SRTotD (Salesforce Random Thought of the Day): Trailhead

Do you feel that you can answer the “why’s” when you’re doing a Trailhead module?

Often I see: Find this, click this, choose this, enter this…

But then I ask myself: why choose this option specifically, what is this option actually doing behind the scenes?

Or: what about the other options available, what do they do?

Unfortunately, when the path to a Trailhead badge is linear and scripted, I believe we lose some context in the bigger picture regarding what we’re actually trying to accomplish and learn.

I guess the psychology of providing just enough information to feel a sense of accomplishment versus providing too much to feel overwhelmed comes into play…
