eLearnz eLab 2019

Trends move so quickly in this digital age.  L&D Professionals must keep up-to-date and informed with the latest technology, trends and techniques or risk being left behind.  eLab’s hands-on workshops allow you to get out of the office and take time to play with new tech and learn low cost and free tools to help create engaging elearning.  eLab has been a runaway success over the last two years and we are looking forward to hosting it again this year.

The format

eLearnz eLab is 2 days of 6 hands-on mini workshops, with the focus on the latest in digital learning trends, technology and design.  You will work with thought leaders during these sessions where you will actively create digital learning.  You will go away with up-to-date training methods that you can put into practice immediately back at your organisation and pass along to your team.

Articulate Storyline – xAPI linked to LRS and reporting back to an LMS

Articulate storyline is the industry’s favourite software for creating interactive courses and it’s always the most popular session of eLab.  It’s simple enough for beginners, yet powerful enough for experts. And it lets you create virtually any interaction you can imagine, in minutes.

Pick a Path is back and better than ever!  Create an interactive branching scenario using Twine, presented by Marion Littin, Learning Designer, Bloom Learning Technologies

Research shows that storytelling is a powerful instructional strategy. Twine enables users to quickly create microlearning content via branched stories.

In this session, you will learn how to use simple code to create branched stories. You will then learn to add images and other elements to your story. Twine is not cloud-based, the entire project is stored in your browser cache, so you will learn how to save and share your work. Anything you create with Twine is completely free to use any way you like, including for commercial purposes (Twine is open source and therefore a free tool).

It is strongly recommended that you use Chrome or Firefox browsers.

Become a Game Designer!  Create your own multimedia assets in an easy and intuitive way, presented by Marion Littin, Learning Designer, Bloom Learning Technologies

Teaching content via a game is a great way to keep learning fun. With ITY studio it’s easy to create engaging learning experiences with 2D and 3D simulations.

This session focuses on building animated games with interactive maps.

You will learn to Integrate maps with clickable boxes in your simulations, resulting in several possible scenes within your module. You will also build a rich and diversified tree structure very simply, for a genuinely interactive training experience. At the end of the session, you will be able to export your game and use it in your own LMS.

Build a microsite for those who don’t have an LMS

So you don’t have an LMS?  Not a problem, making a micro site can function the same way, including hosting your SCORM modules.

No More Boring Quizzes! Create attractive quizzes and surveys with Typeform, presented by Marion Littin, Learning Designer, Bloom Learning Technologies

Collecting quality information – whether it be assessment or collecting feedback – can prove challenging, with low or slow response rates. Typeform uses a conversational approach to engage and motivate learners, making the whole experience more enjoyable and easier to complete.

This session focuses on using Typeform to create assessment quizzes.

You will learn how to modify a template to create a quick quiz, then how to create your own from scratch. We will share our quizzes with each other (bring some cool questions!) in order to generate response data. You will then learn how to capture and report on that data. We will be using Typeform’s free version.

Docebo – The LMS you will love to use.
