Kapp Notes

Teachers, trainers and other educators tend to teach in the same style and format in which they have been taught. In the mid-1960s and early 1970's efforts were made to have open classrooms and more group work within the learning environment but by that time, the majority of baby boomers had graduated from high school and moved onto college.

Content as a Service

Xyleme

For better or worse, the development of learning content has been a one-way push process. As instructional designers, we create our learning products, package them up with all the content and media, wish them well, and ship them off to the LMS’s – never to be seen again.
