Abstract:The client for this study, GriDD consultancy, saw a rising need for professionals to be able to create effective, visual presentations. They created face-to face training years ago but were interested to offer training online using instructional video and to objectively evaluate learning effects. The purpose of this study was therefore to design online training in which the creation of slideshows for oral presentations is taught to professionals using instructional video, and to evaluate its effects. The study is design-based, fits a pragmatic paradigm and uses mixed methods for this exploratory descriptive case study. Training was designed and constructed using a Demonstration-Based Training approach enhanced with context-specific instructional features and based on analyses from practice and theory. Evaluation of training focused on its effects on motivation and task performance. No effect of training on motivation could be concluded from statistical analyses. A large significant effect of training was found for participants’ overall increase of performance of the task to create effective, visual presentations. Additionally, a large significant effect was found for increased adherence to four cognitive communication principles related to task performance. Theoretical implications for this study are its addition to the knowledge base on applying DBT approach to construct training and building further on the accessibility of a presentation design instrument to gain insight into one’s ability to create effective, visual presentations. Practically, the client for the study has gained effective online training to add to their list of services.
