Too many directions/tips for learners before the module begins
Apr 25, 2011
Do you all send learners an email tip sheet, dedicate the first 3 slides to tips/suggestions to completing the module, and give tips/suggestions/instructions on the LMS/application page where they start the module?
While I know things need to be repeated sometimes, I feel like these tips are not for success with the module, but for the LMS/Application itself. The problem being, some people time out because of various reasons: checking email, getting distracted, opening multiple browsers.
I'm now being asked to put 'tips' at the beginning of each module. I am a tad bit frustrated by this thinking. Can anyone give any insight as to what they would suggest?
Edited to add:
http://www.articulate.com/rapid-elearning/do-you-really-need-instructions-on-how-to-use-an-e-learning-course/ is similar to what I'm talking about, and I can relate to it. I guess my issue is the LMS itself causing issues, not Articulate.
