Here, I offer a close look at the successful eLearning development process that has been used by the instructional designers to enhance the learning experience of learners, for many years, in a nut shell. You can follow this process, while designing and developing an eLearning course.
- Set terminal learning objectives that are performance-based with clear conditions and criteria for achievement.
- Based on the above, select precise and relevant content.
- Develop a course outline by breaking down the course into modules, units, lessons, topics, and sub-topics.
- Set module-level enabling learning objectives.
- Re-purpose the content to suit the web, make it crisp and reader-friendly, place the ‘need-to-know’ content on screen and ‘nice-to-know’ under pop-ups, links etc.
- Present the content in a way that suits the subject and the learner. Every screen should consist at least one learning point.
- Use multiple engagement techniques.
- Decide the rapid authoring tools (Articulate Storyline, Captivate, Lectora and so on) that best cater to your specific requirements.
- Insert adequate practice activities with feedback after every learning point. Develop activities for reinforcement of learning at the end of every module.
- Develop pre-assessments and post-assessments that are aligned with the learning objectives and the content.
