5 Reasons Learners Hate Your Online Course

5 Reasons Learners Hate Your Online Course | Comunicação |

"Pet peeves. Everyone has them. And as it turns out, learners might have a lot more pet peeves about your course than you realize! Today at Your Everything for e-Learning Place, we’re shining the light on 5 pet peeves learners have about online training courses."

Ouch! I don't agree with all five. though:

1) It may seem Patronizing to describe how your course works, but not if you explain to your students that some of their co-learners are new to e-learning.

2) Poor Design: Ok, some courses are packed with too many animations, clip art and embedded videos

3) Poor Performance: Broken links are a pet peeve of mine, but big graphics and lots of them, may be hard on those with spotty internet connections

4) Locked Navigation: This drives me crazy, so I don't do this to my students.

5) Zero substance:Since I usually teach tech stuff, I haven't padded it with buzz words, I usually pare down the content as well.

Why do we love our favorite stories? Do they need a beginning, middle and end, and a character who changes by the conclusion? Masters of storytelling explore new answers to age-old questions of the craft.

Story-telling is a fun thing to get good at.

The best Prezi presentation ever!

When the CEO's presentation is approaching or a company's event is occurring, and if you think power point is boring... Take a look at our Prezi presentation...

Leuk om ideeën te krijgen en te creëren.

Great example of what Prezi can do.

Ian Korman's curator insight, February 3, 2014 3:19 AM

Prezi isn't new but it is still pretty innovative. I recommend using just to stick out from the PowerPoint crowd. You will really stick out if you use it as creatively as they did in this video.
