The cult of the question

Clive on Learning

In a facilitated learning intervention, interactions can be planned to occur alongside the use of learning materials, through group activities in a classroom, debriefs in a virtual classroom, forum discussions, practical group assignments, coaching sessions, and so on. Sometimes it seems that instructional designers are obsessed with questions.

How long does it take to create e-learning?

Clive on Learning

Bryan asked respondents to provide estimates for four categories of project: Instructor-led training (ILT) : A useful comparison to the e-learning, but also a reasonable guide to what it would take to develop sessions for the virtual classroom. I often get asked how long it takes to create a piece of e-learning. As we all know e-learning means different things to different people, but usually people are asking about the formal stuff, in particular interactive self-study materials.

Life in the Shallows

Clive on Learning

It took me a while to get through Nicholas Carr's excellent new book The Shallows (Atlantic Books, 2010). Likewise, those who run virtual classroom sessions should be upping the level of interaction.
