Design For How People Learn in Chinese

So, apparently there’s a chinese version of Design For How People Learn, which is delightful.



Apparently when you take a Cammy Bean quote, translate it into Chinese, and then let google translate turn it back into English, you get this marvelous wisdom:

‘If you let me fall in love with a book, then I would deeply in love with this present. Julie Dirksen prepared for the beginner a most excellent book, so that they can be like the old bird as instructional design. “

– Cammy Bean, Kineo, vice president of learning design 

How great is that?  Be like the old bird, people.

Coming up next: A Russian version in September 🙂

Update – here’s the Russian Version available for pre-order:



There’s no Cammy Bean quote, but run the title through Google Translate and it comes out:

“Art of teaching – How do any training not boring and effective.”

Well, okay then.

    • That *would* be awesome.

      According to my friend Lester, the chinese characters used to sound out my last name mean “Virtue Restrain Forest.”

  1. Love the “old bird” connection.
    I am taking Java from a wonderful “old bird” (he is not that old, and not bird-like, but he is a master craftsman of teaching, or perhaps even better than that almost a master craftsman so he doesn’t quite make it look easy, so I am drawn to analyze what he does)… and had to coin a new term to describe how he approached teaching us about what “object oriented” is all about.

  2. I like it )
    I am reading this book in russian now) Very interesting and very easy to read
    And the title is very suitable. the google correctly translated 🙂
    thank you
