  • 15. Adult Learning Lifecycle
  • 16. Adult Learning Best Practices Keep in mind… • Learning is a process not an event • Learning needs to be relevant to the job • Learners have varied learning needs, levels, and learning style preferences • Learning occurs when training is active not passive It’s important to design… • Role based learning roadmaps using a blended approach

  • 26. Why DITA for Learning Effectiveness • Better customer experience • Targeted content for improved performance • Consistent information • Create custom courses quickly Efficiency • Efficient reuse • Repurpose material from other sources • Company-wide standards • Faster development time • Topic-based authoring offers flexibility in content organization • Leverage stylesheet development
  • 27. Keys to Success • Instructional design remains critical • Learning requires context, transition, relevant examples not simply assembly – Resist too much step-by-step – Move from simple to complex • Get training team onboard with the move to XML • Granularity is a challenge in building mastery
  • 28. Learning More • Custom courses for DITA for both managers and authors • Custom Courses can make a big difference in adopting this approach • Just Systems’ archive of recorded webinars • Using Structured Content Whitepaper • Contact us by email
