I would have to call this the "Joseph Campbell Lite" Infographic - still, a useful resource if only a reminder of the classic monomythic storytelling recipe.

Research for Practitioners: How Expert Designers Design by Angela van Barneveld : Learning Solutions Magazine | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"The contexts of academic and corporate designers are different—the cultures are different, and the organizational goals and objectives are different. While prioritization of design principles for successful projects in academic versus corporate setting may differ, the actual principles are quite consistent across both." from source: http://www.learningsolutionsmag.com

It includes useful information with comparisons of corporate versus academic instructional design based on two experiments by the authors.

ghbrett's insight:

Here is a new startup, Versal. It is an Online Learning authoring tool with modules that allow an author, teacher, trainer, or anyone to build "courses". Currently it an open platform.  I'm sure that if what they suggest is true, then it could be a model for a MOOC or online education platform. It was just announced on Google+ today with it's own circle and moderated communnity. The circle conversation can be found at: http://bit.ly/13yfk9y

 

I will be curious to hear how this application will scale up. Also, how it is currently managed and will this lead to another freemium web application that gets you hooked and then charges as your repertoire grows. Or when your audience expands beyond a few tens of participant to a few thousands. We'll see.
