#24 – You Can’t Beer Everybody

Play

Brian and Judy have a great conversation with Chad Udell about lots of mobile learning (mlearning) stuff (naturally), stuff that isn’t mlearning but people think is, home brewing, Letterpress strategy, and (as usual), we talk about other podcast guests behind their backs.

The drinks

Brian drank Yule Shoot Your Eye Out from Karbach

Judy drank Rudolph Imperial Red* from Three Creeks

Chad drank Merry Mischief Gingerbread Stout from Sam Adams

* Rudolph is indeed an imperial, so props to Chad on calling that. Judy neglected to mention that she liked it quite a lot by the end of the show.

#19 1/2 – Instructional Design Thinking

Play

Connie Malamed and Judy delved much more into design thinking and applying it to that voo-doo that we do…with sprinkles of Tin Can, knowing when you’re done, and egos.

We even talked about tools a bit — for wireframing, prototyping, and user testing.

By the way, if you’re enjoying these more design-related episodes, be sure to check out Emergent Radio’s newest podcast: Designing Opinion.

The drinks

Judy drank water. (Back off… she’s on antibiotics.)

#14 – Phoning it In

Play

A brief episode about Project Tin Can, next-generation SCORM, activity streams and much more, with our special guest and friend, Aaron “The Beard” Silvers. Stick around for the second half, in which Aaron talks about positivity, Up To All Of Us, entrepreneurship, experience design, pushing the community forward, and much more. Oh, and a special announcement about DevLearn 2012. Pour yourself a drink and settle in.

Aaron wants to make sure it’s abundantly clear that his thoughts are his own, not ADL’s.

About Tin Can: They are taking an agile approach. They also want community feedback and involvement. It will be better if you get involved.
