Learning Theories course in Captivate 2019
I love the topic/concept, but I agree with some of the other suggestions to add more media. In addition to more pictures/visuals, I would also consider adding voice overs so it is not so text heavy. However, in spite of this I found it quite useful. Thanks for sharing!
These projects have all been fun to go through, but this is my favorite so far. Nice work. Unless I missed it (clicking thru too fast possibly), it would have been nice to have text on the two pictures for what age the learners are…I liked how each theory had if it applied to adults and/or children in the upper right.
Hi Wendy, I’m so glad to hear you liked this! Thanks for the feedback about the learner age. I had it grey out with mouseover to say “adults” and “children” and then I removed that and only have it in the alt text. I might integrate it into another box at the top of these to be more obvious. I appreciate the feedback!
Glad to see no mention of the “learning styles” (e.g. visual learning style, auditory learning style, etc.) It’s a total myth.

Yes, absolutely not! I’m dividing the content into a few different parts. This one is the overall andragogy. Next part I’m working is Bloom’s and Gagné and activity specific theory.
Since the learning styles myth is still weirdly controversial, I wasn’t planning to bring it up at all. If I’m asked, I’m definitely in the camp of “nope”.
