Blended learning solutions include several types of media. Dianne has many years of experience creating the types of media below. Services with the star indicator have sample links in the Samples column.
Instructor-Led Training (ILT): This training is provided by a Subject Matter Expert (SME) or an experienced trainer. Dianne has provided these materials which have included PowerPoint presentations, instructor guides, participant guides, handouts, and other materials.
Web-Based Training (WBT): This training is presented using a Web browser. Dianne has experience using several tools to create this type of training, such as Articulate, Captivate, Dreamweaver, and Lectora.
Webinar / Virtual Training: Similar to an ILT, this type of training is provided to learners over the Internet or a company Intranet. This is the best of both the ILT and WBT formats. It saves time and money by allowing learners to take the training from any location but allows learners to ask questions. Trainers can display their desktops and run applications. Dianne has consulted with SMEs and trainers on the tools used to create this type of training and the special considerations that are important for setting up poll questions, test questions, and background support.
Online Help: Although online help is not used as the main learning tool, it can supplement training by providing procedural or process content and background. Dianne has created online help in both standalone and context-sensitive environments. When software training was provided, Dianne created the context-sensitive help for pages and screen elements.
Learning Management System (LMS): Most large companies use an LMS to create and manage training content, and track student progress. Dianne has worked with both proprietary and out-of-the box systems. In fact, she has helped to design the LMS at two companies; one was AICC compliant and the other was SCORM compliant.
Job Aids: Timing is important in training. Learners should receive their training at or near the time they are to begin using a process or procedure. Even then, retention of complex tasks may be low. Dianne has created PowerPoint, Word, Excel, and other job aids and handouts as tools that extend the training to the learner's desk.
Project Management: No training project can be successful without good time management and project management skills. Dianne brings her many years of instructional design and project management skills to every project. She is flexible, creative, and quick to support her teams.
Dianne has signed non-disclosure agreements with her clients, so real WBT samples are not available.
