LIVE BLOG - Craig Weiss 'eLearning 2020' Seminar
Live updates throughout the day from Craig Weiss' 'eLearning 2020' Seminar at The Kia Oval. The End! eLearning Age's Clive Snell wrapping up the day - "Craig, fantastic input, fantastic views, we love the controversy and we hope to you again very soon!" Breakout discussions Round Up: LMS Personalisation of learning experience - ties in with chunking nicely. Relevance of gamification for adults Offline access LMS has meant eLearning management system traditionally - now to manage all learning across organisation. Need to create and manage all that content. Need data/analytics and measuring against objectives. Tin Can - most customers don't know what it is. Has some short and long-term benefits including enabling use of content across multiple platforms much easier. Can access content offline via download from Storyline app even if LMS doesn't have offline functionality. How important is offline access of content? Important depending on needs right now. Wifi becoming more ubiquitous and 4G evolving and probably won't be a problem in 5yrs time in UK. Apps may then become more about UX than providing an offline alternative. But data is expensive? Online/offline becomes more important when delivering content to a wide (worldwide) audience as data/wifi access not common across all. 'Amazon-style' recommendations - think going to see more of that. *For more information see notes from Breakout 1 below Mobile learning : Myths and Reality People are still dabbling. Working with App Store - do you want to go down app route? Do you want put eLEarning inside and app? Or just track CPD? Devices - is it just tablet and PC we're trying to direct people through to. Is iPhone screen too small for eLeraning? Chunking - common consensus is ideal for mobile. If want to do something with 30 slides is that really going to work on a phone? User experience - gestures, do you have to write content specific to platform or cross-platform? Mobile right now is open-ended discussion. TinCan - is it the answer? But v early days. Is anyone prepared to stick head of block and put everything into it. Learning towards cross-platform app - all about Android / Apple and some IE8. Blackberry sorry! iPads/tablets coming into schools and replacing computers which spells where market's going. New authoring tools and why? Challenges:
- consistency across building multiple courses across tools.
- Engaging across no of titles.
- Consistent flow in messages across course.
- Language option diagnotics
- Toolbox of tools depending on output required - no product out there that has toolbox yet.
