eLearning Course Essentials
Have you ever created an elearning module that wasn’t well-received by your audience? One of the most common reasons for this is a lack of organization and clarity in the content. In order to ensure that your learners are able to follow along and understand the material, it’s important to create an outline or framework for your module. In addition, an outline can also be used as a reference tool for future revisions or updates. So, how do you go about creating an effective outline for your next elearning module? Let’s take a look!
Every elearning module needs an outline, also known as an overview or a framework. The outline provides the user with an overview of the elearning journey from start to finish. A suggested overview for an elearning module is: Cover Page, Contents Page, Learning Objectives, Chapter headings, Learning Content, Questions, Result Slide, Closing Side, Navigation Bar.
- The cover page should include the title of the elearning module with short description of the content to follow
- The contents page should list all the chapters in the elearning module and provide a brief description of each chapter.
- The learning objectives should be stated at the beginning of each chapter.
- The learning content should be divided into manageable sections with clear headings.
- Questions should be included throughout the elearning module to check understanding and consolidate learning.
- The result slide should state whether the learner has passed or failed the elearning module.
- The closing side should thank the learner for their time and effort.
- The navigation bar should be clearly visible and easy to use. By including these elements in an elearning module, users will be able to navigate their way through the content easily and learn effectively.
A well-designed elearning module will have an outline or framework to help users understand the journey they are taking. This overview allows learners to see where they are in the learning process and what is yet to come. If you’re looking for a custom elearning solution, contact us today.
