Content creation has always been of the touchier subjects for organizations that are flexing up to enter into an endeavor of training themselves. What is the best approach to do it? Numerous papers, articles, thought-leadership-content and other attractive sounding content has been created on the art of creating content. The mild circularity of the statement aside, the arguments are far from being decisive. The age-group, cultural preferences, skill-levels, target purpose are various parameters that are weighed, rationed and endlessly debated about before not arriving to any concrete conclusion.
The best of Instruction Designers of course know how to tailor their courses well enough to optimally fit over the largest group that you would want to train. But even that best case scenario is tough to achieve. With the growth of skill mobility, you have all the aforementioned variables fluidly change within a single learning group. The result? For one training session on say, the HR policy of the organization, even if you restrict the participants to interaction designers only, you may still have multiple age-groups, radically different cultural preferences and different specialties. The result? If your training speaks about the life insurance perks but not the attractive restaurant coupons, the younger age-group may mysteriously fall sick for the next few sessions. It is in fact a headache to create content that fits well with everyone and achieves the elusive purpose of disseminating knowledge.

This granularity often allows you to play with a LO as if it is a brick in a bigger knowledge structure. Or perhaps, another way to understand them is to say that a LO is one dish in a huge buffet dinner. The one dish can also be eaten independently and would satisfy some hunger.
