But Does It Work?
Thursday May 24th 9:15-10:30 a.m.
It’s one thing to create an e-Learning course, but it’s another to make sure that it functions smoothly. Using storyboards, functions such as a QA editor and the Debug Mode in Lectora®, and well-run user tests are effective ways to achieve desired learning results. Join Laura Gillenwater as she teaches you how to get the right kinds of evaluation for your e-Learning course before it’s implemented.
Laura is a Senior Learning & Development Consultant and e-Learning Specialist at Sun Life Financial. She holds a B.S. in Communications and an Ed.M. in Education from Boston University and has been an educator for over 20 years. In her current position, Laura is responsible for designing and developing e-Learning courses, setting e‑Learning standards and strategies, and providing quality assurance for e-courses, training documentation and instructional design. Additionally, she is Chairperson of the New England Lectora Users Group (NELUG.).
Laura has presented at numerous conferences including the e-Learning Guild’s 2004 e-Learning Producer Conference, the 2005 e-Learning Instructional Design conference and the 2007 Annual Gathering conference, and the 2007 Lectora User Conference. She also has presented for the LOMA Training & Management Development and Customer Service committees and the New England Lectora Users Group.
Why You Should Attend:
In this session, attendees will see how to evaluate their e‑Learning course before it’s implemented.

You will also learn what a “QA editor” is and when you need one as well as when and how to effectively test your own e-Learning courses. Additionally, attendees will learn how to conduct effective pre-implementation user tests and how to use Lectora’s Debug Mode to find and fix problems within your course.
