Learning Objectives Are Spoilers

Association eLearning

One of the biggest differences is that eLearning tends to literally spell out what’s going to happen next, often with a learning objectives screen. Learning objectives are like plot points. They’re important, but there are more ways to use or handle them than to just plop them onto the traditional “Today you’re going to learn” screen at the beginning of a course. I guess you could consider this “Advanced” learning objective considerations.

How to Make Sure Your Course Meets Its Learning Objectives

” They follow rules, theories, or laws governing the objectives they espouse, and they measure the outcomes of their efforts against those objectives. Instructional designers are guided by these same types of parameters when ensuring their courses meet specific learning objectives. Building Achievable Learning Objectives. When designed correctly, a good learning objective will inherently offer a clear way to measure whether or not it has been met.

How to Avoid Half Cadence Video Simulations

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The first time I immersed myself in a video-based simulation, I felt like something was off, uneasy,, or just plain awkward. These half-cadence simulations are a source of great frustration because simulations are meant to bring the learner as close as possible to the ideal behavior or skill. However, when you fail to use this principle as your guide, you risk impeding the flow of realistic dialogue and creating an assessment rather than a simulation.
