Training and Technology SIG

This SIG is devoted to eLearning and mLearning solutions that utilize technology that impacts the the talent development industry. The Training and Technology SIG intends to provide both opportunity to:

  • learn about the technologies that drive both eLearning and mLearning
  • share among peers the lessons learned for eLearning implementation

Our Goal

By the end of the year, each participant will have created a training module that can represent our skills as an eLearning instructional designer.

Our Plan

  • Meet over the web to address eLearning topics
  • Work throughout the year on an eLearning project
  • Meet once a quarter to review project work, troubleshoot, and tackle the thorny issues
  • Work on a project from actual clients

Our Authorware

To meet our current client's needs, the conversations that we're having will focus on using Adobe Captivate.  That said, we frequently draw parallels to Storyline, and the techniques we apply can be re-engineered in other systems.

    • Selecting the Right Authorware
      In the Training and Technology SIG's June session, we determined that all things being equal, authorware selection can be based on personal preference. Something you can accomplish in Captivate you can most likely accomplish in Storyline, and vice versa. But it's very seldom that all things are equal, so we consider the following: Learn more.
