How to create interactivity in online training | TechRepublic

How to create interactivity in online training | TechRepublic | C21 learning: ideas and tools for teachers | Scoop.it

By Laura Summers

Online learning needs to be more than just page turning.

 

While taking a course on how to create a secure commerce network, Mike scrolled through Web page after Web page. He found himself getting bored and wondering how he was going to remember all this new information. When was he going to be able to apply what he was reading?

 

Mike’s story is a prime example of ineffective online training that doesn’t engage the learner. Imagine, instead, an online course that mimics a real computer network where Mike can work through a Web-based simulation to diagnose a network problem. In this scenario, he is applying his new skills in a real-life context. Then, imagine an online learning community where Mike can talk to experts in the IT field, access job aids, and e-mail questions to a course mentor or tutor.

Designing Aesthetically Pleasing Moodle Courses

Designing Aesthetically Pleasing Moodle Courses | C21 learning: ideas and tools for teachers | Scoop.it

When you’re working online and you access a text heavy web-page that scrolls for 5 pages, what is your initial reaction?

 

It is important that an online course not overwhelm or discourage a student. A text heavy page filled with a long list of resources and activities is not inviting or enticing.

 

With a little slight of hand, use of the right resource formats and labels, you can design an aesthetically pleasing online course, avoiding the long scrolling webpage.

Marc My Words: eLearning Myths, Part 1 by Marc J. Rosenberg : Learning Solutions Magazine | C21 learning: ideas and tools for teachers | Scoop.it

There's much to be learned from paying attention to the corporate side of e-learning. ~ Dennis

This month we look at five myths related to eLearning design, development, and deployment.

Myth #1: You can easily convert great classroom training to great online training. Myth #2: A great authoring tool (or suite of tools) is all you need to create great eLearning. Myth #3: eLearning must be fun. Myth #4: Many employees don’t finish eLearning courses; therefore the courses must be bad. Myth #5: Getting the technology to work is the hard part.
