As learning professionals, we know it’s one thing to learn about something in theory, but quite another to put theory into practice on actual projects. To help you with this, we’ve created The Elearning Design Challenge Series. Each series takes you through the design and development of real elearning projects to help you learn to convert learning theory into effective and engaging instruction.
The first post in each series will introduce you to a volunteer and their project. From there, the posts will involve you in the process to create an effective solution. We will define the goals of the project, key behaviors and skills, and cook up some awesome designs to meet the learners’ and organization’s needs. Each series will end with a working prototype so you can see how it all comes together.
We invite you to participate in the process by posing questions, similar challenges you face, and possible solutions. Our conversations will help all of us become better learning professionals.
Before we begin, we’d like to point out that we’ll be using many methods from Cathy Moore’s Elearning Blueprint. If you’d like to learn more about her process, here’s a quick introduction:
