Ask Yourself These Questions Before You Launch Your Elearning

Typos, grammatical errors and misspelling can put off your learners. Other larger technical issues and seemingly minor issues that appear in eLearning content can actually lead to serious consequences. Before publishing in haste just to increase eLearning course completion rates, it is a good idea to have others review it.

Here are some common questions to ask before your eLearning course goes live to your learners. Finding answers to these questions will help you ensure that you have included all the necessary aspects for the eLearning course to be successful.

Are there any grammatical errors? Grammatical errors, improper use of apostrophes and misspelling can lay a huge risk on your credibility and you may lose your learners as result. It is vital to double check your course content so that it is free from grammatical errors, spelling mistakes and typos.

Is the navigation clear? Most of the times navigations are locked with the fear that the learner may keep clicking the next button and skip to the end of the course, without actually going through the content. Opening the navigation of your eLearning courses is a key to keep your learners engaged and motivated and it enables them to explore and read the content that is specific to their needs.

Make sure that your course includes the intuitive navigations learners look for, and that’s immediately clear to the learner as to what to do next by providing clear instructions.

Is the course visually appealing? A white screen with full of bullet points does not attract the learners’ attention. They get attracted to visually appealing screens, as they tend to pop out and get their attention. Visual representation in the course can simplify complex information in a way that is more quickly and easily understood by the learners.

Before your eLearning course is rolled out to the learner, ensure that your course is visually appealing in a way that attracts the learner’s attention.

How sticky is your eLearning? Using interactivities in eLearning helps to engage your learner more effectively. They allow learners to connect with the content, leading to richer and more meaningful learning experiences.

Before you launch your eLearning course ensure that it is sticky enough to engage learners.

Does the content align with the learning objectives? When content is not relevant to the learner, the entire course leads to monotony and boredom.

So before your eLearning goes live to the learners make sure that your course content is aligned with the learning objectives.
