Even if you find published metrics, I would recommend your SME ignore them and instead time himself on a couple of practice runs.  Even something like how a person turns a page in the script can cause time to pile up in the long run.  And in a practice he may identify places where additional thoughts about the material come to mind.  Those could be added to the presentation.  Nothing spurs thought about how to do something better than actually doing it.

Is there any metric about how many pages of lecture equal how much time in class? Is a 25 page lab (with copious screen prints) enough for a 3-hour class?


I'm not designing the class, only helping out with formatting and layout, but some of the lecture notes seem a bit thin to me, and I don't know how to pass on this kind of feedback to my SME. (who is writing the class based on an outline that some third person, unknown, created - and since the outline is published, we have to stick with it.)

 
Regards,
Becca
