5 Ss for Learner-Centric Media
Start with the skills or behaviors you’re going to teach the learner. “Today we’re going to [do a thing]…” If you can’t phrase your content this way, it’s probably not going to make for great learning. Learners must know how success is shown or measured in order to learn.
Five minutes per unit maximum. When was the last time you paid perfect attention to an hour-long educational video? Never, that’s when. If you’ve got too much material for five minutes then you’ve got more than one piece of content to make.
Don’t add elements like decorative graphics, music, or anything else just to “make the learning fun.”
DO use graphics, animation, or sounds when they:
- Provide a clarifying example
- Show the steps in a process
- Demonstrate a relationship (especially charts)
- Show a transformation
DON’T use graphics, animations, or sounds:
- For decoration
- For simple illustration (random picture of a tree when you say “tree”)
This doesn’t mean you can’t use humor or have fun with your content. The goal is for everything you add to be both educational and interesting, not just one or the other.
Address your learners in the second-person singular (“you” not “you guys”). Remember that you’re speaking to one person at a time on the other side of that screen, not to a crowd. If you’re makinga. video, make “eye contact” with the camera as much as possible.
At the conclusion of your content, quickly summarize the steps in the process, concepts to consider, important things to remember, measures of success, etc. to leave the learner with a cohesive picture of what you’re trying to teach. For bonus points, send them to great resources to continue their learning journey on their own.
