Heartland E-learning Conference - Resources

I'm in Oklahoma this week for the Heartland E-learning Conference. So far, it's been an amazing conference and a great opportunity to talk shop with current — and future — Articulate users.

I thought it could be useful to share some resources from yesterday's conversations for the benefit of others who might be interested in those topics. The topics centered around three common themes:

  1. Quizzing feedback
  2. Social Media in courses
  3. Academic elearning examples

Can I incorporate social media into my elearning courses?

It was no surprise that social media was one of the biggest topics at the conference. There were a lot of questions around integrating social media activities into online lectures, presentations and courses. The good news? Presenter '09's Web Objects makes that possible.

Here are some ways to combine social media with your elearning courses.

How can I provide feedback in Quizmaker?

Feedback is an essential component to the learning process, so it makes sense that it would be such a popular topic at this event. With Quizmaker, you can provide learners feedback based on their questions or answers. You can further customize the feedback with supporting graphics, audio recordings and even video.

How are schools using Articulate? Do you have any academic examples I can share with my department?

Yes! In fact, just a couple weeks ago, users shared academic examples of courses created in Articulate. Here are some highlights from the discussion.
