Course Description

The course Introduction to E-Learning Theory and Practice is an overview of internationally recognised and research-based e-learning theory and methodologies for creating effective e-learning courses. The course begins by reviewing what is meant by the term "e-learning" and what the benefits are in creating e-learning content. The course then reviews the Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Development,

How learning occurs in a multimedia environment, and how to identify relevant course material using topic analysis and task analysis methodologies. You will learn about the importance of writing learning outcomes first when creating a course, and how to write learning outcomes about specific aspects of the course that describe a competency or performance capability that is to be acquired by the learner.

Next you will learn how to storyboard a course using presentation techniques such as storytelling, a scenario-based approach, a demonstration-practice method, or a toolkit approach. Finally, you will learn how to create different types of assessments that monitor and evaluate student learning.

This course will be of great interest to teachers, trainers and all subject matter experts who would like to learn more about the theory and practice behind designing and developing effective e-learning courses.
