Captivating with SMEs

 

Primary Presenter: David Sprouse

Organization: University of Colorado Boulder

Role: Learning Analyst/Instructional Designer

Track: Technology Round-Up

Level: Cutting Edge

 

Abstract: One of the most frustrating challenges an instructional designer faces is obtaining and distilling information from the subject matter expert in an efficient manner. Including simulations of software applications, in a way that ensures that the instructional message is not abandoned, complicates this challenge. Using Adobe Captivate to engage the SME, this session presents a strategy to improve production time and instructional content quality of simulations that will be incorporated into an online course.

 

Bio: David Sprouse specializes in eLearning design and optimization for the Department of Employee Learning and Development in the President’s Office at the University of Colorado. His expertise includes the development of tools and the implementation of processes to make course development more efficient. He holds his Master of Arts degree in Information Learning Technologies from the University of Colorado Denver and a Bachelor of Science degree in Integrated Computer Technologies from Metropolitan State College of Denver.

 

Description: Of the many challenges that instructional designers face, one of the most frustrating can be obtaining and distilling information from the subject matter expert (SME) in an efficient manner. This situation becomes more complex when designers must develop online courses, which include simulations of software applications, in a way that ensures that the instructional message is not abandoned for the sake of “rapid development.” This session will present a strategy that engages the SME, as part of the development process, to improve production time and instructional content quality when using Adobe Captivate to create simulations as part of an online course. Topics covered will include establishing methodologies that engage the SME in the development process; producing accurate, succinct, and relevant content for an online course; creating Captivate templates for use by the SME; and identifying some best practices for Captivate projects. The developer will share lessons learned with the audience and provide a forum for audience discussion on the effective and innovative uses of Adobe Captivate CS5.5.
