Instructional Design — Lockstep Instruction
This platform has the learners proceeding at the same pace. It requires fewer instructors and is normally more easily managed than self-paced platforms. One of its main advantages from a learner's point of view is that it is highly social in nature.
It is often the medium of choice for most training sessions. One of the main disadvantages often leveled at lockstep is that the pace is set for average learners. . . but, there are no average learners as we all have special learning requirements and styles. However, you can adapt to individual learning differences when they are having difficulty with the task as lockstep is NOT robot training. Yes, everyone goes along at basically the same pace, but having skilled instructors allows a great deal of adaptability in this type of environment.
