Abstract

A key principle of minimalism is that people are engaged in real task. However, the real tasks of complex domains can be overwhelming for learners and unmanageable for instructional designers. Minimalism assumes that people engaged by a task will eventually reason and improve. It emphasizes getting learners started quickly. Because the tasks of complex domains tend to incorporate many subtasks, `getting started quickly' becomes more a sustaining interest and activity than of quickly dispatching a task.
