About this Webinar 

Organisations are embracing shorter and more abbreviated learning, within an online environment, in a move geared at creating greater efficiency. Not only are shorter e-learning courses less time consuming, but what organisations are finding is that they’re also more effective. However, regardless of their size, if the resources are not designed effectively, they will ultimately miss the mark with learners. 

Today’s learner has less time and a shorter attention span, making it unrealistic to assume that they can sit for long periods to complete an e-learning course without interruption. This is what has driven the shift toward developing just-in-time, bite-sized learning resources. The thought is that it’s better to engage a learner for 45 minutes of truly productive learning time where information is absorbed and retained, as opposed to presenting them with a full day online course that has no impact. 

This webinar explores six key considerations when looking to design more effective e-learning resources and provides a range of examples for how to integrate these into your own online programs.

Alignment: This webinar presents some of the course content for the Unit of Competency TAEDES503 Design and develop e-learning resources, which is an elective unit in both the TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training and TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design and Development.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • How e-learning can be broken into meaningful bite-sized chunks
  • Six considerations when designing e-learning resources
  • Identifying how to apply key design principles to create more effective e-learning resources.
