Stop creating, selling, and buying garbage!

Clark Quinn

I was thinking today (on my plod around the neighborhood) about how come we’re still seeing so much garbage elearning (and frankly, I had a stronger term in mind). And it occurred to me that their are multitudinous explanations, but it’s got to stop. One of the causes is unenlightened designers. You know, it’s not like one dreams of being an instructional designer as a kid. It’s seen as a nice to have , not as critical to the business.

So let’s look at some of Adler’s observations and see how theyhold up to today’s demands."

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. The remote itself is a classic case of feature bloat -- you can do just about anything with it, except the things you actually need to do. At this point, I think its preferable to the alternative.
