Understanding Not Just Another Elearning Course: Part Three

08 October 2019 by Libby Cross

We have now come to the end of our second Open Learning Experience (OLX) of the year with Not Just Another E-learning 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). 

Moving onto part two, ‘Structuring Your Learning Experience’ we delved into 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. 

Part Three: Key Learning Points 

Heading into the final instalment of the OLX, ‘Curating and Creating Success’ we turned our attention to the dos and don’ts of effectively curating resources for online learning. This included tips for curating content that is relevant, up-to-date, and most importantly, adheres to strict copyright laws. And if you’d like to delve into that a little further, you can also read our blog Developing Content: Curate Don’t Create
