What eLearners Want: Key Factors of Instructional Design

What eLearners Want: Key Factors of Instructional Design | on learning by design | Scoop.it

If you could look into a crystal ball and read eLearner’s minds, you might hear stuff like “Why does this course treat me like I’m in kindergarten?” and “I wish I could just learn at my own pace.” Of course, you can’t read minds, so the next best thing is to research some of the key components of good instructional design and then use that knowledge to create courses and lectures that cater to your learners’ needs and wants. 

learning designer's insight:

"By knowing your audience and keeping individual experience in mind, you can create instructional design to give your learners the best chance of success."
