MSTP for E-Learning: Parallelism

There is a beauty in these railway tracks.

It’s not just about the scenic landscapes they take us through, but the way they are structured too. The mathematical precision behind their ‘parallel’ architecture is what gives traction to the long, serpentine body of the train to slide over them at tremendous speed. Imagine a micrometer deviation in the architecture. You don’t need to fancy the consequence.

The lack of parallelism in the language – especially when we design e-learning courses – may not spell catastrophe of such enormous proportions. But, it definitely crucifies the beauty of aesthetics. For sure!
