How to Create Clear Learning Objectives

Association eLearning

Firstly, learners can read the learning objectives for an eLearning course or training seminar and decide whether they want to take it. Prove it by fulfilling the learning objectives using the comments section. I’m looking forward to seeing your sample learning objectives.
