The Instructional Method is useful for creating Lifeology courses when the objective is to provide clear and universal messages on basic science and health topics relevant to a broad audience. For example, we are using the Instructional Method to create a library of courses that help people understand what clinical trials are and how they work. We’ve also used this method to create courses that explain what a CT scan is and what to expect when getting one, how to measure one’s blood pressure at home, how a specific medicine works and more.
The Instructional Method relies on existing curated and verified science and health knowledge. It also doesn’t involve the same research and attention to audience-specific questions, concerns, barriers and lived experiences that Lifeology Originals do. But for certain topics, the Instructional Method is the more efficient method for Lifeology course creation that doesn’t sacrifice content value.
