 ASTDps: February 2012 Chapter Meeting

Reusable eLearning Interfaces: It’s Not Just User Interface Anymore

Join ASTDps for a mixed media presentation!  Dr. Michael Allen, Chairman and CEO of Allen Interactions will join us live via the world wide web while Steve Lee, Co-Founder and Strategic Relationship Manager of Allen Interactions will be in person at this engaging chapter meeting.

Successful learning experiences connect with learners, whether these experiences use eLearning technology for delivery or not.  Learn about letting the CEO (Connect, Empower, and Orchestrate) take charge. Empower learners to explore, experiment, react, and orchestrate the learning environment to provide critical feedback, help, and guidance. Find out how you can incorporate the CEO principles of interface design and about the critical difference between user interface design and learner interface design (LID).

During this presentation you will examine LID using the structural foundation of interactive learning experiences: context, challenge, activity, and feedback, as well as discover how a successfully designed LID can lead to powerful, reusable learning objects.
