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!
