How to do eLearning Project management

10:30 PM - 11:20 PM
By Lou Russell

"When you improve your capacity to manage projects, you affect a large part of your life. Our goal for you as you move through your projects has two parts: 1. That you realize how much of your time is actually spent on project management, both at work and at home. 2. That you learn simple, useful ways to improve your project management velocity. There are many different ways to put a project together and you will have many choices. Certified Project Managers running large organizational projects at global companies will need more time, scope and staff than you may need. Many of us in Learning and Development need a complementary but simpler approach. Each of us struggles with our own constraints and novices try to ignore changes, hoping they’ll go away. You will embrace the changes and work through them. Each project is unique, and each project comes with different problems, but a good project manager learns to expect the unexpected. Starting well with a simple Project Charter will help you greatly. Project Management is primarily about relationships and communication, and no tools alone can finish a project. Projects succeed or fail because of people. "

How to Create Performance-Based Learning Objectives

12:30 AM - 01:20 AM
By Sarah Mercier

"Description: Creating learning objectives are often the most tedious and frustrating part of the instructional design process. Perhaps you have experienced one of the following in your career: “I work in an organization that requires us to write learning objectives based on a list of pre-established course topics.” “My company makes us put our learning objectives on the second slide of every eLearning course.” “We have to pick from a specific list of verbs to use in our learning objectives, and I have a really hard time figuring out what to use.” “Someone on my team starts every objective with the word ‘understand’ and it drives me crazy.” Do any of these quotes sound familiar? If so, this is the session for you. We will discuss why we need learning objectives, better approaches to writing them, and how to use them in your instructional design process. We will also refer to evidence-based research to inform what common learning objective practices should be avoided. "
