Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) July 25, 2014
Allen Interactions Inc., an internationally acclaimed custom learning design, development, strategic consulting, and technology firm, announces new webinar in conjunction with Training Magazine Network. The webinar, e-Learning, Are You Serious?, aims to shed light on the massed-produced, typically poor quality e-learning being created today. In it, Dr. Michael Allen will help e-learning professionals make a business case for developing better e-learning by showing them how to use the principles of the Serious eLearning Manifesto in their development.
In today’s demanding workplace, many e-learning professionals find themselves paying more attention to content-focused, tool-based designs rather than focusing on the learner, and improving overall performance. On Tuesday, August 5th, 1-3 pm Central, join Dr. Michael Allen, as he explains how the 22 principles of the Serious eLearning Manifesto can help combat today’s e-learning failures by creating learning solutions that generate business impact. Dr. Allen will explain how following the Principles of the Manifesto can help re-align training needs for greater budget impact – focusing on a company’s greatest asset, its employees.
“The e-learning experience can, and should, optimize use of the learner’s time, individualize the experience for full engagement, address needs, optimize practice, and prepare for transfer of learning to performance proficiency,” says Dr. Allen. “I’d like to demonstrate how the Principles of the Manifesto can act as a communication tool for leaders and designers within learning and development departments. The Principles can help project team members understand how a well-designed e-learning course can improve a company’s bottom line, resulting in performance change, and improving ROI."
