I stumbled upon the notion of a rubric while researching storyboard software. A rubric is a assessment tool used to rate or score something. By defining criteria ahead of time you create a standard of measurement for work done.
I thought a rubric could be a very useful for keeping lesson plans, marketing materials, etc on track and consistent with what we envision producing, especially when we’re tired and just want something to be finished. I threw together a totally crude example and attached.
@bradleytmorris and @andyfreist, a lot of what you’ve talked about are around criteria (eg. would I pay for this, is this part of the crowd, etc). Did you have formal list or guideline to keep you on track? Would something like a rubric helped you in the early stages of rapid evolving or lack of sleep?

Wow Lorraine, this is a fantastic demonstration. This certainly is a simple way to explain it.
Perhaps @andyfreist can turn this into a beautiful looking handout for everyone.
I take it these were all your ways of explaining what we’ve been teaching?
Tomorrow when I’m back in work mode I’ll write out the questions we kept coming back to to guide our process 🙂August 21, 2016 at 8:32 pm #29599
@bradleytmorris – it was a super rough stab at trying to give a practical example. If you look at these tips and other examples you guys could come up with a far more tailored version for e-course creation. (I suspect your guiding questions would make great areas for the left hand column.)August 22, 2016 at 3:09 pm #29635
Done.August 22, 2016 at 8:24 pm #29658
@bradleytmorris & @andyfreist – here’s the shell of a rubric when using your questions from “Don’t Build What The World Needs”
– What kind of eCourse would we have actually paid money for?
– What kind of learning experience would keep us excited and engaged?
– How would we want to be sold to when arriving at the website of this eCourse?
– How would we want our relationship to feel with the teacher of the course?
– If we were looking for this eCourse, what kind of results would we expect to get?
– How much would we have been willing to pay for this course?

Ahhh, thank you Lorraine, that is great that you dug those up! Yes, those are the questions we keep coming back to.
But now the questions are evolving.
We are starting to ask ourselves questions like:
How does this lesson invoke emotion?
How does this fit into the World we’re creating?
How can we make this point simpler and more straight forward?
Is what we’re saying here completely necessary or can we get rid of it or communicate it better?
Is what we’re saying here something that needs to be said OR should it be shown (like in a slide)?August 22, 2016 at 8:34 pm #29664
I love what you and Hardy have created here. Definitely gonna encourage folks on this week’s Coaching Campfire to do this exercise you’ve created for them!August 22, 2016 at 10:00 pm #29667
@bradleytmorris – your new set of questions are great for keeping consistency from module to module or any facet that is added. Those are the things that keep the bar high when the brain is fried and eyes are blurry. Can’t let yourself off the hook.August 23, 2016 at 7:07 am #29683
I didn’t create anything – I just whipped up a quick pdf of Lorraine’s sketch 🙂
