While deep in conversations with clients, I often find our discussion turns to the value of online or asynchronous learning to their learners. My response is always the same — the instructor-led or facilitated sessions are content linear, although layered with the personality of the presenter, their experience and that of the group. All which can provide an effective learning experience.
And online learning should also be layered and complex – just different. But often what you find happens, the richness of the facilitator and the audience is stripped out and what you have left is just linear content. So we try to add some nice graphics and interactions which adds personality but still provide an effective learning experience.
So I propose that you start by layering the content so that as a learning I can explore and engage in all layers (if I need that) from prerequisite to complex. You can continue by scaffolding the practice opportunities based on their complexity and the performance outcomes expected from the learning experience. And what you then have the optimal learning experience for your participants.
If you would like to hear more about how we design complex, rich learning environments, please give us a call.
