Need tips for writing an e-courseViews: 339

bellascribe Hi Barb,
As an instructional developer, I approach an e-course in terms of first what is it that you want to teach, specifically, and who wants and who needs to learn it. Because you are looking at this from a product perspective with perhaps the idea of selling as much of it as you can, the starting point is more like who wants to learn what, specifically. The specificity is the important part. (Think more than one course). Once you've identified the body of knowledge you're passing on, you break it down into specific learning objectives, then decide how to meet each one in a way that addresses the learner's needs, motivation and enjoyment. You'll have to balance the enjoyment and the weight, or meat of the topic. There's a wealth of vehicles you can use; for example, a pre-quiz works well, which can be followed up with a post-course one. A post self-assessment of some kind is important, for the human being wants to know that they have learned something, gained knowledge: ROI. Your field is wide-open for a wealth of topics. I've developed e-courses and learning materials, etc, from the smallest to the biggest, for casual to most formal situation, and can tell you the basic principles (of human cognition, learning, motivation) applied are the most successful. This is getting too long, so feel free to contact me to talk more, if you like. I'm a little busy right now, but I *will* get back to you.
