Three Media

At a professional development event a couple of weeks ago, a colleague made the following provocative assertion:

  • Elearning is for the “what”
  • Classroom is for “how”
  • Webcast is for review

That strikes me as at best a vast oversimplification for a number of reasons, but at least it has the (significant) advantage of being easy to explain to customers.

When I interview experienced instructional designers, I’ve started experimenting with asking them what they think of this model. Be ready for it if you interview with me!
