eLearning Content Development
Discover Learning Designs knows that content is king. Especially when it comes to elearning content development. More than having the latest source materials, the content should be of high quality from a technical standpoint, such as the video production values, the interactive components, the graphics used, etc. Responsiveness is key in developing elearning content. We develop elearning content that will look great across digital platforms as they adapt, or respond, to any device the learner will use to access them online. This also gives us the creative freedom to deliver our online lessons in a more interactive manner like how modern websites are unlike the traditional slide-based elearning of decades past.
But that doesn’t mean DLD shies away from the most basic types of elearning materials such as PowerPoint presentations, PDFs, audiovisual presentations, and the like. What we do is we make these materials our jumping-on points to create learning programs that are more effective, engaging, and highly interactive for the learners. Guided by the principles of Discovery Learning, our elearning content development promotes learning by using interactive elements throughout the course. These interactive elements may include but are not limited to accordions, flashcards, sorting activities, and the like.
Knowledge Checks and Assessments
Just like in any face-to-face education, knowledge checks and assessments are incorporated into the development of our elearning content. These are low-stress assessment tools designed to gauge the knowledge levels of the learners before and after the training. As such, they provide awareness for the learners of how much they have learned from the materials as well as what knowledge gaps they need to fill in.
Regardless of the frequency of these checks and assessments, the objective is to measure the effectiveness of the elearning materials themselves and help the learners totally understand the training materials. This also gives us insights into what needs to be calibrated to further help the learners absorb the lesson very well.
Some of the knowledge checks and assessments that can be used in developing our elearning content include but are not limited to multiple choice, scenarios, fill in the blanks, and matching type. Parameters for these can be specified by any of the following: passing score, require passing score to continue, quiz retries, randomised questions, shuffled answer choices, feedback on correct and incorrect answers, and many more. Results of the assessments are recorded in your organisation’s learning management system if enabled, while knowledge checks are not.
