Description: If you think expensive technology or huge investment is always a pre-requisite for developing an engaging learner experience for your educational activities, think again! Technology can be affordable and this case based discussion will demonstrate how to use inexpensive but powerful tools to add value to your education activities. The presenters will demonstrate real-world case studies taken from medical specialty society, health care system and medical malpractice insurance sectors about how inexpensive technology tools can be used to increase learner engagement in activities thereby demonstrating value for education being offered and ultimately for the provider.  

The attendees will have access to a spectrum of technology tools that can be used in the life cycle of a CE program right from activity production through activity delivery and outcomes measurement. Often times, lower cost translates to insufficient features and/or poor quality tools. To mitigate this risk, there must be special emphasis on the tool selection process. The faculty will walk the attendees through a comprehensive framework for evaluation and selection of these low-cost technology tools. The attendees will be able to discuss other tools that have been used in a similar setting and share their experience and lessons learned with others.

Learning Objectives

  1. The attendees will gain knowledge about inexpensive tools that can be used in increasing learner engagement levels in a live event.
  2. The attendees will gain familiarity with a framework to evaluate low-cost technology tools.
  3. The attendees will gain knowledge about options to produce a low-cost case-based learning activity
