LS407 Six Simple eLearning Success Strategies
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Wednesday, March 22
Creating effective learning experiences is not a job for a novice, although many novices are thrown into the role of instructional designer or developer. If beginners turn to the field’s expansive literature, which ranges from cookbook-style guides and blogs to scientific research, they are easily overwhelmed and typically turn to overly simplistic approaches. But even experienced professionals can come to feel they’re never able to do the job that should be done.
This session will explore the objective of simplifying the task of creating effective instructional experiences, without oversimplifying it. You will come away from this session with successful strategies that are responsive to research and best practices, but that simplify the overall task while addressing the fundamentals needed for highly effective instruction.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to continuously evaluate designs as they come together
- To avoid excessive content presentation as a means to achieve greater content mastery
- To challenge awareness goals
- To design backward (it’s faster, easier, and better)
Novice to intermediate designers, developers, and managers.
