Stop creating, selling, and buying garbage!

Clark Quinn

One of the causes is unenlightened designers. You know, it’s not like one dreams of being an instructional designer as a kid. This is not to touch on their commitment, but even if they did have courses, they’d likely still not be exposed to much about the emotional side, for instance. Good learning design is not something you pick up in a one week course, sadly. That’s the designer’s job, but they’re not equipped.

Are Instructional Designers Making Themselves Irrelevant?

Xyleme

So what does that mean for the poor instructional designer when over 70% of the learning they create delivers poor customer experiences? The easy thing for an instructional designer to do is to rely on simple instinct and maintain the status quo.

stevenberlinjohnson.com: Universal Remotes Are Universally Useless

Steven Berlin Johnson

So I buy this fancy Marantz receiver that comes with its own universal remote that theoretically should allow us to consolidate the five remotes we currently have (for the LCD screen, the DVD player, the cable box, etc) into one single remote. To do this, however, you have to sit there pointing the cable box remote at the Marantz remote so it can learn the commands one by one, which of course is time-consuming and annoying.

Myths some teachers (apparently) believe
