This is Cathy Moore’s great blog on creating e-learning with compelling activities, using a quick visual design process.
Cathy explains how this can work in the real world by filling three roles:-
- Design document
- Outline (obviously non-linear; if someone wants a linear approach, I write a short, high-level text outline or move the nodes so they form a list on one side of the goal)
- Content repository
“A tool like the action map makes everyone focus on the business reason for the project and keeps extraneous information out–it provides discipline.”
A simple but effective action plan I will definitely be using for future e-learning design.
