8 Different Ways to Present Learning Objectives in E-learning Courses

As we know, learning objectives play a vital role in an eLearning course as they create interest in learners by sharing what they will be able to accomplishafter completing the course.

According to Robert Mager, a learning objective is a statement in specific and measurable terms that describes what the learner will know, or be able to do, as a result of engaging in a learning activity. But,in most cases, we present learning objectives in the form of abulleted list.This may not always be effective.

I have tried different ways of presenting learning objectives and would like to share a few of them with you today.

1. Provide an image for each learning objective

It is a good practice to provide an image for each learning objective and make sure that these images are aligned with the content.

2. Ask questions before stating the learning objectives

Don’t state the learning objectivesdirectly;thisis not very effective in capturing the learner’s attention. Instead, pose a series of questions related to the content and make him think about the answers. You can name this screen as “What’s in It for Me?”
