Quality vs. Speed

Out of 24 participating posts and nearly 40 comments on those posts, not a single person predicted that they would answer all 12 of The Big Questions in 2007 - how disappointing.

Well your first chance to redeem yourself comes in the form of January’s The Big Question:

What are the trade offs between quality learning programs and rapid e-learning and how do you decide?

Please answer this question by posting to your own blog.

(For further help in how to participate via blog posts, see the side bar.)

Points to consider:

  • Quality learning experiences involve having fun, better interactivity in e-Learning or interacting with fellow learners, possible use of games or simulations, richer blends, but designing and developing higher quality programs cost more and take longer.
  • Rapid e-Learning often involves paring back training to the minimum amount and minimal treatment, quickly building those training elements, and providing the remainder of content as reference. This reduces time and cost and may improve scalability because the skills required for development can be easily spread.
  • Most every learning project involves deciding what to treat in what way. So, what ends up on the design room floor by the time of implementation? What are the potential risks of these decisions? Has there been fat that could be cut without risking quality?
