August Big Question - Feedback

The Learning Circuits' Big Question for August is to provide feedback on the "Big Question" itself. I have a high opinion of it and have always enjoyed reflecting on the questions posed and reading the responses posted.

One of the goals of the Big Question is to "Get different perspectives on topics that are of interest to workplace learning professionals." I feel the Big Question achieves that goal. General questions are fine, but I feel it has really excelled when the topics address very specific challenges or solicit practical advice. This provides not just perspectives, but valuable solutions. Here are just a few some examples that I have found beneficial.

Choosing Tools

Economic Impact

Getting Unstuck

Where are the Examples

ILT and Off-the-Shelf Vendors

So, while I always enjoy the Big Question, my feedback is to focus on very specific issues and challenges we face in e-learning and less general questions. With all the people participating, it is a great opportunity to tap into the collective knowledge and skills possessed; all focused on solutions for a common issue.

Here a few issues I would like to see addressed in future Big Questions.

  • Working effectively with subject matter experts

  • What is your approach to evaluating e-learning courses?

  • Making a highly interactive course in spite of low bandwidth

  • What should not be taught online?

My apologies if any of these or similar topics have already been addressed. I must have missed that month.

I always look forward to the Big Question. So, a big thank you to Learning Circuits.
