The Death of the Page Turner: Deal With the Application First

Title: The Death of the Page Turner: Deal With the Application First

Author: Mike Sullivan and Michael Gardner

Abstract:
Many designers and subject matter experts default to “knowledge first, application last” as the pattern for e-Learning. But is this always the right way to go? In this week’s article, two experienced designers offer another view, one that starts with a job simulation, allows learners to guess and make mistakes, and builds in interactivity through performance. This approach not only provides a welcome change of pace, but it also improves learner performance on the job.
