Speaking at eLearning DEVCON 2011

Come join me - the conference is a real bargain with lots of great sessions -

Jun 15 10:20 am - 12:25 pm (2-hr BYOL session):  Creating Branching Scenarios
A scenario can put the course content into a context that is relevant to the learners because they can use the information in a real world setting. In this session, you will learn best practices for writing and creating branching or "soft-skills" scenarios. The presenter will demonstrate Rapid Development tools used to create scenarios, and attendees will use one of the tools to create your own branching scenario.

Jun 16 9:40 am - 11:50 am (2-hr BYOL session):  Adding Interactivity to Adobe Acrobat
In this session, Debbie will show you interesting ways to use Adobe Acrobat PDF interactive documents – either as a stand-alone eLearning element or as part of a course.  Attendees will create an interactive PDF and insert it into an e-learning course. The presenter will also lead a discussion on using PDFs for collaboration and commenting during the e-learning course development process.

Jun 17 9:45 am - 11:50 am (2-hr BYOL session):  HTML5 - What You Need To Know and Why You Should Care
HTML5, the new web markup language is supposed to eliminate the need for the Adobe Flash plugin. What does this mean for e-learning developers? Even though HTML5 is not fully supported in major browsers, there are those that are pushing forward and experimenting with its new features. In this session, we will create HTML5 pages and CSS3 styles. We’ll explore key features along with reasons for learning/using HTML 5 instead of Flash. Don’t be scared away from this session if you don’t know basic HTML and CSS – I’ll show you enough to be dangerous!
