Top Posts – at least so far

In preparation for the BlogWorld and New Media Expo event this week, I decided to pull a list of top 5 posts on this blog. The posts linked below have had the most number of views so far.

  • Figuring Out Facebook – This post makes the list because it was picked up by All Tech Considered and as a result it had a big day. (Thank you Andy Carvin and NPR!) What helped was a list of other posts that came to me via Twitter that day, all addressing overnight privacy changes.
  • Instructional Design Documents – Prompted by a name change on the blog itself, this post provides a brief description of an instructional design document and includes a list of links to examples from different education and training organizations.
  • Course Design – Start with an Outline – This post includes a simple tool to get the course revision process going. The outline results in a one or two page guide for moving forward – practical application and a visual example.
  • Instructional Design and Project Management – Are You Certified? – Great comments here on the pursuit of professional certification in project management and how it may or may not be beneficial for an Instructional Designer.
  • Rubrics. Yes? No? Maybe… – Sparked by an exchange in an online book club this post outlines some of the pros and cons for using rubrics to assess student work in an academic course.

While total number of views is not necessarily the best metric for creating a ‘top’ list, I can see that this group of posts does have common elements – they address topics that were timely and provide  information and examples for practical application. A more in depth inventory is in the works and will be informed no doubt by the sessions and presenters at BlogWorld.
