Online Training: How Big is Too Big?

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by AJ George  In the early days of software training, many professional trainers that I've talked with said that the perfect onsite class size was eight to 10 students. For groups of 10 or more, it was a standard practice to bring in a backup trainer. The role of the backup trainer was to assist any students who might have fallen behind the instructor, or simply assist those students in need of a bit of extra help. If the class size was larger than 15 students, many training companies would split the class into manageable sizes, requiring multiple rooms and multiple lead instructors.

I’m working on a project with a partner, and have this really sharp ID working with me.  My role is to be guiding the design, not doing it, and it’s working well.

Ok, so not many ID theorists are talking about the emotional engagement. Keller and his ARCS model is really the only one. And some folks are touting it for elearning. Yet somehow the message isn’t getting through. So overwritten. Until they can’t get it wrong.
