Tom, from the Rapid e-Learning blog, explains how courses are like beer:
On a hot day, after mowing the lawn, a cold pilsner is more satisfying than a heavier stout. But when I go out to have a beer, I typically prefer the richer flavors of a porter over something lighter. There’s no right or wrong beer where one is of higher value than the other. Beers are just different. So here’s my beer-based elearning meter:
- Is the objective to share information or change performance?
- What level of interactivity do you need in your course?
- What should the course look like?
