Adobe Flash® has two distinct user groups: the hardcore programmer/developer and the creative designers. As an e-learning or instructional designer, where does that place you?
Rapid e-learning software relies on Flash and Flash elements to add interactivity, but most high-quality e-learning courses are built entirely in Flash. Where do you begin learning? Most books and learning sites target either the programmer or the creative designer, but as an e-learning designer, where can you go? If you can relate to these questions then this three-session online workshop is for you.
At the start of each session, you will receive sample coding and graphics via URL download. This workshop takes place in the Flash environment instead of being PowerPoint driven.
New technologies and advances in the design of e-learning specific software have made it easier than ever to create engaging projects and programs in the field of learning. While these tools have made the development of e-learning programs easier, the true test of any project is the interactivity between the learner and the program. Complex simulations, detailed scenarios, and realistic, human-like interactions are difficult to pull off using “rapid development” tools. A more advanced tool is required to take e-learning to the next level. That tool has been and continues to be Adobe Flash.
You will leave this workshop with an understanding of Flash’s place in the toolbox of the e-learning developer. You’ll know how Flash projects can be the foundation for the entire project, or tuck nicely into the rapid development environment.
By the end of this program, you will be able to:
The key features an e-learning designer needs to understand basic drawing and animation fundamentals.
The key code components of ActionScript that e-learning designers need to be able to use for their projects.
How do experienced designers combine their knowledge of Flash with their desire to create interactive e-learning? This session walks participants through an entire e-learning shell from start to finish.

Essentials of Adult Learning
Today’s learners and workplace learning environment are vastly different than they were in the last century, when Adult Learning Theory became a science unto itself. How do we accommodate the adult learner’s need to work collaboratively when we have globally dispersed workforces? How do we allow for observation and reflection when our training time is cut from four-hours to two-hours? How do we teach critical thinking skills to learners who are used to getting their information in 140 characters? In this series, you’ll get answers to today’s burning questions as well as a thorough grounding in the adult learning principles that underlies the work we do with adult learners in the workplace.
