Good day everyone. I am trying to find out how best to design and deliver bite-sized IT training to about 500 staff with little or no IT skills. I work in the health and social care sector. As much as possible i want to avoid face to face delivery.
Hi Bole - we're doing a Ufi funded project delivering bite-sized skills training to care workers at the moment. We found that, despite limited IT skills, most of them have a smartphone, so we are delivering it to their phones. This also makes it more useful for them to use at the point of need.
That's really usefull. I like the idea of designing to people's phones. Please what tool did you use to design content for smartphones.
Oh, were you involved in writing the code?
That looks interesting Asi. Does it really tell people that they're a 'fool' - as per the homepage conversation? :-)
I will definitely check out Jolly Deck.
I'm with Tess on this one. In the days before smart phones were truly smart I delivered bite sized learned by delivering PDFs to phones (we were a phone company, so everyone's phones could open a pdf, even then). Does depend what you're trying to teach, though. Another solution I've used is converting a powerpoint to elearning with added voice over, using Adobe Captivate. It was really hard to find a solution that worked for all the different PC builds we had, but version 6 of Captivate did the job. It will also let you include demos of software being used, so may be handy for what you're trying to.
That's really useful. I like the idea of designing to phone. We currently use Articulate which doesn't really work well on mobile. I do know that Articulate have recently created Articulate 360 which has a product great for designing responsive elearning, but i don't like the idea of using a different add on product to create mobile able learning.
Thanks Asi, i do know about Adapt and think it's great. I just have not been able to install it. There is an event on the 31st of January which i have booked to attend. I hope to learn more about it.
