Trainers, SMEs, and even instructional designers have spent time learning to write courseware, but very little time on visual design. Ineffective layout and design results in e-Learning courses that may be boring, non-engaging, or confusing. Just as instructional designers bring learning theory expertise to the course design process, visual communication skills can also enhance course quality. It's not enough to conduct proper analysis, align content with learning objectives, or follow ADDIE to create award-winning courses.
ELS is proud to introduce the trials and tribulations of Captain Smeid and his misadventures in creating really bad E-Learning. In this episode, our hero Captain Smeid will attempt to create a custom E-Learning package to help our wayward learner "do that thing that she needs to do."
Half adult learning theory, half dinner theater, and all fun, your task will be to capture one or more of our hero's mistakes that you have encountered in your own adventures. Be prepared to share your experiences and best practices with your fellow learners!
