    Join us for this webinar, sponsored by Altus, as we help connect you to the potential that video offers. We’ll show you how commonly available tools can be used to record training delivered in the field, in the classroom, using software or through whiteboards. Our speakers will share tips on getting started, help you engage content experts (as well as your learners) and show you how to make video part of your training initiatives.

    Successful Single-Source Content Development

    Today we are experiencing an explosive growth in mobile workforce applications coupled with continued heavy investment in eLearning.  Add to this the fact that most training is still delivered in an instructor-led environment leveraging print materials, while the technical publications department independently produces volumes of print-based content. Is it any wonder why single-source content development is rapidly becoming a strategic initiative within organizations?

    Join some of the industry’s top content management experts for a structured writing presentation that will show you how to design discrete, granular content for reusability across products, across functions, and across delivery modalities.  Take the first steps toward true reusability that leads to greater return on investment, faster time-to-market, and the ability to deliver dynamic content to your information customers.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn best practices for moving to a single-sourcing strategy and take away an assessment tool that will enable you to evaluate your organization’s readiness for such a move in these key areas:

                •     Leveraging XML for content reusability and future-proofing content
                •     Determining what content is reusable throughout the enterprise
                •     Structuring content for reuse and filtering
                •     Producing well written content objects that are consistent and appropriate  
                •     Repurposing existing content for print, online and mobile delivery
                •     Managing change within your organization

    This webinar is meant for those who need/want to implement a structured authoring approach to streamline development and increase content reusability.  The intended audience includes writers, training developers, instructional designers, editors, publications and training managers and anyone who writes for print, web, or mobile.

    Visual language for designers

    Visual language for designers - an hour with Connie Malamed.
    This is a free webinar from 

    E-learning depends heavily on visual design in order to engage learners, convey meaning and ensure retention. In her book, Visual Language for Designers, Connie Malamed spells out what is required to achieve these objectives. Connie's background is a mix between art and cognitive psychology, which explains why the book contains such an excellent summary of what we know about the brain and perception, attention and memory. It might also explain how Connie became involved in e-learning.
    In this session, run jointly with the Association for Learning Technology (ALT), Connie will summarise some of the key themes from the book and respond to questions from host Clive Shepherd and from participants.
    Connie consults, writes, and speaks in the fields of online learning, visual communication, and information design. She also publishes the popular blog, The eLearning Coach. With degrees in Instructional Design and Art Education, she energetically pursues ways to improve instructional and information graphics.
