eSeminar Now Available On Demand: Making Effective Adobe Captivate eLearning Modules

We had a huge crowd for yesterday’s eSeminar, which is the first in a series aimed at helping clarify the role of multimedia design & cognitive learning theory in eLearning module design and development. As usual I’ve posted the Slide deck online with the embedded notes for those who like to read it rather than hear it. You can of course also follow the link to go directly to the fifty minute session recording.

Yesterday’s session focused on a meta-level restructuring of Clark, Mayer et. al, principles of multimedia eLearning – specifically via evidence from educational psychology. It was hosted by Dr. Allen Partridge, Adobe eLearning Evangelist and was intended for all users of Adobe Captivate, eLearning Professionals, Academics, and Training Professionals. This session provided a foundation in multimedia design concepts for eLearning, and should help you understand the reasons / rationale behind many of the eLearning strategies you see implemented today.

This was the first of a lengthy series which are designed to help explain why module design is the way it is in much of today’s eLearning design, and as we move forward into the many additional sessions that are related to this one, I’ll be demonstrating how those theories lead to end products with practical examples that stretch the ideas all the way out to individual tools and techniques.

Upcoming:

Oct 20 – Balancing cognitive load in eLearning content with Adobe Captivate 5

Oct 27 – Applying Personalization to eLearning with Adobe Captivate 5

November 10 – Creating effective eLearning :Multimedia Principle with Adobe Captivate 5

At the end of the session there were loads of questions about some of the theorists and researchers discussed and where to do more reading. Here’s a brief list of recommended supplemental reading:

Clark & Mayer (2007.) eLearning: and the Science of Instruction http://amzn.to/chkPuw (Links to Amazon – but this book is pretty widely available.)

A short but clear overview of the history of learning theory.

Hi Allen Thanks for sharing! Not sure whether it's a universal problem but there are 2 voices in the recording.

Check that you don't have two windows open. Also - if you are using Firefox try another browser. LMK if it fixes it - Connect team would be very interested to know if there is still a FF issue. -Allen

Hi Allen Opened the recording in IE and it worked fine. Think the FF issue may still be present!

Hi Allen, Thanks for a great seminar wednesday. I find myself looking for a captivate E-learning example, exemplifying the things you said aswell as demonstrating the potential of Captivate. I have some co-workers who needs to see what it really CAN do, and not the level I have reached so far. Regards, Johan Hansen, Denmark

I'm interested in the recording and slide deck for October 20 webinar as well. I was logged into the webinar that day but lost audio after about 20 minutes, so I'm on the edge of my seat to find out how it all ended...

Re the Oct. 20 session: There was a server malfunction in Connect which caused audio to fail for everyone at about 20 minutes in. It also broke the recording. I'm planning to re-record tonight and will post the new version as soon as i finish. I believe the audio problem is now resolved. Thanks to all who attended, and thanks for your patience with this technical problem.
