    [2009] Rapid Instructional Design with Powerpoint
    Sumeet Moghe, 2009. I was recently part a discussion on the ThoughtWorks Trainer Community, where we were talking about the problems of having to put together a course with 2-3 days in hand. Usually the only recourse in such a situation is to quickly slam together something in Powerpoint. Firstly, I think the problem is genuine which is why I'm writing the post. The pitfalls I notice however are: The delivery usually involves reading from slides. An average adult (in this case the trainer), can speak only at 120 words per minute. Sketch out your ideas on plain paper.

    [2009] Adult learning shminciples
    In the global game of Corporate Bingo, the term “adult learning principles&# must be one of the most abused. It’s a convenient abstract that can whitewash a range of unsubstantiated claims and half-truths. But what exactly are adult learning principles? The theory. Malcolm Knowles is widely regarded as the father of adult learning. Since the 1960s, he articulated a distinction between pedagogy (the teaching of children) and andragogy (the teaching of adults). In a nutshell, andragogy boils down to 5 key assumptions: 1. Adult learners are self directed. Adults are problem oriented.

    My previous blog posts on podcasting have focused the human side of podcasting: narration, story-telling, communicating with your audience. I've looked at what you say, and how you say it, dipping liberally into the eighty or so years of accumulated skills and knowledge from radio broadcasting to reinforce my arguments - after all, content is king, and radio is still the place where people talk. Now, it's time to spend a little time understanding the technical aspects of podcasting. Don't worry if you've never so much as looked at a sound file before. How is that musical piece orchestrated?

    Interesting post by Jane Bozarth - The Myth of "Best Practices" A "best practice" is best only in the precise, specific context in which it exists. What works in my marriage won't necessarily work in -- and may even damage -- yours. Even if moved from one situation to another very close one, the odds of transfer being made with practice intact is nil. How do we address those who pressure us to produce a list of, or abide by, "best" practices? As an individual encounters a situation he/she makes sense of the issue.

    I’ve just finished slide:ology , a wonderful book by Nancy Duarte, which celebrates ‘the art and science of creating great presentations’. Nancy is well qualified to show us how PowerPoint and similar packages can be used to greatest effect, as Duarte Design was the firm that created Al Gore’s Oscar-winning film, An Inconvenient Truth. Although primarily aimed at those who present face-to-face, this book has great relevance to anyone who builds e-content based on slides (such as those using Articulate or Adobe Presenter) or who presents using web conferencing.

    Mercenary Rationale for Network Work & Learning As I discussed in Evaluating Performance of Concept Workers , evaluating the performance of a concept worker is difficult because there's no right answer and most often the evaluator knows less about the subject than the worker. Thus, the bottom line in evaluating a concept workers performance is by looking at: Was a reasonable process used? Are the conclusions reasonable? How would this compare to results from other concept workers? To make sure you pass this test - I suggest cheating. They said I've gone through the right steps.

Asking people to jot ideas on the white board, the line that divides presenter from audience began to blur. We’re all audience; we all presenters; it shifts back and forth. Few things are black or white; most are shades of gray. As George said, it’s nutty for only one person to do the talking among a group of 125 people.

    [2009] What Goes in the LMS?
    Recently I posted on Learning Materials asking the question - What Goes in the LMS? The responses via comments were truly fantastic. In fact, they were too fantastic to have them "buried" as comments. And I wanted to add some of my thoughts, so I'm post again on this topic. Oh, and, as always, the answer is "it depends" - but let's try to come up with a few suggestions. Should go in the LMS - Only finished content.

    [2009] A few musings on Elearning Design Principles
    Here's Cammy's recap of Ruth's session from DevLearn 2009. Sumeet Moghe, 2009. I'm going to have to ask you to pardon me for not making this a typical visual post. I'm using the Bangalore Airport internet, which is excruciatingly slow, so I hope you understand. My friend Krishnan has been pestering me to come up with a few guidelines for producing elearning. The fact is that I'm not an expert to come up with such a list, but I can speak from my experience as a not-so-great instructional designer and a consumer of some such content. Cathy Moore writes eloquently about this. Thanks!

    I think it is safe to say that for most of us the personal computer is the first place we go when we are looking for web-based information; however, new web-ready mobile devices are emerging with increased speed and are blurring the line of what traditionally constitutes a viable endpoint for digital content. Have you seen the new Verizon netbook ? Is it a laptop, a souped-up PDA? Neither, it’s a “ netbook ”—netbooks have been around for awhile now, but the fact that this one was selling for under $200 definitely caught my eye. sign of things to come? What do you think?

This past year I made around 5,000 Tweets or about 13 a day. Twitter’s constraint of 14o characters is its greatest asset. You can only get one thought or comment out at a time. Once you get used to the medium, it’s much easier than trying to write a blog post, which of course is easier than writing a feature article, let alone a book.

What you do in life physically changes what your brain looks like." Our brains are so sensitive to external inputs that their physical wiring depends upon the culture in which they find themselves." Learning results in physical changes to the brain and these changes are unique to each individual." Students of the same age show a great deal of intellectual variability."

Need for the training to be in place before the product/service/whatever is rolled out to all 3. Realization that a training is needed at all comes a little late in the day 4. What ensues?

It baffles me how some designers, not all, can rattle off "150 hours to develop an hour long course." There may be times where we are pushed in a corner and we need to quickly estimate development time without all the information we require, but to get a realistic estimate I suggest we consider the following: The complexity of the content. Is there any content or literature already written that may be helpful to developing the e-learning content? Multimedia required (e.g. video or audio).

    [2009] The Various Roles of Instructional Design (work in progress)
    Job descriptions in ID (or, ISD) these days are all over the map, with very little consistency. It doesn't help that few HR and Recruiters have any knowledge of, or experience with, the field. So I'm going to propose some roles as I understand them, in the hopes that some day hiring managers will be able to articulate better what they want/need in terms of talent for their training departments or projects. Note that one person can hold multiple roles. These are ROLES not PEOPLE. And most of the time these terms are not used with any degree of rigor or standardization. NET, Java, PHP, etc.).

    [2009] Putting it bluntly: business games seem to work
    Thanks to Patrick Dunn for alerting me to Does Game-Based Learning Work? a report by Richard Blunt of ADL. It seems this report dates back to January 2008, so apologies to those for whom this is old hat. This extract from the abstract summarises the findings succinctly: “Three research studies were conducted at a national university to examine the difference in academic achievement among students who did and did not use video games in learning. Identical testing situations were used in all courses while data collected included game use, test scores, gender, ethnicity, and age.

    [2009] Brain rule #10
    Rule 10: Vision trumps all other senses In chapter 10 of Brain Rules, John Medina makes the simple but nevertheless powerful point that pictures are worth a thousand words. Some extracts: "We do not see with our eyes. We see with our brains. We actually experience our visual environment as a fully analysed opinio n about what the brain thinks is out there." " "If you think the brain has to devote to vision a lot of its precious thinking resources, you are right on the money. It takes up about half of everything you do, in fact." We pay lots of attention to orientation.

    [2009] Brain rule #9
    Rule 9: Stimulate more of the senses My review of John Medina's book continues with this exploration of the power of multi-sensory learning experiences: "By the time we came out of the trees, our ancestors were encountering a multisensory world and were already champions at experiencing it." " "You might hypothesise that our learning abilities are increasingly optimised the more multisensory the environment becomes." " "Extra information given at the moment of learning makes learning better. Multisensory experiences are, of course, more elaborate."
