Hat’s off to David for this week’s e-learning challenge – this was a fun one! I’ve never been interviewed, but I feel like it helped me out in chatting candidly (or kind of candidly…alright…not really at all – I scripted myself haha) – something I’m going to be doing next month at the E-Learning Heroes Community Workshop in Toronto…I’m scared!
This week, we were tasked with recording our responses to the following 10 questions:
– Tell us a little about yourself and the types of e-learning projects you most enjoy.
– How did you become an e-learning or instructional designer?
– What are the essentials of good e-learning design?
– Tell me about your most successful e-learning project.
– What are the most important criteria in evaluating e-learning?
– What are some common mistakes new course designers make and how can they avoid them?
– How is designing mobile learning different than designing for the desktop?
– How do you evaluate whether your course was effective?
– How do you keep up your skills and stay current in the industry?
– What is the future of e-learning?
I loathe public speaking and I’m working on getting better, so the first thing I did was script my responses to these questions, because I’m really not great at responding to questions on the fly. After scripting out all of my responses, I hit up Camtasia and recorded (and re-recorded) all of my responses! I exported to .wav format (thanks advanced export options!) and uploaded the entire playlist to Soundcloud, added tags and a description, and saved the playlist – easy peasy!
You can listen to my recording, below (or by clicking here), in all of it’s awkward glory – hopefully you find my responses insightful or informative – that was the goal!
