4/17/08 – Mentoring SMEs April 18, 2008

Posted by Noelle Archambeau in e-SIG Presentations, Intructional Design.

Last night Nathan Eckel, Owner of Intelligent Design Concepts, and Jeff Ronald, Founder/Director of Pinnacle Health Solutions, discussed how they were able to successfully collaborate to create an e-learning course on tobacco cessation. Nathan (ID expert) taught Jeff (SME) the basics of the ADDIE model, how to write learning objectives, and how to keep learners engaged. By empowering Jeff with these basic instructional design skills, he and Nathan were able to develop the course in less time, with less rework, and with less headaches than if they had not formed this partnership. Nathan has coined this ID/SME partnership “Open Source ID”.
