A cure to really
long and irrelevant eLearning
Ray Jimenez, a decade ago,
started to evangelize and conduct his research and applications of 3-Minute and
chunking eLearning (incidentally this is now a book). Today, there is growing
realization in the eLearning community that chunking content is a key ingredient
of successful eLearning design. However, in a recent, survey conducted by Ray
Jimenez, when designers were asked the question "how do you chunk",
there are numerous divergent responses. Some of the answers are: "reduce
length of the lessons", "focus on what is important", "focus
on the must-learn", "less time for learners", and many more.
These responses indicate
a problem, "designers, developers and subject matter experts have no effective
methodology to chunk content." 3-Minute eLearning and chunking is not just
cutting the length of the content or reducing seat time. There is a process and
method that ensures that "micro-lessons and content" are effective and
help learners learn, apply and improve their performance. Furthermore, chunk content
drastically reduces the cost of eLearning development and reduces the time it
takes to deliver and implement.
In this workshop, Ray Jimenez
will share with participants his years of experience and findings on how to develop,
implement and deliver 3-Minute and chunked eLearning programs.
In this workshop
you will learn:
What research findings support 3-Minute and chunked eLearning design?
to test and discover that the content is bloated and unnecessarily large to actually
to analyze and process your business and learning needs and produce chunked content?
How to work with subject matter experts to help them chunk their content?
How to validate that the chunks of your eLearning are meeting the demands of the
to structure lessons to allow faster learning and applications?
to select software and development approach that supports chunk content?
do you use multimedia to enhance chunk content?
to set-up and design programs and curriculums in your LMS (Learning Management
Systems) to supports chunk learning?
do you measure the results of 3-Minute and chunk eLearning?
do you cut 70% of the costs of your eLearning program by using the chunking process?
do you use 3-Minute and chunk learning to support the growth of informal and social
of Demos, 3-Minute eLearning Book, Take-aways, Resources, and Community Networking
Participants are able to access online references, take-aways, checklists, hand-outs,
and templates up to 12 months after the workshop. They become
members to a community of participants to network, share and get support. They
will have access to a secure server to view dozens of examples and demos on applications
of e-Minute and chinking eLearning programs.
The workshop is for instructional
designers, developers, writers, trainers, subject-matter experts, and project
leads who wish to apply 3-Minute and chunk eLearning processes in their projects.
It is recommended for those who are in the process of creating their eLearning
programs and those who want to re-invigorate their programs and making them more
engaging and effective.
Participants to the workshop
are required to have basic web browsing skills and have basic skills and experience
in participating in virtual learning environments such as WebEx, Elluminate or
Adobe Connect. There is no requirement for participants to have eLearning authoring
Participants to the workshop
are required to develop a simple and basic lesson applying the
ideas of 3-Minute and chunk eLearning methods. This small project is required
before certification is issued.
schedule, structure and design
The workshop has three sessions
for a total of nine hours. Each session consists of three-hours. Each session
has two parts: Part 1 - Attendance to facilitated group presentations and discussions
and Part 2 - Self-driven applications and projects. Part 1 is usually around one
hour and a half and Part 2 is usually around another one hour and a half. Participants
make wish to spend more time with their projects.
