you keep the interactivity of the course? How do you transform the exercises? How do you make the lecture parts engaging enough? When an online session can match the effectiveness of its ILT counterpart, you can reach more learners, lower travel costs, and even generate revenue.

In this session, you will learn about the creation of a certification path that included pre-class videos, a three-day instructor-led boot camp class, a concepts test, and a certification exam. You will see the path taken to transform the three-day instructor-led class into an interactive online session. You will learn about the software used and how to convert the hands-on exercises and case studies, as well as the techniques used to keep the learner involved and engaged.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Techniques you can use to maintain the instructiveness of the classroom online
  • How to use advanced actions in Adobe Captivate 8 to ask questions of the learners
  • The features of GoAnimate and how it can help make lecture parts more engaging
  • How to convert hands-on exercises and case studies

Novice and intermediate designers and developers.

Technology discussed in this session:
Adobe Captivate 8, GoAnimate, and Snagit.
