Mini-Course Project

Working on a number of projects (including the newest book) but am also creating a mini-course with my good friends at Kaplan EduNeering. I've written a number of whitepapers and done a number of projects with their Chief Learning Officer and now she and I have teamed up with the folks from the 8:45 Club to create a course which is broken into 10 segments and delivered to your desk top every morning to start your day.

The idea is that you can get up and start to learn at 8:45 and then be done by 9:00, I love the concept of the mini-course. Starting the day with a short learning event is a great way to get going. We are doing our course on Designing instruction, with an overview and then a deeper dive into the ADDIE model of instructional design.

Here is a smuggled screen shot of part of the course. Look for an announcement soon at this blog of how you can register for the course at Kaplan EduNeering and start your day with a mini-lesson on instructional design.

Karl discussing the ADDIE model of instructional design in less than 15 minutes.

Thanks everybody, actually, I am working on a number of "mini-course" projects. In fact, just completed one about visual storytelling. Check out link to the presentation by following the link

This is a really wonderful idea! However, I'd like the option to get mine by SMS and watch directly on my phone while I commute to work :)

How does the instructional design process differ for the "mini course"?
