A ‘Learning Process’, involves acquiring knowledge and skill by study, practice, education and experience. In traditional classroom training, learners are involved in group projects, exercises, scenarios, case studies etc., that facilitate the learning process. In an e-learning course, these experiences have to be created online to facilitate effective knowledge transfer.
Each learner learns differently. What is exciting to one may not be so to another. Online courses have to strike a balance to ensure that they have something for every learner. Un-inspiring online courses may not receive the participation from learners as desired. It is very essential that the learner exerts the willingness to learn as non-participation hampers learning.
For the purpose, a learner-centric approach needs to be adopted to achieve the learning objectives. Learner centric approach broadly defines the methods of teaching in the way that is understood by the learner keeping in mind his competency levels. This is done by connecting with him at physical, emotional and intellectual levels during the learning process. This knowledge plays an important role when designing online courses. Let’s see more about this in the following infographic.
