Best Practices for Creating Online Courses

eLearning Brothers

There are many things to think about when creating eLearning. There’s no way that I can mention all of them in this post but I’d like to mention a few that come to the top of my mind. Course Outline / Storyboarding. Know the audience. Find good SMEs. Always create an outline of the course. Storyboarding allows you to structure content flow. Decide what knowledge/skills need to be taught first. SMEs can take a glance at the flow and content. Content creating will go more quickly. (it’s faster than creating content and then starting over). Learners scan, they don’t read.

Is Classroom Training More Credible than Online Training?

eLearning Brothers

Recently at a round-table discussion about eLearning in the Commercial Lending industry an interesting point surfaced periodically: “Why is classroom training perceived as being more credible than online training?&#. think that this varies a bit by industry (and commercial banking is not known to be pioneers in the latest technology) but many people believe that classroom training is the “best way&#. Learning is acceptable as a “second-best&# option but will not work as well as a classroom session. Why does this perception? Yes they had buns in a seat. Why or why not?

Copyright 2009 – Scott Hewitt. Here’s another article that I ran across. think that this is a good idea to do some wireframe sketches of various course elements before adding fonts, colors, and other visual elements.

Knowledge vs. Information…Which is it?

eLearning Brothers

Is there a difference between Knowledge and Information? As training professionals are we sharing information, teaching knowledge, or both? Last week I was discussing Commercial Lending training with various designers from financial institutions and someone mentioned how we aim to give knowledge not information. The comment made me start to think about how courses are created. What is knowledge and was is just information? Maybe they are the same? Information: knowledge obtained from investigation, study, or instruction. Today there is tons of information available at our finger tips.

Don’t use Gratuitous Images in eLearning

eLearning Brothers

We’ve all heard the phrase, “ a picture is worth a thousand words. ”  Graphics are great training tools and can make the difference between an average course and a great course.

Really…Were These the Best Images We Could Find?

Brand Your Online Training

eLearning Brothers

The Learner’s Perspective. When a learner launches your online training do they know that it belongs to your company? Could a customer recognize your company by looking at your course? I’ve always thought that training material should mimic the branding of the company and/or organization. So why do I think this way?

Often these are marketing professionals that team up with designers to create all sorts of electronic images/video and print collateral. Fonts. Layouts.
