After teaching hundreds of teachers to teach online, I've come to the conclusion that many won't learn how to chunk information on a page or write web friendly instructional materials based on simple modeling alone. I've assumed that seeing materials laid out in a web friendly manner, would cause e-learning teachers in training to to create materials using the principles outlined below.
Some catch on. They break text into clear short paragraphs. They use keyword headings, they write for scanning instead of deep reading.
However most don't get this seemingly simple idea. I hope this post helps more grasp the essentials of online writing!
ps: note to self: figure out how to make blogger fonts consistent! 8-)
