Greetings All! It has been a while since I’ve had the time to put up a proper blog post, but a colleague of mine has an upcoming webinar that I want to tell you about. It is all about converting existing classroom courses to e-learning (or blended solutions) and it is spot on for a lot of the work I find myself doing these days.
His name is Pat Smith and he is the principal at EnvolveMedia, a performance improvement company that specializes in the development of e-learning and the production of webinars and large online learning events. I’ve had the benefit of working with Pat or a wide range of projects over the last few years. His experience and expertise is a huge value-add to any project. He is especially good at converting higher-order learning objectives into engaging and effective e-learning simulations and interactions.
Pat’s webinar, Translating Brick & Mortar Courses for a Virtual Delivery, will be held on February 17, 2015 at 3:00pm (Eastern).
