Adobe eSeminar now on demand: Louder, Faster, Funnier: Humor & Learning

Dozens gathered this morning to join my weekly eSeminar and share a laugh as we discussed the use of humor in online learning. You can check out the PowerPoint deck below, or enjoy the on Demand recording of the session here: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/event/index.cfm?event=register_no_session&id=2145820&loc=en_us

Funny is Money! At least that’s the perspective of many in the entertainment industry, but is comedy a viable tool in educational content, specifically within eLearning? What issues are introduced when eLearning modules depend on humor and what kinds of humor are most and least effective? Join Dr. Allen Partridge for a tongue in cheek examination of laughter and learning. We’ll explore the latest ideas & research on humor in learning and look for special applications and exceptions that apply to online learning. You’ll probably laugh, and you might even learn something.

    Good job, Doc! Methink it would’ve been better if shorter. Use of Humor Case: Last year I created a nearly 4-hour long elearning program on customer service for a large government agency. To lighten up the 14-module course, I interspersed it with commercial yet contextual cartoons. The result was universally appreciated by the trainees, and some would point out their favorite ones when I visited them during the rollout. It was so well received that I’ll be judiciously adding more humor more often.

  • Really great work.
