  7. 7. THANK  YOU!  SantaAllen Claus Inter action s
  8. 8. Dear Santa,For Christmas this year, I’d like to requestNot something for me, but my team - a behest.My wish list this year may be long and untoward,But each one is important to move learning forward. 
  9. 9. Gen Y’ers need many a sim challenge and game;Let’s make their X-Box and Nintendo look lame.The X’ers are easy to please, no big ask;But real life scenarios sure get them on task.Now boomers don’t like all this PC-based stuff,But weave in a story for meaningful fluff.Matures are much harder, but think if you willOf some courses where clear ROI’s not a pill.
  10. 10. Make it easy and fun, make it feature-filled;Let instructional designers add flare when they build.Give me images, videos, interactions and toys,For new hire and tenured, for girls and for boys. And last but not least, if you could, if you please,Get me some learners who take training with ease;Who jump right out of bed in the morning to findWhat new courses there are for expanding their mind.
  11. 11. That is it, that is all – not such a big list.Without learning this year, all our goals would be missed.If we get all these treats for us under the tree,We promise to share them with joy and with glee! You’ll experience the fruits of our labor and then,We can celebrate learning with family and friend! Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
