    USING FLASH TO MARKET E-LEARNING COURSES — Marketing is key to successful implementation of an e-Learning course, and Flash is an excellent tool for this purpose.The rich media of Flash provides an excellent means of gaining your audience’s attention to a course,why the course is relevant to them, and the benefits of taking it.Many marketing strategies utilize electronic announcements, such as e-mails or Intranet articles, but via Flash you can deliver a more effective and entertaining message than with text and static graphics alone. Use characters in the advertisement.

    [Providers] Given this post, readers will be able to describe my perspective on course objectives to 100% accuracy
    The content must provide all that is needed for the learner to meet the objectives. If you write clear objectives, make sure your course's content allows participants to meet those objectives and your assessment measures whether the objectives were met, then you are doing a great job. If not, please give me a minute of your time. Objectives have a purpose. They are NOT just to tell participants what they will learn at the beginning of a course. think of them as a contract. It is an agreement between the content and the audience. This is why I am ranting about it. Treat them as such.

    Allowing user control provides self-directed learning and allows users to determine their learning needs and what is relevant to their needs, all of which are important concepts in adult learning theory. I am a big advocate for user control.
