    LOVE the new word “clicktivities” 🙂

    Hi Norman,
    Are you right? Absolutely!
    How do you communicate that to people who know nothing about learning or learning technologies though?

    I like your distinction between “user controls” and “interactivity.” Click to Learn exercises are so often billed as interactive exercises, but they’re little more than a way of chunking up the content (which is fine, too).

    Great post Norman. As instructional designers, we take short cuts to add ‘clicktivities’ and hope the course is interactive. We have a similar predicament when we use the word ‘engaging’ and try and add media elements to make the content engaging. John Grisham and Harry Potter are engaging and these don’t have any media elements.
