Understanding Learner Preferences
I want to share a secret about online learners that you won’t hear anywhere else … The Toledo Law of 1/3’s.
The Digital Learning Zone Online Course Creation Blueprint has 5 phases: Define, Decide, Design, Develop, and Deliver. Click HERE if you need a copy.
During the Define phase of the process you zero in on the characteristics of the WHO your course serves. The Toledo Law of Thirds adds a unique perspective by identifying the environment in which your ideal student prefers to learn.
In the early 2000’s, as I was teaching more and more online courses and helping other faculty deliver their online courses, I started seeing that learners AND instructors fall into three categories … out of those observations I created the Toledo Law of Thirds.
So … which category best describes you?
We usually teach the way we’ve been taught. So becoming aware of our learning preferences can help us make sure that our courses are designed to meet the needs of all three groups of learners.
Now off with you … get busy on your course!
