Tales of the Galactic Instructional Designers

Explainer videos are a great way to provide instructional content in bite-sized pieces. By using a little creativity, an explainer video can become an engaging tool for your course. The video below is designed to define instructional designer and explain the job on a basic level. Instead of using a typical approach, I chose to color outside the lines by creating an animated sci-fi video: The Tales of the Galactic Instructional Designers.

Narrator: “Welcome to the Tales of the galactic instructional designers! Their mission: to travel the galaxy and create instructional products that produce greater educational outcomes for extraterrestrial worlds. Let’s join our brave instructional designers as they work with the planetary Subject Matter Experts, to design or improve their instructional systems.”
