Designing highly technical courses


I am an Instructional Designer working on a new project to design a highly technical e-learning course for pilots, covering mechanical/aeronautical engineering elements. Any ideas/suggestions/previous examples of how such a topic can be dealt with in an interesting and interactive way? Any ideas for scenarios will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Hi Atika- I created a course for a hardware company that showed the inner working of the logic board and had my learners drag the appropriate cables to their locations. 

This provided real world job site context and the interactivity is better then listening to VO. 

Create 3 IT professionals (your actors) and take the learner thru their lives on the job. 

Have fun! - Ryan D.
