That stuff is a great place to start and very necessary but it’s only about the technical aspects. As the saying goes “Just because you have a wrench doesn’t mean you’re a mechanic.” (or a linesman, or operator or anything else.)
To create really great learning there is more to it than just the technical pieces.
Creating great learning content involves other elements such as these. Usability, Visual Communication, Instructional Design, etc.
What it all comes down to is….Design Matters! Graphic, Communication & Learning Design makes the difference between training & learning.
Applying design in conjunction with how people learn….Base everything on proven learning theory. Everything from this point forward is based on proven research including: Cognitive Load (Sweller) (Clark, Mayer & Nguyen)Coherence PrincipleModality PrincipleMultimedia PrincipleContiguity PrincipleRedundancy PrincipleARCS Model (Kellery)First Principles of Instruction (Merrill)Nine Events of Instruction (Gagne)
…or not so good.
Take a moment to think about the most common mistake that you see in your everyday communications. What’s the most common problem?
Less is more…What you cut out is more important than what you put in.
“Multiple studies show that recogntion doubles for a picture compared with text” – Dr. John Medina
What makes good learning design?These quotes are from a #lrnchat Twitter discussion around the question “What skills are we missing in the suite necessary for good learning design?[ http://bit.ly/plfVr ]
