Online Learning Video Tour

Online Learning Video Tour

BOABC’s New Online Learning I’ve been working with the Building Officials’ Association of BC for a couple of years to build online learning. We’re down to crunch time and getting very close to launching their new level one eLearning. We used Articulate Storyline 360 to build the modules. Then we publish them to BOABC’s custom Moodle site. I’ve called them “online study guides”. They to help learners become intimately familiar with the BC Building Code. The ultimate goal is to help members prepare for exams. This video is a sneak peek of the new template and the first module of the level one series. The video, built in Camtasia 2019, is just another type of media we work with at Hemeon Learning. Contact us today to get us started building what your learners need to be successful. http://hemeonlearning.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/BOABC_L1_Intro_Small7.mp4...
CGA Instructor Led Training Content

CGA Instructor Led Training Content

CGA Instructor Led Training The Canadian Gas Association needed content from an online course added to an in-person training program. They also wanted a job aid and PowerPoint presentations. We helped them update their instructor led training content. Below you can see some excerpts of the results of the project. We also redesigned a quiz to make it more print and user friendly. The content itself is geared towards firefighters across Canada who need to be familiar with emergency response for natural gas emergencies. The CGA also needed a way to distribute the content. Enter Moodle. Although Moodle isn’t officially a content-sharing portal, the CGA already had a site for online learning. It was easy to create a “course” where we could upload the content. The Moodle platform makes it easy for the CGA to control access to the material and replace individual items with updated versions as needed. The CGA’s internal graphics team created several relevant graphics to include in the program. We interspersed these with stock photos as well as some custom photos provided by the CGA’s member organizations. We wanted to ensure that the content was both engaging as well as relevant to the audience. Having appropriate photos of equipment and procedures was key to the project. Next Steps Once the instructor led content is fully updated we’ll be converting the older portions to online learning. This will give the CGA the option to deliver the full program either in-person or as online learning. They’ll even be able to offer a blended approach since both versions will be modular and follow a similar format. Making solutions modular...
Engaging eLearning module for BOABC

Engaging eLearning module for BOABC

Challenge The BOABC needs an engaging eLearning module. It needs to give learners an overview of some of the changes to the BC Building Code. Solution We created a magazine-style module in Articulate Storyline 360. The module uses a table of contents so learners can navigate the “articles”. Some articles are a single spread. Other articles use the built-in navigation to move between pages. We chose real images and kept the text simple. Other sections of the module use review questions, activities, and process interactions. Contact us for more information about this module and learn how we can help...
Driving for a Healthier Planet

Driving for a Healthier Planet

Challenge This learning “bite” complements a larger initiative on driving awareness. This is the third in a series that focuses on behaviour changes employees can make to reduce vehicle emissions. Solution The final module includes four videos with an eLearning “wrapper” to package them together. The eLearning “wrapper” allows the learning management system to track completion. Working with the client’s internal design team and subject matter experts, we brought the pieces together. Afterwards we assisted with the video scripts, shot lists and developed the eLearning course. Hemeon Learning also designed the eLearning module’s look and feel. The look and feel goes with the video style which looks like old, silent movies. We used a border around the text slides to draw attention to the short text blurbs. The title slide image has a sepia tone to complete the look. We designed simple, custom buttons and a straight-forward menu. As a result, learners can easily navigate the short course. A professional videographer shot the videos. The client’s in-house editing team edited them before passing them on to us to incorporate them into the eLearning course.

BOABC Online Learning Program

BOABC Online Learning Program

We used instructional design techniques to convert modular training from instructor-led materials into a full online program. Challenge The Building Officials’ Association of BC needs to offer their level one training program to a larger audience. The audience is across the province of BC. This makes in-person training challenging. Solution We started with the instructional design for one module, or lesson. We took the existing trainer guide and wrote an eLearning outline. The outline includes a description, topics, learning objectives, and the lesson quiz questions. After the client approved the outline, we turned it into an eLearning course. We designed a template and style based on the client’s preferences. Once the client approved the initial lesson, we repeated the process for all 13 of the lessons in level one. The online program will incorporate the lessons when they are all reviewed and approved. The lack of images and learning activities in the existing content proved challenging. We solved image challenges by adding relevant stock photos and repurposing diagrams. Diagrams with markers, tabbed interactions, and review questions provide activities throughout the lessons. Prompts in the course encourage learners to read sections of the building code. Each lesson also has a printable workbook. It gives learners even more practice with relevant concepts.
