Designing interactions? Perhaps you shouldn’t bother…

Posted on Apr 7, 2013

I was recently asked to facilitate a session at an eLearning Network event. The rest of the speakers spoke in great detail about what interactions was, wasn’t and how to ensure that we used ‘science’ to craft our interactions.


I facilitated a session that essentially said “don’t bother” – well at least for some things….

  1. Excellent presentation!Great one.

  2. I was at the eLN event on Friday and found your presentation really inspirational. It was great to get another perspective on creating eLearning for the workplace. It made me think about how I am sometimes over thinking an interaction that would be better served by just keeping it ‘real’. Thanks for sharing your presentation here too.

      Don’t hesitate to give me a shoot of I can help at all in the future.

Enough of the lurking! Why not leave a comment? You know you want to...
