Designing Effective E-Learning

Designing Effective E-Learning aims to apply knowledge of current learning theories by incorporating research-based principles of online learning. In this course, students will explore the use of instructional design strategies and tools to develop effective e-learning for a wide range of learners.

In this course, students must learn how to:

  • Define and compare e-learning to other modes of learning
  • Identify the characteristics of meaningful learning
  • Analyze learner and task needs
  • Relate learning theories and knowledge acquisition models (Bloom's taxonomy, learning styles, behaviorism, objectivism, cognitivism, constructivism, backward design principles, etc.) to instructional strategies and learning outcomes
  • Develop concise, measurable and meaningful learner outcomes
  • Compare and contrast a variety of e-learning instructional strategies and tools

Time Commitment: Plan for 3-6 hours of work per week.

This course is a part of the E-Learning Instructional Design and Development Certificate, which includes:

  • Designing Effective E-Learning
  • Exploring E-Learning Tools
  • Developing and Implementing E-Learning
  • E-Learning Assessment and Evaluation
  • E-Learning Practicum

If students are new to instructional design, it is strongly recommended that they take the courses sequentially. Students must complete all other courses before beginning the E-Learning Practicum.
