Content/Practice Ratio?

Clark Quinn

So, I’d roughly (and generously) estimate that the ratio is around 80:20 for content: practice. The point is that I think our ratio should really be 50:50 if not 20:80 for content:practice. What ratios do you see? And what ratios do you think makes sense? I end up seeing a lot of different elearning. And, I have to say, despite my frequent disparagement, it’s usually well-written, the problem seems to be in the starting objectives. So, two questions: do we just need more practice, or do we also have too much content. Learners appreciate it. design

Informal budget ratio 80/20?

Clark Quinn

Donald Clark raises an issue on his blog about confounding informal with Web 2.0, and the point I found interesting is his query about the 80/20 in/formal learning metrics. He queries the statistics, and the issue of supporting informal. I took it (and no blame to him if I misconstrue) to be an issue of should we match our budgets to that ration. I commented: Interesting point, and right in many respects. The point of the 80/20 (or 75/25) is to help people realize that they’re not supporting the 80, rather than to totally match the investment. Typically, bugger all. What say you

Make sure your monitor’s aspect ratio and your course’s aspect ratio are the same. There are two main aspect ratios in use in Articulate: 4:3 and 16:9. Another common resolution is 1280×720 which equates to the 16:9 aspect ratio.

This default aspect ratio is the most commonly used in computer monitors, TV sets, and most tablets. The other aspect ratio is 16:9 which is suitable for widescreen devices and should be used only if you know that your audience is using 16:9 displays.

Wage per sale ratio: How cost-effective is your overhead? You can find out by calculating your wage per sale ratio, or annual sales divided by total employees.

A software firm will have a much higher ratio than a retailer with many chains, for example, though both could be performing highly efficiently compared with other stores in their industry.

Instead we need to use plain language, short sentences, and a proportional ratio of text to imagery.  by Jennie Ruby    When information needs to be moved to a new medium, we have a tendency to try to make the new medium fit the mold of the old. When the Internet was in its early days, websites would often look just like a document: whole paragraphs of text with headings, filling the screen from side to side.     The same is true with eLearning. eLearning is not just an online representation of what we would do in the classroom. It's a paradigm shift.
