Illumen at the Chicago eLearning & Technology Showcase

cltsIllumen was thrilled to be back the the third annual Chicago eLearning & Technology Showcase. We both sponsored and presented this year, which gave us the opportunity to meet some great people. David Denz presented Blending Creativity and Technology to Optimize eLearning Delivery to a packed room. The summary for Dave’s presentation breaks down like this:

Learners are individuals with vastly different learning styles, preferences, and conditions. Through a careful blend of purposeful imagination and technology, educators can use e-learning to allow learners to customize their learning experience and optimize knowledge transfer. At the start of this session, participants will take a survey to identify their learning styles and preferences. Then Dave will use the survey results and interactive demonstrations to show how different learning styles manifest themselves in online learning. Dave will also explain which delivery approaches support which learning styles and how multiple delivery approaches can be incorporated into e-courses.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

• Explain how several creative approaches support different learning styles and how to efficiently and effectively build e-courses that incorporate multiple approaches
• Build a framework for developing and/or evaluating creative e-learning delivery concepts

We also had a great time at the Illumen booth and had many brilliant people wander by. It was great connecting with friends and meeting others in the business.
