Dear CEdMA member,

The early spring CEdMA Europe half-day Workshop will take place on Thu 17 March 1300-1700 UK time at SAP Bedfont.

e-Learning: disruptive or disrupted? - Glynn Jung, Consultant, The e-Learning Centre
Let’s explore the commercial use of Technology-enabled learning in the UK. Drawing on research in 2010 on behalf of The e-Learning Centre as well as anecdotal evidence from discussions with industry leaders, Glynn will offer an interpretation of the trends in business models, technologies and design approaches. We’ll examine the opportunities and threats to the training industry as a whole from disruptive technologies (for example,  Open Source, Open Content and rapid development). We shall also look at how the need for speed is changing the role and nature of e-Learning.

Real Life, Real Time: Experiential Learning at the Speed of Business -
Tim Preston, Toolwire
The capacity to deliver training programs that are both REAL LIFE and REAL TIME presents an unprecedented chance for forward thinking businesses to extend their programs, better engage their learners, and improve their operational efficiency and effectiveness.  In this workshop session, learn how organisations are providing learners with “virtual internships” through Toolwire’s award-winning experiential learning environments.

Using Adobe Connect and Presenter to deliver new product training to a world-wide team - Adrian Shepard, Avid Technology
Adrian will take you through the tools and processes he uses to roll out New Product training to Avid Staff spread around the globe. There are several challenges involved in creating New Product training such as the timing, availability of SME’s and distribution of audience. Through trial and error he has come up with a method using Adobe Connect and Presenter that works well. He will look at preparing a webinar event in Adobe Connect, working with Adobe Presenter to generate content, running the webinar and finally generating a report of attendance.
