ID Tips I Don’t Want to Forget

Instructional design tips from web media experts Elisabeth and Eric Freeman:

  • Make it visual
  • Put the words within or near the graphics
  • Use a conversational and personalized communication style
  • Get the learner to think more deeply
  • Get and keep the reader’s attention
  • Touch their emotions; authenticity equates to intimacy
  • Repetition is key

I took these notes on the different teaching tricks the Freemans were modeling as they wrote their Head First book, HTML with CSS & XHTML (published by O’Reilly)
