Analysis Questions for Learning Design

Twitterpated with Learning

Random Musings Samples Analysis Design Learning I definitely favor successive approximation over the waterfall method; by prototyping early and often, you not only get a better sense of what will actually be most effective early in the process, when you’re best able to make changes, but sometimes end up refining the goals for the project itself.

Dig into the key differences between that ideal situation and the current state of things.
