Podcast Interview on eLearning in Healthcare

Lawrence Laganelli of the Inside Medical Assisting Podcast interviewed me about elearning, especially as it applies in healthcare. Although we focused on examples related to training medical assistants, much of our conversation applies to other organizations as well. Note that this is geared to people outside the field of elearning, including subject matter experts and instructors.

Topics covered:

  • What media I prefer for online learning
  • Key elements that make elearning effective
  • Methods to maintain student interest
  • Example of how to teach interpersonal communication
  • Presenting yourself and managing virtual classrooms
  • Trends in the future of online learning

The interview is about 35 minutes long.
