The learning professional as storyteller

Clive on Learning

Back in 2003, I devoted a great deal of energy to the design of a new CD-ROM course entitled Ten Ways to Avoid Death by PowerPoint. In blatant disregard of all the usual constraints of time and budget, I set out to design a programme that was both highly interactive and media-rich, engaging as many of the senses as possible. Last year I worked on a major project to develop online courses for HR professionals.

But as it happens, it is not the needs of the user that comes first but other factors – this could be because of the lack of resources like time or budget on the project or the lack of awareness how the user actually uses the product – at times it is a puzzle for developers to discover they have provided all the functionality and yet the users “don’t get” how to work the product.

Both synchronous and asynchronous e-learning will gain portfolio share in most enterprises in reaction to continued pressure on development budgets and greater flexibility in scheduling and delivery.
