This is because the material is being built with almost zero pedagogical considerations. There is no consideration of the user or their environment, their learning, their attention span- nothing. Instead our online tutorials have the look and feel of that dreaded monotone professor from our undergrad days who everyone knew would rather be anywhere than lecturing a bunch of students on 16th century Dutch mercantilism. If you think back to your undergraduate days and think about those professors who were popular and beloved you will notice that they were all engaging and related the material to their students. After all, the content is essentially the same, so why is one teacher or speaker so much more engaging? Because they relate it to their audience on the audience's terms. Facts are contextualized.
Which is what I have done in this tutorial on the library of congress classification system. Moreover, I embedded the learning into a storyline that the vast majority of students can relate to. Please click the link, go to the tutorial titled "Finding Books" and play through it to see what I mean. You will notice that I never use the words "test" or "quiz". Instead I embed the learning in a natural story that students have experienced. Plus, it is a "game", meaning the student controls the flow of the story and what happens to a certain extent. I have contextualized the learning using real world scenarios that the target demographic will recognize as authentic and engaging.
I am so confident in the superiority of this type of online tutorial that I am starting a company to undercut the costly and ineffective products marketed by all the big companies. Our tutorials will be a series of stories with Information Literacy problems that the player has to solve. All the stories will be anchored in the real world experiences of millenial learners, and will have the same graphical interface students have become so accustomed to. We hope to have the first three tutorials developed by spring of next year. Pricing will be simple and cheap. If you are interested please contact me through my contact page and I will let you know as development moves forward.
