Humor in Instructional Writing – It’s No Laughing Matter


Learnnovators, a leading e-learning company in India, has published “Humor in Instructional Writing – It’s No Laughing Matter” as the latest edition of their blog post.

In this article, Srividya Kumar, their Co-Founder, explores a few tips we can use to incorporate a little bit of humor into our instructional writing projects!

Here’s an excerpt from the post:

“Engagement in learning comes in many shapes and forms, but here, we will talk about perhaps one of the most underutilized of forms – humor… Remember that it’s totally okay if no one laughs at the humor in your course, because our end goal is to teach, not to tickle their funny bone. But if it gets in the way of learning, then by all means, dial it back.”
