Developing engaging eLearning

Designing and developing eLearning and digital training that is both engaging and educational for learners can be tricky. During the eLearning process there are a number of things you should consider to ensure you create the best possible course for your learners.

Below are some things you should think about and consider when developing your next eLearning course.

1. Have a good User Experience (UX)

The User Experience or UX focuses on the user having a meaningful and relevant experience when using a product. When it comes to eLearning this will focus on whether or not the learner is able to take your course without issues and learn about the subject you are trying to teach them. When designing the UX for your eLearning try to ensure that:

  • Learners are able to navigate the course well

  • The course flows logically and topics build on one another

  • They are learning what you are trying to teach them

2. Have a good User Interface (UI)

The User Interface or UI focuses more on the interface that the user interacts with on screen. Having a well thought out and carefully designed UI is critical to creating a good eLearning course. For example, colour scheme is an important part of UI development, if your company has branding guidelines those should be applied to ensure consistency with the company brand. The UI should also be intuitive, as you will mostly likely have a varied audience with different skill levels when it comes to technology you should ensure that you create a UI that can be used easily by a variety of learners. If leaners are unable to work out what to do next this will not provide a good learning experience and can leave some learners giving up in frustration.

3. Relevant Content

One of the trickiest things to consider when it comes to designing and developing eLearning is ensuring that the content you are creating is relevant to the course. This can be tricky and is a balancing act as you are trying to provide the learner with all the information they need while at the same time not overloading them and making the course very long. When it comes to deciding on what content to use think about what you want to teach the learners for that specific course, create learning objectives and try to stick to them, if needed you can always create another course that covers the topics you weren’t able to cover in your course.
