Guest post by Kevin Siegel, Founder and President, IconLogic, Inc.

What is a Flipped Classroom and How Can It Help Me?

Child standing upside downFlipped Classroom (sometimes called flipped teaching) is an approach to education that blends both online instruction and offline learning. Generally in Flipped Classrooms the online learning is done with videos and quizzes offered offline and this gives the teacher more time to spend engaging directly with learners in activities and exercises during class.

It earned the name ‘Flipped’ because traditional in class activities (like lecture) are moved to homework time, and traditional homework activities, are moved to the class meeting time. The advantage of this Continue reading…

Creating and adding Custom Scenario Interactions in Adobe Presenter 9

Adobe Presenter Senario InteractionsScenarios and near-real stories add life to eLearning courses and make the content look and sound more meaningful. It also makes it easy for the students to understand concepts by looking at the examples and taking decisions in the scenario. They get a perfect simulated environment to practice the skills or modify behavior and the best part with scenario-based learning is that they are allowed to make mistakes and learn from them, without causing any harm whatsoever.

In spite of these benefits, you will find very few people creating scenario-based courses. Most of them rather settle for information-heavy eLearning courses. They confess that they understand the value of creating a scenario-based course, but they opt for a page-turner as it takes a lot of effort and time to design and build scenarios. So to lessen the burden for eLearning developers, we’ve introduced scenario templates in Adobe Presenter 9 which can be used to build decision points inside an eLearning course. It’s pretty easy to use these templates. Watch this short video to learn about the workflow: Continue reading…

Topic: Moving from Knowledge Hoarding to Knowledge Sharing with Adobe Presenter Video Creator

Date and time: Wednesday, 17th July, 2013 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM US/Pacific

Description: There is a fundamental problem that exists in the typical business workplace today. Chances are that you or someone in your office is already painfully aware of it. We’ve seen an explosion in the number of people whose jobs are directly related to their expertise, and for whom ‘what they know’ has become a kind of ‘insurance’ plan.

Have you ever heard a colleague proclaim “If I’m the only one who knows how to do this, ‘they’ can never fire me.”

We’ve all heard similar comments and perhaps even nodded along, or said the words ourselves. But what is the actual cost of this kind of environment of knowledge hoarding. Research in fact suggests that it cuts much deeper than just the upfront issues with bottle necks and heavy retraining costs. The most serious costs of a knowledge hoarding culture are that the institution is stifled when it comes to innovation.

In this session Dr. Allen Partridge will share research on Knowledge sharing and demonstrate how Adobe Presenter Video creator can close the technology gap and facilitate a knowledge sharing culture in your organization.
