  • 1. Inspire U Webinar Series Presented by the Center for Compassionate Touch LLC Monday, March 5, 2012www.compassionate-touch.org
  • 2. E-­‐learning  is  the  process  through  which  we  gain  knowledge  using  a  variety  of  Internet   and  computer  resources.  
  • 3. E-­‐learning  has  come  a  long  way  since  its  slow,   cumbersome  beginnings.  Today  it  is  fast,   efficient,  and  convenient.
  • 4. Online  learning  is  important  because  it  allows  users  to  maintain  certifications  and  constantly   develop  and  improve  their  techniques.
  • 5. Benefits  to  the  instructor  of  E-­‐learning  include  convenience,  the  ability  to  work  on  one’s  own   schedule,  and  cost  efficiency.
  • 6. Benefits  to  the  student  of  E-­‐learning  include  the  ability  to  study  on  ones  own  time,  convenience  of   being  able  to  learn  from  home,  and  constant   updating  of  skills.
  • 7. Online  continuing  education  courses  take   time  and  money  to  establish,  but   practitioners  see  excellent  returns.
  • 8. The  creative  process  of  designing  E-­‐learning  products  is   driven  by  the  need  for  portability,  ease  of  use  and   maintenance,  affordability,  and  a  history  of  high  probability  of  success  with  long-­‐term  cost-­‐effectiveness.
  • 9. Deciding  what  topics  to  cover  in  class  should  take   into  account  what  would  lend  itself  to  an  online  environment,  financial  viability,  student  interest,   and  a  history  of  success.
  • 10. Remember  the  role  of  the  National  Certification  Board  (NCB)  in  approving,   listing,  and  promoting  courses.  
  • 11. Development  of  courses  is  aided  by  keeping  all    course  materials  in  a  course  notebook.  Have  courses   tested  and  edited  to  ensure  functionality,  usability,   and    copyright.  
  • 12. Select  an  online  program  that  is  affordable,  reliable,   and  easy  to  use.  Make  sure  it  supports  desired  materials,  such  as  Word  documents  and  PowerPoint   presentations.
  • 13. Make  sure  your  website  is  compatible   with  your  online  testing  program.
  • 14. Keep  the  student  in  mind  when  designing  courses.   Make  sure  it  is  easily  navigable,  instructions  are   clear  and  detailed,  and  user  friendly.
  • 15. Marketing  is  essential  to  the  success  of  your   course.  Use  multiple  marketing  outlets.
