I find her book to be very insightful. She presents issues with e-learning that I had not considered before, and provides new outlooks on common obstacles of knowledge acquisition and motivation. Not only based on her experience, Dirksen references recent and relevant research studies to support her arguments. She takes relevant theories such as Roger’s Diffusion of Innovations, and shows the reader how to apply its concepts to an e-learning design. The tone of the book is relaxed, knowledgeable and humorous, making it an easy read for anyone in the field. “Design for How People Learn” is a great complement to the typical e-learning course, as it presents valid issues and applicable solutions not usually discussed in textbooks.
