I haven’t written in an age. So I’m stopping beating about the bush and thought I’d quickly share with you a blog post which I just read on how to create engaging elearning with PPT.

I’m reading Jane Bozarth’s Social Media for Trainers at the mo (see link to Jane Hart’s post). I’m planning on doing a review/thoughts shortly but I was reading about twitter use at conferences and Jane mentioned a talk that she gave called Better than Bullet Points.

Cammy Bean attended and used Twitter to take notes. She then wrote this blog post. Thought it sounded pretty good and I should share:

Really liked idea of applying Richard Mayer’s SOI model to learning with PPT.

“Select, organize and integrate”

  • Select important information
  • Organize it into meaninful wholes
  • Integrate it with real world problems

I’ve never come across this before so I’ve obviously got a lot of reading to catch up on.

Acknowledgements: Jane and Cammy are both trainers who use social media.
