SMEs for Design

Clark Quinn

In thinking through my design checklist, I was pondering how information comes from SMEs, and the role it plays in learning design. And it occurred to me visually, so of course I diagrammed it. Then, of course, there are the war stories. Then of course, bake that in.

Shift in eLearning from Pure Courseware towards Reference Hybrids

Tony Karrer

The shift I'm seeing is away from the design of pure "courseware" solutions and much more to "reference hybrid" solutions. It's designed to hit particular instructional objectives. Reference" is static content - meaning no interaction other than allowing the user to link from page-to-page and to search. It's designed to provide either real-time support for work tasks or near real-time support for look up. Thus, "reference" to me is a good umbrella term.

How Long Should an eLearning Course Be?

Tony Karrer

Interesting question posed in eLearn Magazine article: How Long Should an E-learning Course Be? Interestingly the author chooses to sidestep the question he poses and instead gives a direct answer to a different question (focusing on modules that are parts of a course): What is a good length for a module? Through countless hours of instructional design, field testing, and client feedback, I have found that 30 minutes is about the maximum, and less than 15 is too short.

The magic question

Clark Quinn

A number of years ago, I wrote a paper about design, some of the barriers our cognitive architecture provides, and some heuristics I used to get around them. I was reminded of one of the heuristics in a conversation, and had a slightly deeper realization that of course I wanted to share. The approach, which I then called ‘no-limits’ design, has to do with looking at what solution you’d develop if you had no limits. design

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.
