How to design e-Learning

A really interesting interview with Cathy Moore.  A few extracts to sum it up  ….

  • We’re not designing content , we’re designing activities then getting the content to support this.
  • Think about the behaviour and not the knowledge otherwise e-learning can become an information dump.
  • Put students in a compelling situation then provide information as needed.
  • Often e-learning is like traditional presentation but even more painful
  • Exposing pupils to information does not change their understanding or behaviour.
  • Pupils go through the course and we’re done – it doesn’t work like that in the real world.
  • It’s hard to measure and control.

Overall 6 minutes long and well worth a listen.
