Using elearning software to make in person presentations
Nov 29, 2012
My organization delivers a lot of trainings. One idea that my directors have latched onto is creating an online module about a topic (say, classroom management), and then using that module as part of an in-person training in addition to having it online as a resource.
Other than the obvious limitations I have in designing the course if it's going to be used for this dual purpose (it has to be more or less linear, interactivity is limited), we're finding that although a course may engage someone at a computer, or even a small group at a computer, it is not doing so for a larger training audience.
My gut has told me me from get go that we need a different format for presenting in person than online: that a module I design for an individual or small group in front of a computer can't effectively be used for a long period of time in front of a large audience. But I wonder if I might be missing something. Before I fight the latest round of revisions to try to salvage this idea, does anyone have any suggestions, any angle I'm missing?
