“Creativity is borderless thinking, clipped in the right places to fit the problem template, so that the result is an effective and efficient solution.” – SRA

In the world of today, if there’s anything that cries out the loudest for creativity, it is the act of transferring knowledge. Instructional design combines creativity with logic to build content that enables the audience to acquire the promised skill. Logic being the more objective of the two dimensions is easier to implement. However, it is the creative use of a specific learning medium’s abilities that requires more attention. It is the creative dimension of ID, which separates acceptable courses/trainings from great ones. Creative Agni is an attempt to combine the two important dimensions of instructional design and illustrate their potency through its various activities.

Creative Agni's eZine

Creative Agni - The Instructional Design and eLearning eZine

The Creative Agni eZine for Instructional Design and eLearning is an attempt to help the training designers, elearning content developers, online facilitators, and classroom trainers, recognize this power of creative thinking within them and restore it to make their content and training programs instructionally effective.

In this rapidly changing world, where elearning content development is fast transforming into content mass-production; where teaching has changed into a faint sliver of what it used to be; and where trainings are being avoided, or worse still… force-fed to an uninterested audience – we are losing that creative spark, which could ignite the passion for knowledge in the minds of our learners. The pace at which we work, the pressure of the deadlines that we run to meet, and a general environment of apathy makes us disregard the creative element in Instructional Design. We need to apply creative thinking to the design and development of content.

Creativity has to work alongside logic to create instructionally effective content. It doesn’t matter where the content lies on the learning medium continuum – this is the reality of all types of content…from WBTs through Blended Learning to Instructor-led Classroom Trainings!
