Does anyone feel they're creating online versions of word doc?
Do you feel you're just transferring text from a word doc and pasting it into PowerPoint????
Okay, the above is a little dramatic, I do create a little more than linear style content, but generally this is how I feel...
It's not because I lack the experience or the creativity......it's because my company seems to want to say 'yes' to every client who wants a course, despite the fact that there's only me developing them!
I always feel like I don't have the time to think about new and fun ways to display the content I'm given let alone develop it! It's getting to the point where my brain is in automatic mode. A project comes in and instead of thinking of it as a new project, a new chance to be creative, I'm already thinking, 'right I only have time to do it this way....flip books, that'll take care of a few pages!'
It's not just the time scales either, it's the amount of work involved. For instance, I've just been given a project that is 169 A4 pages large, with 350 quiz questions and 2 assessments, all to be completed by the end of June! I have two little helpers, but they're not experienced, they're complete beginners in Articulate and the world of course development!
All in all, it's becoming very demotivating and very boring...does anyone have the same problem? Is your boss not really understanding the work that must go into course development and therefore setting you unrealistic objectives?
Your thoughts please
