If you’ve ever wanted to learn to build more visual and engaging e-learning courses, here are two great opportunities to learn more about e-learning design.

Wednesday, May 26: I’ll be presenting at the E-learning Council’s annual symposium.  My presentation is on “Practical Techniques for Designing  Better E-learning.”  After the session, I’ll be hanging around and available to answer your questions. Swing by my speaker table and say “hi (or howdy partner).”

Thursday, May 27: I decided that since I’m in town, I’ll hold a free Articulate Jam Session. This casual and informal event is open to anyone who wants to learn to create more engaging e-learning with Articulate.

I’ll share some tips from a course I recently built and will answer any of your Articulate e-learning questions. So swing by.

Where is it?

The Texas Department of Transportation generously offered up some meeting space. Our event will take place downtown at the following location:

Texas Department of Transportation
200 E. Riverside Drive
Austin, TX 78704

texas-dot

Texas DOT | 200 E. Riverside Drive | Austin, TX 78704

Sign in with the security guard and tell them you’re attending the Articulate Workshop in Classroom “E” on the first floor.  Space is limited to about 30 people, so it’s first come, first serve.

Schedule of Events

Again, this is an informal, user-group type meeting. Think of it more like an open house. I’ll share some tips and tricks for getting the most from Articulate’s e-learning tools.

You’re encouraged to bring your own files, projects and questions to the sessions and we’ll work them out together.

10am – 12:00pm: I’ll present an example of how I converted a basic bullet point course into something more engaging. We’ll look at some before and after examples and show some practical ways you can quickly convert your PowerPoint-based e-learning.

1pm-3:30pm: I’m available to answer your questions and show you some quick tips & tricks. If you want to bring your projects, we can look at them together.

Hi, This sounds like interesting information and I’m definitely interested, but I live quite a ways away. Will you publish any if this information here or is there something already like this?
Thanks,
Wes

Hi Wes – I’m sorry you can’t make it!

We’re going with some existing demo and tutorials already available in places here on WOM blog, community forums and Tom’s REL blog. There will be some new content not yet available. This is mostly so we can try out some techniques with live users.

A good recap of our ASTD Jam Session will come out later this week. It will have some of the lessons I’m sharing this week in Austin.
