  • Questions are welcome as we go along; we also hope to have some time at the end of the session to dedicate to Q&A and discussion.
  • It’s important to start with definitions, as these terms mean different things to different people, and we want to make sure you understand how we’re using them today. We’ve created a special page for AENC on the Tagoras Web site, and there’s a link to Jeff’s podcasting guide there.
  • Association Learning + Technology is a report written by Jeff and me that looks at the state of e-learning in the association market and provides insight into how the role of e-learning in the sector may evolve in the coming years. At the core of the report is a survey of associations conducted at the end of 2010. We received 375 responses to this survey. To offer some data-driven perspective on trends, I want to highlight a few key points from that report. 77.4 percent of respondents to the 2010 survey, which formed the basis for our Learning + Technology 2011 report, said they currently use e-learning—up from 61.1 percent (so 16 percent) from the data we collected in 2008 survey. (We logged 349 responses to this question.) I’ll note that we defined e-learning broadly for that survey and report. Any activity in which a user receives instruction via a computer counts as e-learning, and so Webinars, Webcasts, podcasts, self-paced tutorials, facilitated discussions, etc., would all qualify as e-learning.
  • Since we defined e-learning so broadly, we also asked of the associations already doing it what specifically were they doing, and we asked of associations who said they were going to jump into e-learning in the next 6 or 12 months what they were planning to do. Webinars and Webcasts came out on top. We didn’t differentiate between Webinars and Webcasts—the audio versus video distinction Jeff mentioned, but we did ask about real time versus recorded. Real-time Webinars and Webcasts came out on top with organizations currently delivering e-learning (82.9 percent do them) while recorded Webinars and Webcasts topped the list for organizations planning to deliver e-learning in the next 12 months (63.5 percent planned to do them). Podcasts, whether audio or video, ranked quite a bit lower, at number 5 of the 13 options we listed in the survey. 36 percent of associations currently doing e-learning said they do podcasts. So podcasts came in behind real-time and recorded Webinars and Webcasts; self-paced online courses, tutorials, or presentations; and member-only discussion boards. Podcasts look about the same for associations planning to do e-learning—podcasts tie with self-paced online courses and tutorials for fourth place. So it seems safe to say that Webinars and Webcasts are here to stay, and podcasts, while less popular, are pretty clearly a familiar fixture on the e-learning landscape. I want to mention briefly a crossbreed product that is part live Webinar and part recorded Webinar. Organizations, or with or without the help of a service provider, capture the presentation component of the Webinar or Webcast, and then replay it at scheduled times as though it were live (even though it’s recorded) and provide attendees with the same opportunities they’d have in a truly live Webinar or Webcast to ask questions, so it’s a different experience than solo viewing of an archive. We’ve heard from associations and vendors that they’re generating learner interest engagement through these crossbreed live rebroadcasts.
  • Webinars are a relatively easy and inexpensive way to test the technology-enabled-learning waters. There’s often not a big technology cost for the association. Signing up for a monthly GoToWebinar license or the like doesn’t break the bank, and vendors have a wealth of resources—tips, tricks, how-tos—available. Most end users these days are pretty comfortable in a Webinar or Webcast environment or quickly pick up on how to type a question in the chat box. Webinars also typically have a short time to market. Since the basis for Webinars and Webcasts is often a conference-type lecture, it’s familiar to staff and presenters alike, and much faster than, say, self-paced online courses or CD or DVD content. Cynthia Hereth at the Restoration Industry Association talks about how she wanted to get association “on the map for some type of online learning or technology, and that’s where the Webinar creation came in.” She was able to roll out a Webinar series quickly while the association worked on developing a longer self-paced online course to help members prep for a certification exam. And in the second year she converted to two series of Webinars: Brown Bag Webinars, focused on more scientific or industry-related topics, and WorkPlace Webinars, geared to more business-related topics. Another advantage is that it’s possible to do a lot with a little in the Webinar world—although not necessarily advisable. Cynthia Hereth did all of RIA’s Webinars herself that first year—RIA is small (six staff), and her option would have been to work with volunteers, and she thought she could manage it more efficiently on her own. We know of a lot of associations where one staffer is charged with running the Webinars, and she or he gets it done. That’s not to say that some additional resources and a team-based approach wouldn’t be welcome or produce a better result, but it’s possible to get by with one just one person.

  • Within 30 days, typically 90 percent of what you learn in a session like the ones here today, you forget. 90 percent gone. So what can you do to make your organization’s Webinars, Webcasts, and podcasts the exception, make them something that sticks? I have five tips to offer.
  • In their book, e-Learning and the Science of Instruction , Ruth Colvin Clark and Richard Mayer (p. 66) recommend using words and pictures in e-learning instruction based on a survey of 11 studies that looked at test performance of students who learned from animation and narrative versus narration alone or from text and illustrations versus text alone. In all 11 comparisons, the learners who receive a multimedia lessons—so narration with animation or text and illustrations—did better on a subsequent transfer test than those who learned from words alone. Across the 11 studies the multimedia folks produced between 55 and 121 percent more correct answers on the transfer test than the word-alone folks. 89 percent was the median percentage gain. Words + graphics 55 to 121 percent more effective
  • Of course, not all images are made equal. And I’m not talking about the difference between a Picasso and clipart, but rather relevance to what you’re teaching. Clark and Mayer identify six different classes of graphics.
  • Related to making it active, for these tips to really make a difference for your organization, you have to put them into practice. If you deliver Webinars, Webcasts, podcasts, or other learning, then it’s a matter of walking the walk. If you rely on other instructors or presenters, as I’m guessing is the case for most of you, then you’ll need to work out a plan for these tips with your presenters.
