Learning Guide

Audio Introduction

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.

    Dear Robin
    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.
    Regards Jillian

    I cannot find your learning guide blueprint either on this website or on the “premium content” page. No specific URL is given in the workbook, other than “go onto the website and download the Learning Guide Blueprint.” There is no clearly marked indication on this webstie of where that file could be found.

    The book tells me action item 16 is to download the learning guide blue print, but I can’t find the blue print here to download. Only the introduction to it.

    Dear Robin

    I am in the process of developing online courses at our university and would like to have access to the Learning Guide Bluprint that you have discussed in your book.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello Robin,

    I am finding your book valuable while planning my online course for the fall! The structure is clear and will help my learners immeasurably. Like Jillian, I cannot find the Learning Guide blueprint on the Jossey-Bass website. Would you be able to upload it to that site or to your website? Thank you!
