  • The recently announced Digital Learning Asset Framework is gaining momentum! As part of fueling that path forward, Sam Rogers of Snap Synapse (also coordinator of the effort to build a Digital Learning Asset Framework) will be presenting a webinar on February 28th as part of Training Magazine Network's TechLearn series. It's a great opportunity to learn about how this new Framework can help us better make, manage, and measure everything from job aids to eLearning videos to gamified VR training.

  • Here's a recent Snap Synapse mailbox question from an author/educator wanting to make better videos content with his remote business partner: What tips might you have for doing a video when we are separated by 1,000 miles? Skype, Zoom, GoogleHangouts, and other video conference platforms all work great for these kinds of low-tech video productions. It doesn't matter much which one you pick, as long as you can store the recording too.

As usual, we're always experimenting. In this post, we'll cover the Top 5 Audio/Video gear purchases that we've put to the test and still love using every chance we get. [If you're just getting started with video production, this post is not for you. Go get comfortable with some Smartphone Cinema first, then come back when you're ready to level up too.] 18" LED Ring Light - This is THE go-to light for every indoor lighting situation.

This is the result of an effort led by Snap Synapse over the last several months, and involves input from a diverse array of some of the brightest minds in L&D from across 3 continents. This is a complete re-thinking of why we make media for training and how we can better manage them over time. Rather than summarizing and categorizing the training assets that already exist, this is a wholly new approach created specifically for a refined set of digital learning assets that conform to a higher standard.
