Linear courses are the convention in eLearning for a variety of reasons:
Knowledge often builds on itself and many subjects and skills are more easily learned in a predetermined, logical sequence.Instructional design methodologies tend to force a linear approach. Once designers develop this habit, it takes a greater awareness to break free from this mindset.Many rapid development authoring tools promote linear designs. The default NEXT and PREVIOUS buttons encourage a linear mindset so that it takes an experienced designer to provide an alternative.What’s Wrong with Linear
Although sequential style eLearning may be appropriate in some cases, there are several problems with using a linear approach for all audiences and all content.
The linear approach removes control from learners, some of whom prefer to explore or discover things in an order that is meaningful to them. When instruction is relevant to a learner’s goal, research shows that learner control is beneficial to learning (DeRouin 2004).Linear eLearning does not take into account the expertise level of the learner. It assumes all learners should go down the same road, not accounting for differences in knowledge and experience.Linear style eLearning lacks the motivational boost that comes from determining one’s own learning path.Linear eLearning does not take advantage of the hyper-linking and networked features of web technologies.
La irrupción de la tecnología ha modificado incluso los contextos cotidianos en que las personas se desenvuelven. Para las generaciones que han presenciado estas transformaciones, urge la necesidad de adaptarse, sin embargo, para quienes han nacido inmersos en el nuevo entorno, las tecnologías constituyen una extensión natural, a través de la cual se produce gran parte de las experiencias personales y sociales, como la comunicación, el intercambio, la creación, etc.

The presentation looks specifically at the changing nature of organisations and the emergent power of networks and networking. Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) is a competence we must all learn in order to remain relevant to our organisation. But who ultimately “owns” the ‘corporate’ knowledge that we gather through the workplace networks we nurture and sustain, and do the organisations we work for even recognise the importance of these networks as places for continual learning, knowledge sharing and incubators for innovation?
