Providing a "Learn More" option
Good afternoon, all!
I am currently creating a fairly complex technical course. The base information will be sufficient for most of my learners. However, some learners will want to know more about specific topics within the course.
For example, if I had a section where a character sends an email, I may mention that most email uses port 25. However, I would like to offer more information regarding ports in this section, but ONLY for learners who are interested. My thought is this could provide a customized approach for the learners. Most learners would be able to view the basic information and if they want to learn more about a topic, they have the opportunity.
My question is: What are some ways you could think of to customize a course like this? Or, could you simply comment on ideas below and let me know what you think of them?:
- More info button on each slide (links to another slide)
- After each topic, bring up a transitioning slide that has 2 options: "Learn More" and "Continue"
- Have one character that asks a basic question about the topic and another character that asks a highly technical question. Depending on which character the learner selects, they learn the basic or more technical information.
Those are just initial thoughts. Has anyone seen or created a course that does a good job of this type of customization?
Thanks for any feedback or ideas you can suggest!
