Announcer: The e-Learning Lingo Podcast.

Mary Kay Lofurno: Hello. This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director here at SyberWorks. Welcome to the 88th episode of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast series.

Last week, Dave Powell talked about “bluetooth.” This week Dave defines “nutshelling.” So I ask you, do you know your e-Learning Lingo?

Mary Kay: All right Dave, so tell us about nutshelling?

Dave Powell: Nutshelling is a summarization technique where students create brief statements that capture the essence of larger pieces they have written.

Mary Kay: All right, Dave. So in a nutshell, tell us what the benefits are of this exercise?

Dave: Nutshelling allows the writer to see his or her work as a reader would. Due to the brevity of a nutshelling statement, the writer is forced to focus closely on the main idea of their larger piece, which can be helpful in the editing and revising process.

Mary Kay: Thanks, Dave. Have a great afternoon!

Dave: You too. Talk to you soon.

Mary Kay: This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director at SyberWorks. Thanks for listening to the 88th episode of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast.

This week, Dave Powell talked about nutshelling. The episode 88 podcast audio and transcript will be posted on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast blog.

Next time on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast, we will talk about a term used in electronic communications and e-learning. Until that time, have a great week!
