Trends in Content Dev: Invited Talk (Margaret Driscoll)
Margaret Driscoll, IBM Global Services, USA
Evolution of Corporate Training Models: Course Centric > Knowldge Centric >> D-I-Y
D-I-Y model is similar to the library model of learning. Train the learner to learn, then aide the learning with a librarian (informatician).
Corporate training spends 2/3rds of the dollar on administrative purposes alone. The new DIY model, per the presenter, eliminates the need for instructional design. It sounds shocking, but makes sense because when the learner is the explorer who stitches knowledge together, there is no need to make the courseware userfriendly and effective. I disagree, instructional design, in the sense of usability will be essential to use the resources.
