Lesson Relevance: Once you have established the Content Map, the next step is to develop Learning Guides. The Learning Guide servers as a course development map and will enable you to separate enduring content from the logistics of the course; this is the key to facilitating updates to your course. The Learning Guide will also be beneficial to learners by providing a one-page overview of the lesson and delineating a clear pathway of progression through the course. This structural feature will be the framework for each of the lesson in your course. I suggest that you create one Learning Guide for each topic in the course and do so before any portion of the course itself.
I enjoyed your session at OLC and read your book from cover to cover on my way home to Australia.
I am in the process of developing a new online course.
I have been trying to download the Learning Guide Blueprint but it does not seem to be available on the josseybass Conquering the Content website accessable via your website. Should there be an additional form available that addresses all the components outlined in your book.
Thank you for taking my book back to Australia with you! I’m happy to email the Learning Guide Blueprint to you. Please let me know if you find it useful.
