E-Learning scenario tool

A bunch of us showed up in the E-Learning scenario tool organized by Prof. Eric Tsui at PolyU’s HKCyberU – great participation as we have ‘occupied’ 1/3 of the class 🙂

I’ve never have much experience in creating clips such as flash or animated clips other than merely doing some animated slides with flying points and graphs.  I was wondering, what was this session about?  To summarize from Prof. Tsui’s email invitation:

The KMRC has developed a prototype E-Learning system for rapid authoring of everyday KM scenarios.  Once constructed, these scenarios can be used for learning, practice, and capture/sharing of good practices. We are conducting a pilot session in our laboratory next week and would like to invite you to attend. The 2 hours session will cover the following:

  • An introduction of the tool, potential applications, demonstration and illustrations
  • Hands on experience for every participant to use the tool to create/reconstruct KM scenarios
  • Participant can create his/her own scenario for sharing
  • Gathering of feedback on participants’ experience about using the tool
  • Discussion on further potential applications and improvements
photo2 hours was gone fast – after a short introduction of the tool by Teresa Liew, we got chance to use the tool and do some KM scenario testings.  Without experience in the software like adobe flash, etc, surprisingly i found this tool very easy to work with – a lot of the function can be drag and drop on screen, and you can combine different media/photos/pictures to develop your own KM scenario.  Then these can be used in an assessment system, again you can make up your quiz/testing questions according to your objectives.  For e.g., you create a clip on a company situation of a sales manager talking to  his sales rep on improving the sales figures, then in your quiz you put in the scenario and ask an open question on if you are this manager, how will you handle the situation.
After the session, we marched to our ‘K4fun canteen’ at Li Ka Shing Bldg.   Thanks to Anthony who got us a table of 13 people(!! Roy, TS, Anthony, Irene, Cheryi, Henry, Oli the hyperactive kiddo, Ricky the psychologist, Katy the queen of cooking, Amy the coffee master, Tracy=Apple=’xiao bing’, Desmond and Jen) and we had the chance to meet the “No.2 important staff” – mask man (No. 1 is ‘black face god’) in the restaurant.  We had some idea why HK was ranked No. 83 in the happinest study – probably too stressful at work or make a living.  We were delighted that first of all, Irene can join us finally for this nice dinner, and also to share her achievement of getting the best presenter award in her recent work at school!  hurray and well done Irene 😀
Thanks to Cheryi introduced us to a free webinar on “Using Web2.0 Technologies to Stimulate Safety Discussions”.  For more info., pls click here.
Oops! we forgot to take a photo… and there was indeed a very funny nickname that we had ‘discovered’ from Tracy.  I can’t explain here coz’ I don’t want to die yet 😛 … you may ask her what was that nickname next time when you see her.

    i duno why, but i suddenly switched to 3 rd person mode when i watch mask man. It is so dramatic to see what he say and acts.

  2. TS says

    Yes, we can learn by looking at things at different perspectives:

    What had the Mask Man got through that have triggered his current bahavior?

    Would I or did I have similar behavior if I had gone through similar situations?

    I certainly wouldn’t feel good when being treated (by the mask man) like this. So I better not behave like mask man in treating my customers, my friends and family members no matter what.

    If I want my staff to treat my customers well, I need to treat my staff well.

  3. TS says

    We would become more empathetic by looking at things from different perspectives and would feel differently. Such experience may also be called “paradigm shift”.
