The “Dump the Drone” slideshow presents quick ideas that can perk up your elearning. Some of you have seen the show on my main site, but now I’ve posted it on Slideshare. This means you can easily embed the slideshow in your own site like I’ve done here or download it as a colorful PDF.
- What makes online courses boring
- How to create compelling characters and stories
- Ideas for adding “safe” humor
- How to tighten flabby text
- The best uses for readability analysis
You’re free to use the slideshow in your internal training as long as the attribution page (last slide) is included. The slideshow isn’t available for commercial use (for example, don’t charge for it) and it can’t be used to demonstrate vendors’ products.
The slides are from a talk I gave at an eLearning Guild conference. I’ve tacked some navigation options onto the version on my main site, but it’s still a slideshow, not a course. The concepts from Dump the Drone will be expanded and made interactive on the Elearning Blueprints site.
