Adventures in Learning Design

A series of conversations about ideas, principles, research and practice. Join the LearnJam team as they explore how to make learning more effective and enjoyable, whether it's in the workplace, in school, university or at home.

Feb 9, 2021

In this episode, Tim and Laurie speak to Jo Sayers, fellow co-founder of LearnJam, about how (and why) he uses Agile product development methodologies to develop digital learning products and solutions.

We thought it'd be great to have a chat with Jo to find out a bit more about his approach and to see what advice he has for anyone looking to learn more about Agile and how it can be put into practice.

In our conversation, we covered:

  • What Agile actually is and what an Agile project looks like.
  • How to manage a backlog and why it's important.
  • What makes a good user story and how to write one.
  • Why we use Agile in our Learning Design projects.
  • The challenges of applying Agile, and some pro tips.
