Your new elearning project is about to start. Everyone seems to know what they want it to be but you! Microlearning! Make it just job aids! But check they've read every page! Make sure there's a test! But don't make it boring! And here's the PowerPoint deck of everything they need to know!
Some say instructional design no longer applies in a YouTube world - people can learn from anything - but there's a difference between providing material for people who really want to learn to do something now, and helping other people develop for their jobs. They may not want to do it, and when they start they want it concise and interesting. That's what I mean by instructional design.
I can help with all aspects of learning design, but over the years I've focused particularly on Action Mapping and scenarios.
Elearning teams have worked with me in many different ways:
- one-off script reviews
- ongoing coaching/mentoring
- Action Map facilitation
- Storyline training
- full design and develpment.
What I don't do: Learning Management Systems and authoring tool selection, video and animation.
