How To Brain Sync With A Subject Matter Expert SumoMe Short of performing a science fiction mind-meld, how can you efficiently transfer content from the brain of a subject matter expert (SME) into a form you can use? In case you’re new at this, instructional designers often interview subject matter experts to access their stream of knowledge. The Brain of a SME Working with a SME is unique, because by definition, this individual is an expert and most likely, you are a novice. You can think of working with a SME in three phases: Preparation, Interview and Follow-up. Phase 1: The Prep Work At all costs, don’t walk into a meeting with a SME knowing nothing about the subject. Request documentation and resources prior to the interview. Phase 2: The Interview Phase 3: Follow-up If your head is not exploding by the end of the interview, something probably went wrong.

eLearning Blunders Blunder: a stupid or careless mistake. Alternative words: mistake, error, gaffe, fault, slip, oversight, inaccuracy, botch. This post was inspired by David Anderson’s eLearning challenge: Death, Taxes and E-Learning Mistakes. The purpose of the challenge was to highlight blunders found in eLearning courses and Articulate Community members provided many great examples of what not to do. I wanted to bring these examples together and share them here (just in case you haven’t seen the challenge). Layout: Double branding of screens. Split attention (having to combine information together to make sense of it). ‘Previous’ button on the first slide and ‘Next’ button on the last slide. Many different backgrounds. All slide space filled. No contrast. No reuse of design elements (e.g. titles are all different). Poor positioning of screen elements. Menu items in the wrong order. Terrible, eye-searing colour scheme. No way to exit a layer. Being able to click on buttons on the base layer while viewing a layer.

Authentic Assessment Toolbox Home Page to the Authentic Assessment Toolbox, a how-to text on creating authentic tasks, rubrics, and standards for measuring and improving student learning. Inside, you will find chapters on A good place to start -- In this chapter I identify the characteristics, strengths and limitations of authentic assessment; compare and contrast it with traditional (test-based) assessment. Why has authentic assessment become more popular in recent years? When can it best serve assessment needs? After a brief overview, follow a detailed, four-step process for creating an authentic assessment. All good assessment begins with standards: statements of what we want our students to know and be able to do. Authentic assessments are often called "tasks" because they include real-world applications we ask students to perform. To assess the quality of student work on authentic tasks, teachers develop rubrics, or scoring scales. A guide to constructing good, multiple-choice tests, to complement your authentic assessments

LabSpace - The Open University Beginning Instructional Authoring: Getting the Content You Need from SMEs, Part 1 by Patti Shank “Many eLearning designers and developers will say that it’s impossible to train SMEs to use the same tools that we use but I think that’s a ridiculous notion. Rapid development tools were made for SMEs to use. Many of us use PowerPoint as our initial development tool and many SMEs can use PowerPoint. And let’s face it, many trainers and instructional designers were once SMEs.” It’s an inside joke in the eLearning world. This situation is a common one and it’s a problem that has an obvious solution: Be much more specific about exactly what you need. Getting specific Here’s an example from real life. Table 1. The main idea here is to give SMEs more direction in the content that you want them to provide so that both you and the SME are less frustrated. Text content templates Since textual content is one of the most common items we want SMEs to provide, I’ll start by discussing ways to focus SMEs efforts on the exact text content we want. Figure 1.
