10 Issues in a Learning System: 4) Order
The order in which content is presented to your learners is another crucial aspect of a learning system. It seems rather obvious that content ought to be taught in a logical order, but again, teachers’ enthusiasm can wreak havoc, or a complex subject can mislead teachers into sorting it out in irregular pieces—maybe works of literature in order of purported importance, and later of time periods, confused with historical events. Sometimes, even if teachers disseminate their material in an organized fashion and in the correct order, a learner might disagree with the order of this learning system and restructure the content for him or herself.
The possibilities for needless confusion in a learning system are endless. Most plausible solution: Convey content in an easily digestible order.
