Articulate Conference May 12 - who we are & why we'll be in Leeds
In parallel to this super funky thread started by Sam, I thought I'd start one for the conference participants to get to know each other better before we all meet up in Leeds on the 24th of May. I'm also going to post anonymised questions for everyone to think about, as well as updates on the conference. So far what we know is that we're full and that we'wishing a very safe and fun journey to Tom, Don, and everyone else travelling to sunny England, or more specifically to London in the first instance and/or Leeds afterwards :)
I am also going to start the list of introductions in my next post on this thread (if folks don't mind introducing themselves to others - it will definitely help get the day to a lively start; although there will be Danish pastries, too, I am assured ).
Until then, this is what folks would like from the day so far:
- Download Tom's brain (Matrix style or otherwise, I guess - the person asking hasn't expressed a preference)
- Win a Storyline license :) (I'll surely be using a hat-drawing application again :))
- As enthusiasts starting out, quite a few people are looking for practical tips they can put into practice
- Be inspired through creative examples
- Find out the extent to which designers take account of learning theories such as attentional theory or learning styles when designing resources for impact
- Network / Talk about / See what is available in the Health sector in terms of e-learning development with Articulate or otherwise.
- Network / Talk about / See what is available in the Client Delivery Services sector in terms of e-learning development with Articulate or otherwise.
- Ideas on how to get started efficiently in an institution - licensing and costs, discounts.
- Get as many tips on addressing accessibility issues with both Articulate Studio and Storyline
- See a lot of Articulate Studio 09 funkiness and be surprised by new ideas
- Get tips on how to use quizzes to assess learning
- Talk about plans for the Articulate Studio update - how will it be positioned now that Storyline is (almost) here?
- Tips on designing for tablet use
- See how Storyline can be used to create effective resources without dazzling the user with the multitude of possibilities Storyline functionalities open up
The programme is almost there - I will update it with the presenters' details and topics (and may I just say a big thank you to the presenters for volunteering to share their work with us) and will circulate (fingers crossed nothing happens in the meantime.
Until then, let's introduce ourselves and make some friends before the Leeds Articulate extravaganza next month :)
