CommLab India

What does it take to design good assessments for your e-learning course? Well, a sure-shot way is to develop assessments based on the learning objectives of the course. Why should assessments and learning objectives be aligned? For instance, the objective of your e-learning course is to enable your people create an invoice using SAP, within 5 minutes. How to frame assessments based on learning objectives?

How To Write Effective Learning Objectives To Support Your Blended Learning Strategy

Obsidian Learning

Blended learning programs can include many deliverables. Assuming that preliminary analysis resulted in concrete goals for the program, converting those goals into actual, measurable learning objectives specific to each deliverable is critical for the success of the blended learning strategy. Here, we will give you a 4-step guide to writing effective and powerful learning objectives to support your blended learning program.

Bloom’s Taxonomy and Learning Games

Knowledge Guru

You have a clear business problem, a related instructional goal, and a desire to incorporate learning games to help you achieve your instructional goal. To answer the question, focus on crafting relevant learning objectives. These objectives should outline what learners need to know, do, or believe/feel to achieve whatever instructional goal you have defined. Bloom’s Taxonomy categorizes learning into six levels of thinking, with each level adding complexity.

Applying The Basics Of Bloom’s Taxonomy In e-learning

Wizcabin

One of the approaches to delivering the right training is by applying Bloom’s taxonomy in e-learning. Bloom’s taxonomy is an old concept that has been in existence since 1956 purposely for traditional classroom training. However, it got revised in 2001 to meet the modern approach of learning. One of the roles of Bloom’s Taxonomy in e-learning is to deliver a course learning objective.

Essential Criteria for Choosing the Right Video-Based Learning Model

Obsidian Learning

Video-based learning is a powerful learning tool. The medium is endowed with unique features that make it an effective learning method, able to enhance traditional instructor-led learning approaches and change the way we learn and the way we teach. Also, videos can more easily establish emotional connections, keeping learners more engaged and motivated as compared to traditional learning approaches. But how do you design effective video-based learning?

Step Two: Determining Learning Objectives. Determining learning objectives helps designers determine what to include (or exclude) in their eLearning courses. Learning objectives also act as a guide before creators even begin designing the course by keeping the module in line with the current educational philosophy. Designers should refer to Bloom’s taxonomy , a theory that relates to the classification of different levels of cognitive learning.

Effective Tips for Successful Custom E-learning Development

CommLab India

A good customized e-learning course goes a long way in meeting the needs of learners. Tip 1 : Get a Clear Idea of the Learning Outcomes. Clarity on the learning outcomes helps you create the right online course that meets the needs of stakeholders. How will they use the information and skills they learn in their jobs? Tip 3: Frame Proper Learning Objectives. This is inarguably the most important aspect in the development of bespoke e-learning.

Walking down the Interactive Learning Path with Raptivity

Raptivity

With a tool like Raptivity, educators can bridge this gap by adding meaningful learning interactions (such as brainteasers, interactive diagrams, 3D worlds, games, simulations, assessments and much more) to their digital content. The interactive assignments, assessments and evaluations created using Raptivity help in better evaluation results and fewer repeats.

So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that there are different ways to teach and assess these various types of learning. It’s usually easier to create learning offerings for the lower levels of learning, like memorizing a definition. Creating learning objectives is a good place to start. Then take a good look at the action verbs you used to write the objectives. These provide clues about how in-depth each objective is.

Level 2 – Learning. As you can see, we now move from a superficial level of understanding the success of a training program, to a deeper level of understanding the extent of learning that has taken place, based on the employee’s participation in the program. To measure what was learnt during training, one must first understand: The original level of knowledge of the employee, by conducting an assessment before training. Conduct an assessment during training.

A Conversation with John Deligiannis of mLevel

Kapp Notes

John had some really interesting things to say about the learning industry and what mLevel is doing to increase learner engagement. Kapp: You’ve been in the Learning and Development space for a long time, what is the most profound change you’ve seen over the course of your career? Learning professionals have had to get much more creative and use a much wider variety of tools: eLearning, job aids, performance support, games, assessments, and more.

The Evolution of Instructional Design

CommLab India

In my previous blog, I introduced you to instructional design and its role in the development of e-learning modules. Skinner’s Theory of Operant Conditioning (1958) states that learning results in changes in overt behavior. The theory led educators to think that human learning can be enhanced if reinforcements are carefully controlled, to elicit the desired behavior. The application of this theory to e-learning led to the development of the programmed instruction movement.

Evaluating eLearning

Web Courseworks

When I talk about the type of eCourse to be evaluated, I am basically referring to three general categories of eCourses including self-paced tutorials similar to those offered by SkillSoft, higher education courses, and experiential immersive learning simulations. When developing a basis of my evaluations, I derive some of my factors from the ASTD Certification Institute’s, E-Learning Courseware Certification Standards that was released in the early part of the century.

Managers are able to see how the feedback is taken by employees and if they utilize it constructively in the next stage of their learning. Quality video and interactive content is much more effective than textual content as learners are able to experience a real-life simulation, enhancing and expanding practical skills. We have outlined different types of popular learning formats today. Microlearning is the perfect solution for learners after rapid but effective learning.
