5 Min of Style Notes: 08/15/12

Thanks to those who attended.

Today we discussed Claire England’s article “e-learning … It’s a sprint, not a marathon!”.

The article can be found by clicking here.

We made reference to the three points she outlined in her article:


  • Do you really need that? – Ruthlessly cutting through and culling back on information that isn’t really helpful to the learner.
  • Don’t be scared of the Resources folder – This tool is a great place to provide the detailed information.
  • Divide and Conquer – Bite-size units rely on careful divisions of content … make sure your units work as standalone sections.
