Video-based learning is on the rise... and has been since the launch of YouTube in 2005. Mobile devices, apps, and social media, are some of the drivers behind this trend. It's a tech trend in businesses with cautiously curious executives wondering how to use it as a competitive advantage.
Transitioning from well-known and older practices into new is never easy. Especially when it involves modern technology with nearly guaranteed huge learning curves. In this episode of IDIODC, Becky Willis, an experienced learning strategist, joins Brent and Chris for an episode to discuss new L&D strategies - how they affect the instructional designer and how you can embrace them yourself!
Welcome to our second IDIODC episode of 2020! For this session, Brent and Chris are joined again by the ever so talented Kevin Thorn for an extra interactive session on creating icons for learning projects. Grab your thinking cap, a cup of coffee or tea (or whatever your drink of choice may be), and get ready for an insightful session with Kevin, Brent and Chris!
