When face-to-face is cancelled: turning your content into engaging online learning
The world of learning looks very different today to what it did a mere 3 months ago. University campuses are closed, home-schooling is widespread, and most face to face corporate training is cancelled. As a result, educators and content providers need to adapt how they produce content to be is easily accessible to learners online, while still delivering effective learning outcomes.
One tool that can help with this transition is How Too – an online software product that gives people with no background in learning and digital design the power to make great digital learning content.
The tool is easy to brand, provides full access to an integrated How Too media library of contemporary photos and hand-drawn media, as well as gives users the facility to upload their own media for the digital learning modules they create. How Too allows the inclusion of videos, audio, images and immersive interactions to best engage the learner and help them unlock their potential.
How Too was created and developed by Savv-e, Australia’s leading digital learning agency, with the goal of putting best practice digital learning creation within the grasp of everyone, whether or not they have a background in education or instructional design skills and experience.
With over 20 years in the eLearning industry, co-founders Lisa Vincent and Jenny Barltrop are excited by the opportunities How Too is bringing.
“There are plenty of tools out there that help you create nice looking content and interactivity,” says Jenny. “But if that content doesn’t hit the mark in terms of what the learner really needs to think, feel and do to get their job done, there’s really no point.”
In addition to this, the tool is the only online learning development software that meets WCAG 2.1 Level AA accessibility standards for the use of the product and the courses created from it.
“While taking accessibility precautions is a good business move, simply put it is just the right thing to do. We are proud to have created a tool that looks out for everyone and makes sure they are able to participate in all technologies and designs,” says Lisa.
During this period of physical displacement, when online learning is an absolute necessity, institutions and organisations need to be more prepared than ever to create digital learning experiences based on frameworks which are well-researched and guaranteed to be effective for the learner. To this end, all How Too templates are pre-designed learning experiences that are beautiful and widely accessible.
