Understanding Not Just Another Elearning Course: Part Two

03 October 2019 by Libby Cross

We are now more than halfway through our second Open Learning Experience (OLX) of the year with Not Just Another Elearning Course, a three-part interactive and social learning experience, designed to help L&D departments craft more engaging learning experiences for less. 

Starting with part one, ‘When and Why to Try a New Approach’, we introduced the concept of the modern learner and what this might mean for approaches to L&D in 2019. These first few levels explored the changing demographics of the learners within your organizations, the increase in the need for on-demand and mobile learning experiences and the transition from Instructional Design (ID) to Learning Experience Design (LXD). 

It is only once organizations start to account for the changes amongst their audience and their specific learning needs within the workplace, that we can begin disseminating truly meaningful learning experiences that speak to the learner as an individual. That’s where part two comes in!

Part Two: Key Learning Points 

Delving into part two, ‘Structuring Your Learning Experience’ we took a look at the how and why of curating resources for online learning, specifically giving attention to the process of repurposing old content to make it more relevant today, as well as demonstrating the best way to structure a course to achieve higher engagement amongst learners. 

Below you’ll find the key learning points from the second instalment of this OLX, as well as the learning resources used to help aid your understanding. Recap on part-2 here: 

Key Learning ¦   Understanding what content is worth repurposing for new courses
