An eLearning journey – concept to delivery

This isn’t an EBI Interfaces event, but it is being organised by some colleagues in the EBI, and we thought it may be of interest to some of you:

Date: Monday 24 January 2011
Time: 11.30 am
Venue: Courtyard Room, EMBL-EBI

Speaker: Sally Walsh

Seminar Overview

eLearning is an essential element of all training programmes that are delivered in support of the R&D organisation at GlaxoSmithKline and there are limited resources, both in terms of people and money, to ensure that this need is met.

In this presentation, Sally will talk about some of the key strategies she uses to develop effective, timely and cost-effective elearning courses and solutions to support R&D.

Key points that this seminar will cover:

  • initial analysis and stakeholder engagement
  • essentials of developing an effective design and delivery plan
  • choosing the right eLearning tool for you (formal vs informal tools)
  • including the use of video and podcasts in eLearning
  • delivery of eLearning materials
  • establishing an ongoing support and maintenance schedule

This is part of the EBI Outreach’s new training seminar series that will focus on learning methodologies and the application of new tools in different learning environments (eLearning and face-to-face)

The seminar series will act as a nucleation point for new collaborations and that it will enrich our ongoing community-led activities here. We will therefore be providing an opportunity for people to meet up with Sally Walsh in an informal 1-to-1 session after the seminar. If you would like to book a 1-to-1 appointment with Sally Walsh then please send an email to and we will make these arrangements for you.
