Here’s a short presentation that includes:
- The one powerful change that will make our elearning a lot more effective
- A quick demo of action mapping
- A fun example of the type of information that should go in job aids
- How to get people to stop telling you, “Turn this information into a course”

I gave this presentation a couple of weeks ago at the “Fresh Look at Instructional Design” session with Patrick Dunn and Clive Shepherd, sponsored by the Elearning Network and ALT. You can see Patrick’s presentation in his blog, and you can see the whole Elluminate recording, including a lively chat and lots of questions, here.
P.S. to email readers: If you’ve subscribed to this blog through email, you’ve probably noticed that the service that delivers it to your mailbox has delivered a bundle of posts the last two times. I’m sorry about that, and if it happens with this post, I’ll switch you over to a better system. You won’t need to do anything. If your In box is getting too cluttered with blogs, consider subscribing to them through a feed reader instead of email. To find out how, see this fun video.
