The Rapid E-Learning Blog - design the right type of course

Elearning development is multifaceted. You need to juggle all kinds of tasks: project management, working with clients and SMEs, measuring and communicating ROI, applying sound learning theory, building the content, and piloting your course.

Somewhere in the middle is all the brainstorming and development around how you’ll build your course. How will learners navigate and find information? How will they interact with your content? How can you build an experience that engages learners and serves up the content thoroughly and meaningfully?

This series of posts is all about that middle.  You’ll learn how to pull your content together to create the right type of elearning course.  It covers everything from course structure to creative ideas for course design.
