Creating a good experience for learners

When your learners take your eLearning course you want to make sure that you provide the best User Experience possible. In addition to having an intuitive and well thought out User Interface you need to make sure your learners are engaged and interested in your course.

Below are some important things to consider when developing your next eLearning course.

1. Providing Feedback

When your learners take your eLearning course, one of the most important things you should do is provide meaningful feedback. For example, if you ask your learners to complete knowledge check question you should provide the learner with meaningful feedback, this feedback should tell the learner which answers are correct and explains why these answers are correct. Without providing meaningful feedback your learners will only know they got the question wrong without understanding why.

2. Interactions

As your learners proceed through your course it can be tempting to use videos, audio and text to explain the subject you are trying to teach, however, it is important that you also try to make your course as interactive as possible. This can be done in a variety of ways, for example you could use a click-and-reveal activity which breaks up content into smaller bite sized chunks and gets the learner to click on specific areas of the screen to reveal new content, or you could include a drag-and-drop activity which tests the learner’s knowledge by getting them to drag statements into specific buckets on screen.

3. Audience

When creating your course, you need to think about how the course flows and how you can build on the knowledge that the learner currently has. Before you develop your course think about the audience and their currently level of knowledge and then think about how you can build on this throughout the course. This is important because if you move too fast or dive into a subject that is too complex for your audience it can result in frustration and a learner disengaging from what you are trying to teach.
