Mythless Learning Design

Clark Quinn

If I’m going to rail against myths in learning, it makes sense to be clear about what learning design without myths looks like. Let me lay out a little of what mythless learning design is, or should be. Using video and images for everything because we process images 60K faster.

Video Lessons

Clark Quinn

So, I’ve been creating a ‘deeper elearning’ course for one of the video course providers. But to do this, I had to do some serious learning about creating video. My mentor/colleague/friend showed me (by video chat) his elegant setup. Of course, he’s been doing video for decades. And that’s my error, too, since I have video anxiety almost as bad as my phone anxiety, and dragged my heels until things were too late.

Designing Microlearning

Clark Quinn

Earlier, I wrote about designing microlearning, but what I was really talking about was the design of spaced learning. So how should you design the type of microlearning I really feel is valuable? Performance support would be providing a set of steps (in whatever ways: series of static photos, video, etc) or supporting those steps (checklist, lookup table, etc). The design process, then, would be to identify the model guiding the performance (e.g. design mobil

Designing a game

Clark Quinn

He knew that I had designed games before returning to grad school, and had subsequently done one on my thesis research. They’d spent their budget on a video, comic book, and a poster, but now realized that the kids would play games at the Care centers. I taught my interface design students HyperCard, to have a simple language to prototype in. The resulting play was good, but the design was lacking (neither my student nor I were graphic designers).

Tools and Design

Clark Quinn

I’ve often complained about how the tools we have make it easy to do bad design. Authoring tools, in general, are oriented on a ‘page’ metaphor; they’re designed to provide a sequence of pages. The pages can contain a variety of media: text, audio, video. The challenge isn’t inherent in the tool design. It’s up to (all of) us to create design processes that focus on the important aspects. design technology

Learning Design Insights

Clark Quinn

I attended a recent Meetup of the Bay Area Learning Design & Technology, and it led to some insights. I was tapped to host the Learning Design conversation (there were three others: LMS, Measurement, and Social Learning), and that meant that a subset of the group sat in on the discussion. I’d chosen to start with 3 or four questions to prompt discussion: What is good learning design? Are you doing good learning design? design

7 defining themes for 2015 (with videos)

Ross Dawson

The last months of 2014 have been so crazy that I have, unfortunately, not had the time to create highly designed content on the year ahead. Here they are, together with illustrative videos. Now powerful editing tools make it easy for anyone to make themselves look wonderful in photos, and we will soon be able to choose how we look in video calls, making us appear well-dressed, perfectly groomed and made-up even if we’ve just dragged ourselves out of bed.

Anticipating the Next Wave of Experience Design

John Hagel

Experience design has emerged in part as a response to this growing need we all have.   It is no longer enough to design products and services so that they have aesthetic appeal and perform well.    We are on the cusp of another major shift in the focus of experience design, one that moves far beyond the impact of individual products and services. The design challenge becomes how to design experiences that maximize flow.
