Hey, it’s just me again! Hope that you have been keeping up to date on my posts and digging for some nuggets of information on your own. Anyways, I love reading and I enjoy sifting through interesting blogs. I’m not only interested in elearning, I also love blogs where I can learn how to make or do something really cool.
Today, I was doing a bit of research on “INTERACTIVITY“. As an instructional designer, I’m always looking for ways to up the anti for my course development. In my search, I ran across a blog that made me stop, read and — you guessed it — Interact. The blog is called Knewton Blog and the post that made me stop in boots was ” How to Make and Interactive Lesson Using Youtube”
The concept was simple and made me think – Why didn’t I think of that….
I’ve included their Youtube Video below. Basically what they’ve done is create one video that serves as a menu, where the learner chooses a topic right within the video. When they click, they are taken to another video that presents a GMAT question (yes, the dreaded GMAT – never want to do that again). Then they employee a scaffolding technique which is pretty cool if you ask me.
Enough of my blather – check it out for yourself.
