Can you even discern what the arrow is pointing to in this photo?
I was out in my kayak this summer, floating silently along the shoreline and taking stock of newly fallen trees from the violent storms we have had. The tree stump in this picture has been down for a while, but it brought a smile to my face when I noticed a beautiful purple flower growing from a tiny patch of weeds that had formed over time…right on the fallen tree.
It made me think of those days when a client hands over their “bucket of content” to us to start working on a new project. Sometimes, that comes in the form of a big binder full of pages that are either seemingly organized or just jammed into the binder. Content might also come to us in a digital version of a binder…a Dropbox folder or the like. It is sometimes organized logically, but most often it is not.Designing good eLearning is about bringing the content to life in a way that engages the learner. Click To Tweet
Once we have set and agreed upon the learning objectives for the training initiative, our next step is to get really familiar with the content and to find those special nuggets. Some may say, “It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack.” However, I like to think of it like searching for the flowers in patches of weeds. I guess it’s the gardener in me.
Let’s connect and meet up together on Zoom! We will help you locate those flowers amongst the patches of weeds.
