Cammy Bean eLearning Expert Interview

Ms. Cammy Bean is a VP of Learning Design forKineo US. An eLearning veteran since the mid-’90s, Bean has worked on projects for a wide range of industries including financial services, retail and manufacturing. At Kineo she takes the lead on learning design, working closely with clients from concept to execution. A frequent conference speaker and active blogger, she also served as the ASTD TK12 Planning Committee Chairperson. You can find her blog at http://cammybean.kineo.com/.
During the interview with Ms. Bean she describes the process she used to design materials such as to conduct an analysis, develop an objective, create a storyboard usually in a word document, then create a first version of the educational materials in the platform without audio, then a second version with audio.
She recommends breaking up eLearning materials in small chunks of information and use repetition. Example a 20 minutes webinar with repetition and active learning can be a more effective learning experience than sitting on a lecture for 60 minutes.
What I took away from her interview is that social media have allowed people to learn from each other without barriers. Now you can learn from someone in another part of the world (e.g. China, Australia), who had a similar experience to yours, by using technology.
She talked about “responsive design”. Meaning your work has to adjust to the fast pace of technology. Now the eLearning materials need to be designed in a platform compatible not only with desktop computers, but also with mobile and iPad.

  1. Thanks for your thoughts on the interview with Cammy. It was great to hear her perspective. I have heard from multiple sources that breaking up learning modules into smaller chunks is extremely beneficial. I also thought that her thoughts on responsive design were informative. It is no lie that technology is rapidly changing and advancing every day, and elearning is constantly one step behind. Elearning materials needing to be designed in platforms compatible with smart phones and iPads as well as computers is a constant struggle as we keep adding more and more technologies to the mix. Thanks again, Livia.
