e-Learning DevCon 2009 - June 17-19

Looks like another opportunity to share my passion for making eLearning (and any education) more fun and engaging.  Two sessions at DevCon 2009!

Teaching others is such a reward and it comes in all forms.  From how to build a better downhill section of a mountain bike trail to reduce erosion and lessen future maintenance to an easy demi-glace for dinner.  By the way, the second one is so easy once you learn how!

And if you can add to your eLearning with very little additional money and reasonable time, it’s worthwhile to do.  I always think about who is on the other side of the eLearning.

What was there day like?

Are they doing this because it is mandatory?

Have they worked all day and would rather be home but have to do your eLearning?

If they retain just a little bit more, will it help them in their job (which means helping their employer, but also the quality of their life)?

Who is that person?

It is about the learner, it is about a fellow human being.  It’s an opportunity to add to their life.  Sounds pretty lofty but any chance you, or your work, gets to interact with another person is a chance to add to the world.  Even if it is in a tiny way.
