Turning your elearning design from good to great

  1. 1. Turning your Elearning Design from Good to Great J302 (G9H) 12:30-14:00 Paul Tabaque Co-Founder, Guro.PH Founder, Minreeva Learning Learning & Dev’t Consultant
  2. 2. Learning Objectives: 1. Share best practices in elearning design. 2. 3.
  3. 3. Activity: Let’s divide the class into groups. Discuss what you think are the Top 5 Considerations of what consists of great eLearning design. You can use the Google Sheet below for the group's answers
  4. 4. Know the Audience Well • Do tons of research about the audience even before creating a single slide. • Adapt the content to the demographic. • Learning is cultural! Avoid taboos. Get to know the language, the environment, local customs, and etiquette.
  5. 5. Consider the Social Aspect of Learning as a Priority • Learning is a social experience. • Tech may be limited, but find creative ways how to include social interaction.
  6. 6. Respect the Learners’ Time and Attention Span • Avoid cramming all content into one long module. Divide into smaller modules whennecessary. • Work closely with an SME when editing which information to include or exclude.
  7. 7. UX/UI • User Experience / User Interface • Concept is, the better the UX/UI, the customer will keep on using the site / app. • “UX/UI is like a joke. If you have to explain it, then it’s not a good one.”
  8. 8. “Less is More” • You can never go wrong with black and/or white backgrounds. • Stick to a certain color scheme – usually the school / company’s branding. • Rule of thumb: stick to only 3-5 elements per slide.
  9. 9. View Everything in the Shoes of a Novice • Avoid unnecessary use of jargon, too- technical terminologies, and over-the- top explanations. • Rule of thumb: A grade schooler should, at least, be able to navigate through your elearning module.
  10. 10. Follow Through • SUSTAINABILITY – Follow through enhances learning and retention. • STRATEGIC – Follow through avoids the same issues from happening again. Solves foreseeable problems based on current trends.
  11. 11. Solve Real Life Problems • Elearning modules are rooted from a learning need, usually building new skills and knowledge. • Avoid hypothetical situations and use ‘in-your-face’ scenarios that are reflections of what’s happening in reality.
  12. 12. Put Content as King • Content must be: -relevant -interesting -fun • “The only difference between a spammer and an expert is RELEVANCE.”
  13. 13. Have a Strong Grasp of Instructional Design • Using authoring tool ≠ eLearning Design • “Merging Science and Art” • “Walk the fine line between the high-tech and the traditional.”
