Tracy Parish, Education Technology Specialist, curates and maintains an excellent list of e-learning tools. The tools range from Accessibility to xAPI tools. I have used this list frequently throughout my career and want to not only say thank you, but to pass this gem along to others. Check it out!
Inspired by Cara North and PACT Career Enhancement VP, Stacy Salinas, I would like to share upcoming Learning Opportunities for L&D. Over the course of my career, I have benefitted from free webinars, free ebooks and other resources. Check out this resource!
Limestone Learning publishes a blog that curates free L&D webinars. There are a wide variety of topics to choose from.
Which free webinars or books do you subscribe to? Let me know!
Mood Board (n): an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc., intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept.
This week, I am playing with mood boards this week to understand the tools, process and capture an aesthetic for future designs. After attending the UX Design presentation from Mel Milloway, I decided to try it to better understand the process and to capture some of the amazing experience that I am seeing online and in some of the interactions. Hopefully this will jump start creativity.
I am using Adobe Spark this week and testing the features of the free tool. My first uses appears that it is similar to Canva. It has the option of creating a short video with stock music. From some of the other mood boards that I’ve seen, Pinterest is definitely a good start and place for the inspiration…but I would like to try to keep a board for professional/play use.
Do you mood board? If so, what tools do you use to “capture the mood” and creative sparks?
This round of creating role-based onboarding/inboarding training, I am employing a few new-to-me techniques to think creatively and involve my end user in the process. In 1 week, several end users will arrive at my office to go through a day-long needs analysis session. I will be using design thinking techniques to facilitate the day. I am particularly excited about my “ideate” session where we will use a combination of SCAMMPERR, Brainswarming and mind-mapping to generate ideas about how the future training should look. As I am designing this…I am secretly hoping we will come up with this solution: Star Wars Onboarding Training!
