5 Steps To Convert Existing Content into an eLearning Course Infographic
- Step 1: Analyzing Content
The first stage involves deciding what information would be most relevant to the course, which is best achieved through a content audit.
- Step 2: Determining Learning Objectives
Determining learning objectives helps designers determine what to include (or exclude) in their eLearning courses. Learning objectives also act as a guide before creators even begin designing the course by keeping the module in line with the current educational philosophy.
- Step 3: Choosing the eLearning Course Format
Some eLearning courses require just a basic format whereas others should be more advanced and interactive with a variety of media. Which type the developer chooses will depend on the type of content, the technological infrastructure available, the budget, the target audience, and learning context of the course.
- Step 4: Planning the eLearning Course
Just like face-to-face training, the success of an eLearning course comes down to planning — or instructional design. Developers need to think about what they are trying to achieve
- Step 5: Developing the eLearning Course
In this final stage of creating eLearning courses, developers need to choose a design method to meet the needs of the learners, and ensure the content and all its related activities are meaningful and relevant.
