I am working on a mentoring program for new instructional designers and I built this sample program in Captivate to help them understand the basics of learning theories.

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!

Thanks for sharing. This is so informative. The only suggestion is to use more graphics and make it more engaging for the learners. But overall, excellent work!

Thank you for simplifying the  application of  learning theories to same activity to enhance participant learning.

Thank you very much for making a project on  such an important topic. Your project helps to understand how different learning theories can be used for the same activity, simply beautiful,

Thank you for simplifying the application of  learning theories and  sharing your project. I have understood a lot from your simple project. Your project shows how these theories can be applied to same activity in different ways.

It’s always great to brush up on these theories in order to create the best content.

I really liked the way in which the progress of each of the topics is presented, so that the person who is learning can identify his or her progress.

Thanks for sharing. I learned a lot from this project. The learning activity portion was very informative. It was good to see how different learning theories would approach the same activity.

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”.

People say that learning styles are myth. But, I do not agree with it. There is a tremendous research on learning styles, and its measurements.
