SEPTEMBER 1, 2009 Characters in eLearning
This expert simplifies information or provides useful tips drawing from his experience. The role could be defined such that he/she makes an entry to challenge, guide, provide useful information, and so on. I read this interesting post on Have you thought of Character Driven Stories for Your eLearning? by Rupa (@ruparajgo). was tempted to blog about it myself (thanks for the inspiration, Rupa). What role can a character(s) play in your eLearning porgram? Expert: This is probably the most common use of a character in eLearning. The character takes on the role of a mentor.

APRIL 19, 2010 5 Unlearnable Elements in Your eLearning
Next time, we start storyboarding let us not start with the definition, move to the history, dump information on screens, provide useless visuals, and add pointless exercises at regular intervals. What are the 5 unlearnable elements that all IDs should steer clear off? Definitions Definitions (especially poorly written ones) are not important. Look at a few examples. Meaning? Think about it.

AUGUST 4, 2008 Dick and Carey Model
These provide insights into how the instruction can be improved. Walter Dick and Lou Carey created a systematic process for designing instruction. This theory borrowed from behaviorist, cognitivist, and constructivist schools. Dick and Carey were influenced by Robert Gagne’s conditions of learning. The sub-skills that have to be mastered should be identified. Conduct Instructional Analysis.

APRIL 15, 2011 A Little Professionalism Please?
It was always their job to provide and check content. Is professionalism going extinct? The more I interact with people outside my organization, the more I realize that professionalism is becoming the thing of the past. For those of you who are professional, the following list may seem very obvious. But, trust me, the people who are not need to read this: 1) It is not OK to take credit for another person's work. Whether you are a vendor, a senior, a junior, a stakeholder, SME, client, you have no right to take away credit from hard work done. Always give credit where it's due.

MAY 28, 2008 Tailor-made Courses
This was because they remembered the cues provided during the workshop and therefore, found the course interesting. Provide relevant information : Imagine this scenario. Do you buy clothes that are three times your size? Do you buy shoes that are twice as big as your feet? Why not? guess the logical explanation is that we prefer to buy things that are made for us. At school, why do we begin at the 1 st standard and proceed to higher classes? Why are all children not put in the same class? This is because each learner is at a different level and their learning needs are different.

NOVEMBER 22, 2010 Which feature do I add on the learner interface?
The idea is not to undermine the importance of features provided in a course. I was reading this articles posted by Geeta , NO Next and Back Buttons on Learnability Matters. It was great reading and reminiscing the experience of designing the course on 'Dealing with Conflict Management.' At Kern, we give a lot of importance to user and learning experience. How you ask? Let me ask you a question. How do you decide what goes on the learner interface ? We use the basic buttons/features: Next, Back, Pause/Play, Audio Mute, References, Glossary B. Think about it. Do a really small experiment.

SPEAK OUT Feedback - A Powerful Learning Tool
| MONDAY, JULY 14, 2008
If the answer is incorrect, provide
the learner with another opportunity to rethink his/her answer. If the learner fails to answer correctly after two attempts, provide
the correct answer and the logic for the incorrect options. Feedback as a teaching tool is majorly underestimated. Several courses include feedback as "That's correct!" or "That's incorrect!" How useful is this to the learner? Feedback should include a rationale. The learner should be made aware of why he/she got it right or wrong. Feedback must be immediate. It is an effective teaching tool. Check it out. MORE >>
