  • instructor" courses. When I took their training, I knew absolutely nothing about ToolBook and so it was a great way to come up to speed quickly. I still reference the CD for more advanced topics that I didn't use initially.
  • I also have effectively used the Learning & Mastery CD from Platte Canyon for my own learning.
  • I've got to second Jocelyn's recommendation for "Learning and Mastering ToolBook Instructor"! A great product from every perspective. The L&M module itself is an excellent example of what you can accomplish using ToolBook. The content is very comprehensive and laid out in a way that even the greenest ToolBooker can follow while not boring the more experienced user. I've learned an awful lot just by browsing the code and trying to understand all the things that make this little jewel tick. As I don't have a formal programming background, it's been an excellent reference in learning to code the *right* way.
  • From an instructional design standpoint, I think it's a wonderful example of one school of instructional design: Laying out objectives, making sure you teach to them, using testing points along the way to make sure people are focusing on the important concepts, providing summary views, practice exercises, show me examples, along with a summative evaluation. I think there are other instructional design models, some relying upon more inferential and exploratory techniques, but I think they've chosen a very good approach given the topic. And I think they've done it in a way that works.
  • The Learning & Mastering... is one fine product. Our employees are fairly experienced ToolBook CBT developers, but they really like the training package from you folks!
