"I think the idea about giving users ratings or points to encourage them to contribute to an online community is a great idea, as one of the major challenges of social learning is getting people to use it. For the same reason it's also important to…"

"I don't think I've changed my opinion on what makes e-learning great but what I have started to realise is that more often or not it is not something that should be delivered in isolation or a one off and more as part of a learning experience.

I've…"

Stephanie Dedhar replied to Kevin Stall's discussion Writing questions before the courseware in Assessment
"Hi Kevin. I don't always do this but have often found it useful to draft the assessment before writing the actual course content. The main reason I do this is to pin down the scope and provide a focus for the content. Often there is a risk of scope…"

"Hi Mike

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I'm not sure there's a straightforward answer to this - if there was, all learning would fall in the 'great' category and unfortunately I don't think that's the case just yet! The key thing that jumped out…"

"Hi Stephanie,

I've been trying to think of a really in-depth and intelligent answer but to be honest I haven't got one, so I'll put some ideas of what makes a great e-learning course in my opinion. Not sure I have actually experienced a 'great'…"

"I completely agree Venkat! It's crucial that the questions in any assessment are developed with the input of the SME. I also think that it's often useful to create the assessment, or at least a draft of it, before beginning to design the actual…"

"I like your suggestions for how to approach an assessment to avoid short term memory or lucky guessing, Ken, but like you say there's additional work involved there both in ID and development terms. I've written assessments in the past that follow…"

"Hi Karyn

Thanks for your reply - I think you make some really interesting and valid points.

However, sometimes a 'traditional' e-learning course (one that doesn't buildin forums or allow users to update material themselves, for instance, and that…"

"Hi Stephanie

Looking at the question in your title and then contrasting that with the question in your opening sentence, I find a disconnect. In order for a learning resource to be great, I would say that the emphasis should be less on the content…"

Stephanie Dedhar posted a discussion in Share & Learn Good Practice
I'm wondering what people think about what makes 'good' learning content and what makes something 'great'? How can we make sure we don't just get stuck in a rut of delivering something that's 'good' and fit for purpose, and what can we do to make…
