eLEARNING DEVELOPMENT: Dude, Watch Your Aspect. Ratio!

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

For that reason, I think the eLearning canvas should be set up to use a 16:9 aspect ratio as opposed to 4:3.   The aspect ratio of an eLearning canvas designed to be viewed on its side, or in landscape mode, is the ratio of its longer side to its shorter side.

Content/Practice Ratio?

Clark Quinn

So, I’d roughly (and generously) estimate that the ratio is around 80:20 for content: practice. The point is that I think our ratio should really be 50:50 if not 20:80 for content:practice. What ratios do you see? And what ratios do you think makes sense? I end up seeing a lot of different elearning. And, I have to say, despite my frequent disparagement, it’s usually well-written, the problem seems to be in the starting objectives.

Informal budget ratio 80/20?

Clark Quinn

Donald Clark raises an issue on his blog about confounding informal with Web 2.0, and the point I found interesting is his query about the 80/20 in/formal learning metrics. He queries the statistics, and the issue of supporting informal. I took it (and no blame to him if I misconstrue) to be an issue of should we match our budgets to that ration. I commented: Interesting point, and right in many respects.
