About this Week’s Challenge personal elearning journals
This weeks Articulate eLearning Heroes challenge was to incorporate a personal eLearning journal into a custom training example. For our entry, we created a fully custom 3D office environment environment (using Maya from Autodesk) including a photo-realistic looking paper journal. When learners click on the “journal” button, a spiral bound paper journal slides in from the right. From there, learners can type their own personal notes specific to the content they just learned. The print button allows learners to print out their notes for future reference.
What we like about this particular challenge is this quote from David Anderson, who issues these weekly challenges and who is an extremely talented eLearning designer and pioneer in his own right:
For many learners, the e-learning course is just another workplace hurdle they need to overcome before they can focus on their “real work.” What are some ways course designers can keep learners focused and engaged without over-complicating the development process?
We couldn’t agree more. eLearning should not be a chore that employees have to suffer through. By making eLearning fun, artfully designed, professionally produced, and including tools that empower the learner, training becomes less of a chore and more of a pleasure. We hope you like our entry to this week’s challenge and are inspired to create new and different features within your future eLearning projects. personal elearning journals
