    We welcome everyone to join our new pilot offering: Communities in Practice (CIP). The CIP is where we embark together on a quest to gain and strengthen our professional skills. Each quest focuses on a specific topic and includes three stages: Learn, Practice, and Grow. In the first stage, you’ll learn new methodologies, concepts, tools, and/or skills from a subject matter expert. In the second stage, you’ll create a project, practicing what you’ve just learned either in a group or individually. By the last stage, you’ll share your project to demonstrate how much you’ve grown.

    For this CIP quest, we’re focusing on storyboarding. Storyboarding is an essential planning tool for content development, including for e-learning and video production. Joining us will be instructional design expert Megan Gesing, who will help us focus on three main questions: 

    • What is storyboarding?

    • Why should you storyboard your course? 

    • How do you storyboard?


    Target Audience: 

    • Instructional Designers (new or existing)

    • Content / E-learning Developers


    Cost:

    We are offering this pilot free of charge. And future CIP “quests” will be included with Chapter membership. We hope you can take advantage of this benefit.


    Please register for all three dates in this series: 

    • Learn: Wednesday, October 13th 4:30-6:00pm 
    • Practice: Wednesday, November 10th 5:00 - 6:00pm
    • Grow: Wednesday, December 8th 5:00 - 7:00pm

        Amateur software training abounds on YouTube, but effective training requires much more than a screen capture tool. These days, learners expect a high degree of polish--are you prepared to deliver it? 

        Software expert and national speaker Kevin Siegel will lead us through his proven methods for creating engaging software training with the perfect balance of visuals and audio to maximize learning. 

        In this high-octane, hands-on class, you'll learn the process of writing and testing two critical software training documents: a step-by-step recording script and a voiceover script. You’ll get practice writing your script, and by the end of class, you'll put it all together in your eLearning tool of choice. (Bring Captivate, Storyline, or Camtasia to class... we've seen and have expertise in all of them!)

        Take your software training skills to the next level! You and your learners will value the results.

        Special Instructions:

        • Registration open until October 30

        • Class will be online through the GoToTraining platform

        • Recommended but not required: eLearning development tool of your choice (such as Captivate, Storyline, or Camtasia)

He has written more than 100 step-by-step computer training books, including titles for Adobe Captivate and Articulate Storyline. His popular “bootcamp” classes for all the major eLearning tools have helped hundreds jumpstart their learning using his entertaining and hands-on approach.
