What is IDIODC all about?
Well, it’s pretty simple. Instructional Designers In Offices Drinking Coffee, IDIODC for short, is a weekly, live video and podcast used to help ID’s with pain points and provide best practices and insight. Every Wednesday morning at 10 am ET, the upbeat and candid conversation encourages peers to participate in the chat and share their own personal insight! Often bringing on guests, our hosts Brent Schlenker and Chris Van Wingerden keep it real with objective points fit for people looking for 2020-friendly eLearning advice to better the L&D world.
Organizations often treat learning as an event rather than a process. As an industry we know that eLearning, videos, and instructor-led training are only the beginning. To be effective, we need ways to support our workforce over time, building competence through multiple approaches.
In this episode of IDIODC, Sarah Mercier joins us to discuss a budget-friendly trend used in digital marketing that can be easily applied to workplace learning: email for continual learning and support. We’ll explore how email can be used effectively for spaced learning and performance support. Learn pro tips for designing in this format, and see a variety of real-use cases. As we explore the possibilities of email as a learning experience platform, you’ll learn practical ways to implement this approach in your own organization.
Here’s a few topics we will likely cover:
• Practical application of email courses in workplace learning
• Examples of effective email courses
• Best practices in design of email courses
• Common pitfalls of using email to support learning and performance
