Have you ever seen a cool widget, a short animation, or a learner interaction in a larger learning solution and thought “How’d they do that?” Well, here’s your chance to get under the hood of projects and explore the creative techniques you can use to craft these experiences yourself using common tools like Storyline, Captivate, PowerPoint, and more!
Join us for How I Made This—where our selection of experts step up to the workbench to show you exactly how you can create cool and impactful features and functions that will really fire up your next eLearning project. Join us the day before the main conference to walk through how to build amazing technical marvels and also ask the expert the questions you need to be answered to do it yourself.

Want to start your conference off with a laugh? Then check out Presentation Roulette—our L&D-themed improv event. You'll see some of our most trusted speakers present, but with a twist—they have no idea what their slides are and all of them feature some of the strangest stock imagery we could find!
Meet new people, see the speakers you know scramble to make a weird presentation work, and, best of all, have a great time.

The Speed Project Review session is a way to get a lot of feedback from a wide variety of people in our field. Part peer review, part speed dating, you’ll pair up with another attendee, give your thoughts on the strengths and areas for improvement for each other’s projects, and then switch partners… and then switch again… and switch again. By the end of the 60 minutes, you’ll have numerous ideas about what’s working well in your project and what could use some adjustments to help it succeed. So bring a project you’d like to get others’ insights on and be ready to help them with their project challenges too!
