Gagne's 9 Events of Instruction

September 7, 2016

Have you ever had to train somebody on a software or new skill? If so, you know already that it's not as easy as you would expect. People have different learning styles so how do you present the information so that learning will be effective?

No worries, Gagne has solved that for you.


Robert Gagne (1916-2002) was an educational psychologist who lead the science of instruction in the 1940s. His book, The Conditions of Learning, first published in 1965, identified the mental conditions for learning. These were based on the information processing model of the mental events that occur when adults are presented with various stimuli. 


Gagne created a nine-step process that detailed each element required for effective learning. This process is known as "Gagne's 9 Events of Instruction" or "Gagne's 9 Conditions of Learning".


E-Learning Heroes Challenge #142 is to design a short demo to help e-learning designers learn more about Gagne's 9 Events of Instruction. In my contribution I am showcasing  an example of using motion paths, layers and various animation triggers. Software used is Articulate Storyline.
