Quick Design Tip: the 80/20 rule


Stephan Schmidt (@ozesteph1992) who did this great set of Moodle design tutorials (link) had a great suggestion when it comes to planning/building your Moodle course.  I’m keen on aesthetics and quality flow within the online learning space (eliminate the learning curve of navigating your course, if possible by cutting the extraneous and providing easy access to where your students need to go) and I agree 100% with Stephan:

When it comes to building your course, you should allot your time as 80% planning/20% building starting from your syllabus.  If you don’t have a syllabus, you’re not ready for course building.

What are your design tips and tools of the trade for creating quality courses?
