Note: The following is a half-baked idea that I am trying to get worked out in my mind....
I am thinking of creating some learning objects on creating rapid learning content. The course would be a self-paced, short series on the what, when, and how of creating rapid learning content. I was brainstorming the course outline and thought I would reach out to the blogesphere to see if anyone had and feedback on the outline. At this point I am not even sure that the terms "rapid learning content" or "rapid elearning" or rapid response training" are appropriate, or interchangeable, or what... (I said it was half-baked). But I would like to create a training session that would allow trainers or teachers to think about when they would use a tool like Zoho Show, VoiceThread or Viddler vs using a more elaborate content development tool like Authorware or Flash.
I am completely sure that this outline will dramatically change, but here it is for your comments and ideas. Thanks!
