A user manual can be used to learn about a product or can be used to create a product and these are two very different tasks.
SCENARIO: A training manager is frustrated with the quality of communication among the trainees in his face-to-face training sessions and wants to try something new: deliver the training using a blended learning format.
What has lead him to believe that using a blended learning format will solve the problem he has identified? Has he analyzed his learners? Does he understand the differences between these delivery modes? Is he familiar with the instructional design process?
The user guide I have created for this assignment provides an overview of distance learning -- it is meant to be read, remembered and discarded (but hopefully retained for reference). It does not provide step-by-step instructions to convert the face-to-face training to blended delivery format. That would be covered in a separate user guide.
