What does it take to ensure your e-learning course improves employee performance to achieve the desired business goals? You have to see that the training you provide is effective. Training design and development starts after you identify and define performance gaps and training needs. When instructional designers settle down to create course content, the most important thing they do is frame learning objectives. But, what are learning objectives and why are they important in developing e-learning courses?
A learning objective is a precise and explicit statement that describes, in measurable terms, what the learner will be able to do after taking a course. They help guide learners along the right track in the course and keep them aligned with the expected outcomes. They also help define the scope of the course, instructional strategy, evaluation methodology, duration of the course, and cost of the course.
