I had a great time at the eLearning Guild’s Learning Solutions 2010 conference at the Disney Hilton in Orlando, Florida. I had a lot of fun presenting my seminar Giving Voice to Your Learning, a primer about the do’s and don’ts of including voiceovers in eLearning. My audience was great, with lots of good ideas and discussion based on our mutual real-world experiences. I also enjoyed presentations by many of the other experts at the conference, and came away armed with lots of good ideas. Keynote speakers Sir Ken Robinson, Jonah Lehrer, and Leonard Brody all gave extremely thought-provoking talks. I also enjoyed meeting and talking with many eLearning vendors present at the Expo. All in all, a great experience.
If you attended my talk, I hope you’ll share your comments here on my site; I’m always eager to hear what you’re thinking. And if you missed my talk but would like to engage me to present it at your organization, just call or e-mail me. My talk touches on gettting the most out of voiceovers from both internal (amateur) talent as well as external pros. I received a lot of great response from attendees afterward, so I’m glad I hit the mark with everyone’s needs.

I actually built a little mike box as you discussed in your presentation. Here’s a video of it on youTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uz1DPXjP90A I just packed a Rubbermaid container with sound foam and put my microphone in that, works pretty well.
Nicely done, Greg! I also liked the look of the cartoon you were working on; I’d love to see the finished version if you post it. Thanks for letting me know; nice to see people putting ideas from the seminar into action!
Here’s the final product:
Working on a new cartoon just for fun, which will be more dialogue heavy and less animation so the microphone will really be put to the test. Plus my lack of voice acting skills as well.
This is a hoot! It made me laugh out loud. Thanks for sharing–I’m looking forward to the next one. I have to record voiceovers for a couple of business software simulations this week myself. Not quite as fun as animations, mind you, but still enjoyable.
