Transcript of E-Learning by Design, 2nd Edition

About the Author
William Horton has been designing technology-based training since 1971 when, as an undergraduate, he designed a network-based course for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Center for Advanced Engineering Study.

He is the author or co-author of numerous books including E-learning by Design, Designing and Writing Online Documentation, Leading E-learning, Evaluating E-learning, Using E-learning, Secrets of User-Seductive Documents, E-learning Tools and Technologies, Getting Started in Online Learning, and The Web Page Design Cookbook.

Social Learning
Social learning involves learning by interacting with other people. It is not just putting information into the brain, but adding capabilities made possible through social interaction.

About the Book
This book is one of the most practical and comprehensive I have seen. It covers all phases of training in detail - except Evaluation.

I guess you will have to buy my book, EVALUATING TRAINING PROGRAMS: THE FOUR LEVELS which is recommended in this book. Anyone doing E-Learning must have this book written by the #1 authority on e-learning and all its ramifications.
Dr. Donald L. Kirkpatrick,
Professor Emeritus, University of Wisconsin
If you are new to the design of e-Learning, whether you have a background in instructional design or not, the book provides a quick guide to the varieties of e-Learning and to the intricacies of interaction online between design and development, between vision and tools.

A Book Review by
William Horton
President, William Horton Consulting, Inc.
Every newcomer to the field will find this edition indispensable, while professionals will find much needed contemporary information to manage the rapid changes happening in our field. Even if you own the first edition, buy this update as soon as possible.

Michael W. Allen, CEO of Allen Interactions, Inc. author, Michael Allen's e-Learning Library Series
Horton nails it! Perfectly timed, robust, and practical, this second edition of brings together the latest strategies for learning without losing its critical premise—technology enables
e-learning, but great design makes it work.

Marc J. Rosenberg, e-learning strategist author, Beyond E-Learning
Is the book for me?
If you are more experienced in this online world, the Author who has done lots of what he calls “autopsies” on failed e-Learning projects, will help you improve your results.
If you are the manager of a traditional training department or educational organization, Horton’s insights into the levels of e-Learning, from media to complete curriculum, and into social learning, virtual classrooms, collaboration, and breaking the ADDIE habit will help you succeed in making the transition to online learning.
If you manage a team of designers and developers, this is the book that you can use as a reference and as the basis for “how we do things around here".

Varieties of e-Learning
Standalone courses
Learning games & simulations
Mobile Learning
Social Learning
Virtual-classroom courses
What is e-Learning Design?
Start with good instructional design
Good design can prevent common failures
Avoid bad instructional design methods
Don’t expect a guarantee of learning
People are unpredictable
– no guarantee design methodologies outcome a successful learning
‘Dummying down the learning’
– lowering standards sufficiently
Don’t blame designers and don’t give up on any learners
Learning Type Activities
Provide Information
Stories by teacher/trainer
Field trips
DO activities transform that information into knowledge and skills.
Games and simulations

Connect activities help learners close the gap between learning and the rest of their lives.
Ponder activities
Questioning activities
Stories by learners
Job aids
Research activities
Original work

testing your design to make sure it delivers what the learners need
Social learning ranges from wide variety of forms such as discussions, feedback, dialog, collaboration, and learner-created materials.
Social learning is not just using Twitter or Facebook in class, but is more on building a community for learning and professional support by giving more comments and feedback.

Form group of members that have same objectives, interest and goals.
Mobile Learning
Participation in conventional learning by mobile individuals.

Mobile learning techniques and technologies allow mobile individuals to participate in established forms of learning including classroom learning, virtual classroom learning, standalone e-learning, social learning, and performance support.
Learn from the whole world.
- Locations, objects, environments, experts, fellow learners, the internet.
Learn more of the time - While traveling, while waiting, during found time.

Prepare of an increasingly mobile world - Communicate with anyone anywhere, capturing data with minimal limitation, information are everywhere.
