People involved in developing instructional content tend to face a similar dilemma: TOO MUCH CONTENT! But when we overload learners with too much content it makes it actually harder for them to learn.
If you want your instruction to have the intended impact you cannot clutter it with too much content. That’s because too much content:
■obscures your message,
■makes it hard to determine what’s important,
■is overwhelming and demotivating, and
■makes nothing (except that that there’s too much) memorable.
In this session, Patti Shank will discuss and show six separate strategies for reducing content in e-learning that can be used separately or together to make your instructional content more impactful, engaging, and ultimately, better for learning.
Who should attend?
Instructional and eLearning designers, content developers and content strategists, technical communicators and anyone who has to organize and manage content.
NOTE: Although this is an online presentation, the SIG is also meeting in person for networking and discussion at the CGS offices.
