Faster-better-cheaper > you can't have all three! Efficiency comes from better quality

BBC Academy 'Learning Design: a New Framework' - Winner Excellence in the Production of Learning Content - Public Sector

Thoroughly profiled 'tribes' i.e. different audiences within BBC

Engaged learners' emotions

Got them to care enough to learn

Developed 'Awareness + Resource' rather than courses

Less 'teacherliness' more authenticty - real-world activities

'Push' learning e.g. compliance - higher production values

'Pull' learning e.g. quick reference and how-tos - lower production values
