The course Introduction to E-Learning Theory and Practice is an overview of internationally recognised and research-based e-learning theory and methodologies for creating effective e-learning courses. The course begins by reviewing what is meant by the term “e-learning” and what the benefits are in creating e-learning content.

The course then reviews the Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Development, how learning occurs in a multimedia environment, and how to identify relevant course material using topic analysis and task analysis methodologies.

You will learn about the importance of writing learning outcomes first when creating a course, and how to write learning outcomes about specific aspects of the course that describe a competency or performance capability that is to be acquired by the learner. Next you will learn how to storyboard a course using presentation techniques such as storytelling, a scenario-based approach, a demonstration-practice method, or a toolkit approach.

Finally, you will learn how to create different types of assessments that monitor and evaluate student learning.
