Hey Folks — the second edition of Design For How People Learn is now out! It came out right before the end of the year. I’ll be updating the website this week.
Design for How People Learn, 2nd Edition
The first edition content is still mostly there. I expanded on a few points about motivation and skill development, but the main change is the addition of three new chapters:
- Design for Habits
- Social and Informal Learning
- Designing Evaluation
Both the social/informal material and the evaluation material are things that probably should have been in the first edition and weren’t (fixed that!), and the habit chapter reflects a change in my own practice — I’ve been finding it useful to call out habit formation separately when doing analysis and design.
Where can I get it?

If I already have the first edition, do I need to get this one too?
Not necessarily (don’t tell my publisher I said that), but if you’d like to get around buying a whole new copy, here are some other resources:
