In the wake of David Anderson sharing his current count of #ELHChallenges by entrant, Kimberly Bourque asked “What’s your favorite challenge?” But how do you pick a favorite – and a favorite what? Favorite challenge idea? Favorite week of entries? Favorite design of your own? Though nearly impossible to choose, I’ve tried.
My 3 Favorite Challenges From David
I’ve learned something every single week from every single challenge, but these stand out for me.
#11: Design a Comic Book Theme. I loved this because unless David had made it a challenge I’d never have tried it. I ended up convinced that this style needs to be used far more often.
#39: Education Podcasts in Online Training. This was a great change of pace from the standard demo, and a true challenge since most of us had never created a podcast before.
#41: Hand Drawn E-Learning Courses. Again, this was an unusual challenge format that demanded a lot of creativity and I liked that we had to think in a very different way.
My 3 Favorite Challenges Where I Loved The Entries
Every week is a good week to see what everyone’s been up to, but these I found especially entertaining.
#41: Hand Drawn E-Learning Courses. I think the fact that this challenge required so much ingenuity made these entries truly fascinating.
#39: Education Podcasts in Online Training. How could you not love hearing your fellow challengees come to life before your very ears? The individuality and energy of it was great.
#32: Death, Taxes, and E-Learning Mistakes. For obvious reasons, checking out everyone’s chosen examples of bad e-learning was both fun and painful – but mostly fun.
3 Favorite Entries of My Own
This really is like choosing your favorite child – but here are three I love.
#63: Is Marsala a Good Color for George Washington? This one is so stupid I’m completely in love with it. Love the way it looks, the way it met the challenge, and the comments it elicited from readers.
#39: Dapper Dans & Pictograms. These guys make me so happy – plus I thought there was a lot of value to the post. I’m also noticing that I apparently like entries where I line up 4 guys in a row.
#37: Cop vs. Kid Spelling Bee. In the end, this one feels so wrong it just becomes right. It’s also the most trouble I’ve had producing challenge audio without laughing.
So what are your favorite #ELHChallenges?
