Big Dog, Little Dog: ID is not ISD

Big Dog, Little Dog: ID is not ISD | Pearls | Scoop.it

One of the trends in the learning industry is proclaiming that a new Instructional Design (ID) model, such as rapid development prototyping, needs to replace Instructional System Design (ISD) because the new model provides more benefits, such as it's newer, dynamic, and faster. Yet ID models differ from ISD models, thus its sort of like saying that a new boat model is going to replace the automobile—yes they are both transportation devices but they do differ in their uses!

elearn Magazine: Memorable Debriefs for Memory and Retention

elearn Magazine: Memorable Debriefs for Memory and Retention | Pearls | Scoop.it

After a two-day marketing conference I attended recently, a colleague asked cordially: "So, what are your top takeaways?"

 

I was exhausted from sitting, listening, and contemplating how I could apply all I learned to my own practice. My brain was so overloaded; I couldn't quickly gather my thoughts to provide an answer.

 

And yet, as a learning consultant, I know that articulating "next steps" is the most critical question to ask and answer, to ensure that the time spent in learning leads to changes in either thinking or behavior. After all, that's the point, right?

10 Tools for Increasing Engagement in Online Courses

10 Tools for Increasing Engagement in Online Courses | Pearls | Scoop.it

Over the last few years I've done a lot of work developing writing and redeveloping online courses and course materials. In the initial rush to get learning online many organisations got themselves a Moodle platform and then attached a whole load of PDFs and .docs, added some forums and the odd video clip and called it an online course. It's no surprise then that drop out rates for online learning courses have been so high.
