Instructional Story Design: Book Review

Experiencing eLearning

Rance Greene’s new book, Instructional Story Design: Develop Stories that Train , provides a systematic process for creating stories for training. Even if you don’t consider yourself a storyteller, you can create stories to support learning with this book. My favorite section of this book is Part II: Design. That’s why I loved this section of the book so much: it focuses on the craft of writing compelling stories. This book is tool-agnostic.

Short Sims by Clark Aldrich: Book Review

Experiencing eLearning

In his book Short Sims: A Game Changer , Clark Aldrich provides a system for creating engaging, interactive learning experiences quickly (in about 40 hours of work). Instead of focusing too much on multimedia and “eye candy,” the process in the book trims simulations down to focus mostly on the decisions made. One of the benefits touted in the book is that Short Sims can improve both competence and conviction. Buy the book.

Book Review: Design for How People Learn

Experiencing eLearning

Julie Dirksen’s Design for How People Learn is a great book for instructional designers because it actually is written using the principles taught. Some instructional design books use a “do as I say, not as I do” kind of approach: they talk about chunking content into manageable amounts, using effective visuals, and motivating learners, but they are filled with long, unbroken blocks of dry text.
