Instructional Designers In Offices Drinking Coffee

Reading Digital Body Language - It's the New A in Your ADDIE Model: With Special Guest Jo Cook

Episode Summary

In the past, teachers were responsible for “reading the room” and “getting a feel” for how learners were responding. But todays technologies help us discover more about them through their digital body language. Digital Body Language is more than just how you look on your webcam. That’s analog body language as seen through the webcam lens…and it’s important. But did you know that everything you do online tells us…them…someone… a little more about you and what your needs are, or might be? This has been the realm of digital marketing for decades, but it’s important to instructional designers as well. The learning experiences we create are part of a larger learning experience for the user. They may attend a virtual classroom session, take a self-paced eLearning course, and consume short videos to refresh the learning. And they’ll also be joining communities and chatting with peers about the same content. All of those contribute to learning and using analytics we can use data to discover what they need.
