Voice Assistant Devices, like Google Home, are beginning to be adopted in homes and the workplace. It's also a disruptive game changer in the learning and development space. Learning professionals need to begin considering adoption of this tech and integration into the learning ecosystem as learning support in the daily workflow. In this hands-on session, explore strategies for creating an effective voice assistant skill; identify learning goals; and make decisions about the data that should be collected to measure competency against the learning learning goals. We’ll create a simple Alexa, voice assistant skill, no coding skills required. We’ll then create a workflow to create xAPI statements and connect the voice assistant skill to an LRS to capture learner interactions. We will explore best practices, discuss key considerations and debrief on the overall creation and use of voice assistant devices in the workflow. Participants will leave this session with a working prototype that can be use to facilitate a demo within their organizations and will be able to discuss the key consideration and potential impact of the integration of a voice assistant device in the workflow.

"According to the Harvard Business Review (HBR), companies spent millions of dollars on eLearning and yet they are not happy. Why? Because the eLearning courses in today's world are not standing out as they supposed to be. One of the most common reason experts found is not having a good relationship between SMEs and Instructional Designers. Although, they both have great potential and bring so much on the table. SMEs knows their technical proficiency, but they are not always familiar with the learning process. Likewise, instructional designers know the science of learning but often unfamiliar with the technicalities of the subject or topic. Finding the best ways to establish a common ground between SMEs and Instructional designers is possible if you know the best techniques to avoid challenging situations. This session will help you to discover techniques to handle critical situations and aligning the thought process between SME and ISD .

According to ATD’s State of the Industry report, organizations spent $1,296 per employee on learning in 2017. Yet many companies are not happy with the return of investment they receive from training expenditures. Organizations aren’t happy with the ROI because current courses are not driving the results they’re supposed to be achieving. Driving performance via eLearning courses seem to be a biggest challenge these days. How can we solve this problem? As an Instructional Designer, this is our main responsibility to identify the problem first and then come up with the best solution. If you are a training or LMS administrator, you would know that when learner finishes the course, it shows completed in the LMS with the End-of-Course scores. Either of them will not help you to identify the skill gap. For companies, it’s imperative to know how performance is measured and how eLearning courses could help. Finding a common denominator between performance and learning would help instructional designers to analyze the gap. In this session, you will explore the model separating knowledge and skill based learning from the course. You will learn how I created personas with must-have skills and each skill is divided into three categories: Novice, Proficient, and Advanced. The biggest takeaway of this session is to share the module with multiple assessments in Storyline. This session concludes with some amazing case studies of IT companies and how skill based impacted the performance.

What makes some lessons sticky and easy to remember, while others just drift away into the fog of forgetfulness days or even hours later? Radical Retention is the practice of making what you have to say stick with your team members or audience. Harnessing this practice has helped elevate service training and permitted leaders to more precisely communicate developmental processes at Orlando’s best hotel and the US’s ninth best resort overall, Four Seasons Resort Orlando. If you want to build a culture of learning retention it starts by doing something radical.
