Product description

From the Inside Flap

“Shank’s straight to the point advice from world experts is invaluable whether it’s your first or fiftieth online learning project. Move to the front of the class with their guidance.”—Michael W. Allen, PhD, chairman & CEO, allen interactions inc.;   www.alleninteractions.com

“Patti Shank has pulled together yet another set of fabulous ideas for designing and delivering online learning. As they are all come from experienced practitioners they have been thoroughly road-tested and will get you up and running quickly, easily and effectively.”—Jane Hart, Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies, Wiltshire, England

“It’s nice to ask your cube neighbor or call a respected peer when you’re absolutely stuck on a project and need a brilliant idea. The reality is not they are not always around nor are they as helpful as you’d hope.  Shank harnesses the collective brainpower from a broad range of practitioners to give you the insight you need to make good projects even better.  The Online Idea Book provides concise and pragmatic ideas that you can adopt as-is or quickly adapt for your specific needs.” —Frank Nguyen, PhD, director, Learning Innovation, American Express

The Online Idea Book is a tremendous resource for those who are asked to do more with less. It’s like cramming an extra ten people into your cubicle to help you get your work done.”—Tom Kuhlmann, vice president, Community; author, Rapid e-Learning Blog, Articulate

“In the rapidly evolving field of e-learning, it’s important to stay abreast of the latest ideas and techniques. Patti Shank has again gathered a unique collection of practical, useful and effective ideas from contributors around the industry that’s sure to inspire you.”—L. Wayne Precht, applications architect, Tycho Project, University of Maryland University College

“If   you’re a corporate training manager, the book’s many examples from many settings are not only great ideas to adapt, they are superb guides to understand the learning expectations of younger employees, especially recent graduates.”

—Ann Yakimovicz, training manager, The PBSJ Corp., an Atkins company

“Patti Shank is back with dozens of new activities, tips, and tricks for making our technology-based training efforts better. This new second volume offers a smorgasbord of practitioner-supplied ideas ranging from design strategies to just-in-time thoughts on supporting collaborative and social learning. Information here is relevant to many different areas of expertise: developers, synchronous facilitators, and designers of self-paced instructional materials. And it’s everything a training resource should be: interesting, engaging, inspiring, and helpful.” —Jane Bozarth, Ed.D., author, Social Media for Trainers and Better Than Bullet Points

From the Back Cover

Many books recommend teaching and learning strategies based on current learning research and theory. However, few books offer illustrative examples of how to take these strategies and put them into action in the real world. The Online Learning Idea Book is filled with concrete examples of people who make learning more inspiring and engaging every day, in all kinds of settings, all over the world.

In this second volume of The Online Learning Idea Book you will find brand new and valuable ideas that you can adopt or adapt in your own instructional materials, to make them more dynamic and more worthwhile for learners and learning. These ideas will let you peek over the shoulders of some of the world's most creative instructors, instructional designers and developers, trainers, media developers, and others in order to help spark creative ideas of your own.

This hands-on resource will help you build online instructional materials or improve existing materials including online courses, modules, activities, or supplementary materials for classroom-based courses.

This book provides great tips, techniques, and tricks in the following areas: The Design and Development Process, Supporting Learning, Synchronous and Interpersonal Activities, Asynchronous and Self-Paced Activities, and NS Better Media.

Within these pages you will discover creative ways to give your online and blended instruction a boost by adopting and adapting great ideas from others.
