Rapid Prototyping Tips

On Thanksgiving, I was thinking about a Rapid Prototyping session I’m hosting at work next week and also how to make Pillsbury crescent rolls. I know it sounds easy, but for those of us who don’t make anything (literally nothing), little things like that can be challenging! Anyway, here’s where my thoughts ended up…

Many times Instructional Designers will gather content and then jump right into building a course (I did that early on, too – shhhh!). It’s almost like taking a guess that what they think is right actually is, with a limited chance for feedback and other perspectives, toward the end of development. And it never ends pretty.

But, there’s a better way! Rapid prototyping allows you to get input early on that will dramatically shape the end product and will save you tons of rework or from developing a mediocre course. The key is to create a very rough version quickly (a few hours – never days), share it with others to get their perspective, and keep adapting it until it’s pretty solid.
