In this chapter we'll look at a simple model for converting our click and read content into something more interactive. We're still working with the DIYTC course, but rather than dumping the information on the learner, we're now asking the learner to reflect and choose their moves in a flat tire situation.
What's really great about this model is we don’t have to drastically rework the original content. You'll see that by making a few simple changes to the content, we moved the course to something more interactive and challenging for the learner.
Two of the biggest differences are in how the content is presented and how the learner navigates the course.
Why Rapid Situational Interactive?
- Rapid – It’s rapid because it can work from existing linear content. The content is reworked into questions with choices and feedback.
- Situational – Everything is framed around a situation or mini-scenario. Rather than telling the learner how to use information, the learner is put into a situation where they’re asked to make decisions.
- Interactive – It’s interactive because the navigation is based on reflection and decision-making
In the next lesson we'll take a quick look at how RSI works by looking at the Question-Feedback slides and learn why RSI is nothing but a giant next button.
