First Curate, Then Create

Sharing your knowledge through an e-learning course is a great initiative, but it only adds real value if you have something new to say. So, before creating a course, the first step is to check whether any resources already exist that cover the same topic.

Learn the optimal size for e-learning design: Bite size is the right size.

When it comes to e-learning, less is more. Authors should avoid creating courses or assessments that are too large for people to chew on in one go. To find out the right size, duration and medium for an effective e-learning design, Easygenerator conducted a study with over 200 participants which it then enhanced with existing market research.

How to create courses following the right order for high learning impact

Use Learning Objectives

Using learning objectives is the first and probably most important cornerstone for e-learning course creation. What will your learners know or be able to do after they’ve taken your course? To answer this question, you need to set a SMART goal for your course or assessment. This is a must-have! Make things easy by breaking down your goal into a set of specific, measurable objectives.
