Reviewing Course Design Multimedia Concepts

Duration: 15 to 25 minutes.

In this exercise, you will use your knowledge of design elements to answer the following questions.

Keep in mind this scenario, from the previous lesson: You are working as an ID in your organization, and the head of human resources has come to your group with a specific need for the group to develop some training on working with difficult coworkers.

  1. What does the acronym CRAP stand for?
  2. In the HR course, you would like to use some video clips of experts speaking about morale and other concepts. What should you keep in mind?
  3. You want to show the steps for providing constructive feedback to employees. What visual element might you use to visually represent this?
  4. You are demonstrating a computer programming concept and need to show the code that the user should enter. What visual element might you use to represent this?
  5. You are designing a photography course would like to show a brief history of photography through the past 100 years. What visual element might you use to represent this?

Solution:

  1. Contrast, Repetition, Alignment, Proximity
  2. The clips should be short, so that they hold the learner's attention and do not overwhelm him or her with information.
  3. Answers will vary, but you could use a flowchart to illustrate the steps in the process, moving from restating the message, to offering criticism, to focusing on goals.
  4. Answers will vary, but it would be useful to use a screen capture to show the code on screen.
  5. Answers will vary, but you could include a timeline to show the sequence of events over the past 100 years.
