Different Ways to Present Learning Objectives in Elearning

“If you don’t know your destination, it does not matter which way you take”. In the same way, in the context of eLearning, it is important to set your learning objectives for which you are developing the eLearning, in order to achieve the end results.

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.

An ideal learning objective has 3 components: performance, condition and criteria.

  • Performance: Is a description of the behavior that learners are expected to perform.
  • Condition: To state an objective clearly, sometimes a condition becomes necessary.
  • Criterion: Lets learners know how well they will have to perform to be considered competent.

One of the common ways of presenting learning objectives is to show them in the form of a bulleted list.
