October is an exciting month for learning professionals in the Midwest. Why? Two words: Trainer’s Institute. Trainer’s Institute is a yearly event offered by ASTD Nebraska. This event provides both new and experienced trainers with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of adult learning principles, improve presentation skills, and learn effective design and development skills. This year, Trainer’s Institute will consist of individual weekly sessions. Participants may purchase sessions individually or the entire session package for a special price.
Easel Solutions is very excited to be involved in Trainer’s Institute this year. Dustin Tauer will be facilitating the eLearning Principles session on October 26. This session will include an eLearning primer that will look at emerging trends in the eLearning landscape and provide an overview of different ways to effectively deliver and track eLearning. In the afternoon, participants will have the opportunity to get down and dirty with the Captivate 5.5 hands-on session. We’ll cover topics ranging from importing slides from PowerPoint, adding quiz questions, creating demonstrations and simulations and the difference between the two, adding interactive objects, and managing content in a Learning Management System.
Whether you attend our session or any of the other sessions at Trainer’s Institute, you are sure to walk away with valuable knowledge and skills as well as the opportunity to network with and learn from other learning professionals in the community. Hope to see you at this event. Enjoy the beautiful fall weather!
