A Checklist for Instructional Designers

THE MISSION

This week’s eLearning Challenge is “Show us How you Create Online Courses” which is designed to demonstrate your course development process or workflow.

THE INSPIRATION

I found a checklist online for Instructional Designers, I decided to use this information and keep this challenge short and sweet so that I would have time to update this blog, catch up with other challenges and to decide what to make for the upcoming Guru Awards.  I thought that my little list might be a little dull, so I decided to liven it up with colour and animation.  I found some vibrant colours on Adobe Color and added a twisted ribbon graphic for each point on the list.

THE PROCESS

The process pretty straight forward; it included some animation of the ribbons, state changes of the text, a page transition and a transparent player.


checklistTHE OUTCOME

I wasn’t sure how this challenge would turn out because I thought that the content lacked pizzazz, but I think that the colours, ribbon shapes and animation all combined to make an interesting checklist.  I found that you don’t always need an amazing image to draw attention to something simple like this list.  Sometimes just a few simple elements pack enough of a visual punch.  See for yourself.
