Effective use of the instructional systems design process is the number one foundational competency of a professional instructional designer. This workshop will lead you through hands-on experiences that will help you get started with instructional design. Issues addressed in the workshop will include:
• What is Instructional Systems Design?
• How is it different from what classroom teachers do when they create lessons?
• What is ADDIE?
• What does a complete instructional design project look like?
• Where do professional instructional designers work?
• Can you really do any topic with instructional design?
• How do you know whether an instructional design project was successful?
A recent laptop computer with wireless card is required for participation in this workshop.
Ron Braxley, University of Georgia College of Education – Quick Video Production for eLearning Projects
Video has become an important component of almost any eLearning
experience, so it’s important to do it well. This workshop will focus on using mobile equipment (the iPad in this case) to produce video, so please bring along your iPad, iPhone, or other mobile device.
While there are many editing options available, we will work with the iOS
version of iMovie during our workshop. A short video project will be produced collectively by the workshop participants.
Dan Richards, Interactive Advantage Corporation – Introduction to Articulate Storyline 360
Articulate Global has recently introduced their web-integrated version of Storyline software in a suite called Articulate 360 that includes an array of new collaborative tools as well as enhancements to Storyline, including implementation of Articulate’s new approach to responsive design. Expert eLearning designer and trainer Dan Richards will use this 3-hour workshop to walk you through the new capabilities of Storyline 360 itself, within the context of the Articulate 360 suite, via demonstration and hands-on activities.
You are not required to have Articulate Storyline software to participate in this workshop, but you may choose to bring it with you on a laptop computer if you have the software available (either Storyline 360 or the stand-alone Storyline 3). A trial copy will work just fine. Arrive at least 20 minutes early to load the class media files if you intend to participate hands on.
Stephen Balfour & Karah Hagins, UGA Office of Online Learning – Get Your Game On! Putting Gamified Learning to Work in Organizational Settings
Collaboration. Competition. Achievement. Engagement. Gamified learning can open new paths to learning, increase motivation, change perceptions of failure, and increase time on task. Stephen Balfour and Karah Hagins from UGA’s Office of Online Learning will provide an introduction to what it takes to gamify learning spaces. You will learn the prominent elements of gamification and how they can increase learning, explore techniques you can use, and play some educational games. You will leave with a rough plan for gamifying an activity or course of your own. Please bring your smart phones, tablets, and/or computers to take full advantage of this workshop!
