Presentation 1: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Three (Anonymous) Client Examples of when we were FAB; one, NOT SO MUCH and one when they HATED us and the lessons learned.

Your Presenter: Paul Butler

Synopsis: Paul Butler of Newleaf Training and Development will share three anonymous examples of work his company has completed, since they commenced business 12 years ago. He’ll openly share with the group the lessons his company learned about work they’ve done well; work they did that wasn’t received so well and even work they’ve completed where his company and their client were unsatisfied. Paul will facilitate a dialogue around the good, the bad and the ugly encouraging participants to share their examples too, for common themes and corrective action moving forward.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be reminded of common-sense best practices to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction

  • Participants will be able to learn from the examples provided how to avoid common pitfalls for unsatisfactory work assignments

  • Participants will see how technology is changing the learning and development industry and how this creates opportunities and challenges to complete excellent work

Presentation 2: Transforming a Script Into a Visual Learning Experience: Creating Animations with Vyond (formerly GoAnimate)

“Animations may bring out our inner child, but they also have the power to improve knowledge retention, engage online learners, and simplify complex concepts.”

~Christopher Pappas

Your Presenter: Jacqueline Chauser

How do you visually represent a concept in education? As it turns out, it’s both an art and a process. Subject Matter Expert’s all have different ways of expressing their ideas. Depending on the budget of your client, the SME may have been coached during video production - resulting in a cleaner post-production - or not coached at all. How do you take the raw content from someone else’s brain, break it apart, pull out the key concepts, and then visually represent them using limited resources?

Join us as Jacqueline Chauser explains exactly how she creates multimedia using Vyond (formerly known as GoAnimate). Jacqueline will take us through her process of breaking down a script, pulling out key concepts, and developing an animated video. If you bring a laptop and establish a free trial of Vyond before the session, you will have the opportunity to practice breaking down a short piece of script and exploring Vyond for yourself. Comparing what everyone came up with for the same idea is always a blast!
