Finally, some practical thought.. In Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development: Paper-based Learning - DIY Job Aids Brent takes a realistic look that sometimes good old paper based job aids and gives us some good tools.
This is a sore spot for me as I try to sell including a 'paper based' take-away item in a training I'm designing. The overall training program is a highly interactive system training that includes videos, help systems, 'test-out' options, and practice environments. We've discovered a need for an easy 'take away' cheat sheet (something that can be attached to a monitor) so people can be reminded what menu to use for top tasks..
Many are so wanting virtual only training, that even the thought of a small reminder job aid to help during the transition is shot down.
Never underestimate the power of the tangible item in your learner's hands.
