How to create proper learning objectives

By |

When you want to create a really bad learning experience, this is the way to do it:

  1. Don’t think about your learners
  2. Dump a body of information in a course as if it was a PowerPoint
  3. Add a few images (has to look good)
  4. Add a few questions (for scoring)
  5. Upload it into your LMS

Everybody knows (or should know) that learning development starts with defining clear learning objectives. In the new web edition of easygenerator you can’t create any content or questions without creating a learning objective first. The idea is that we help people in this way to create better courses. Easygenerator is the only e-Learning authoring software that works this way. However there is a catch: If you create bad learning objectives, you will get equally bad courses. To solve this problem, easygenerator is developing an eLearning course that will instruct you on how to create great learning objectives. Additionally, easygenerator will build a tool within easygenerator that will support authors to develop proper learning objectives. But as a start I will write a series of post covering the foundation of instructional design. First step is of course Learning objectives and Blooms taxonomy.
Because this is of wider interest than the readers of this blog I decided to publish the article in the eLearningindustry.com. Click on the image below to read the complete article.Objectives post

Subject matter experts play a very important part in the development process. However, most subject matter experts don’t have instructional design skills. This fact makes the process a bit complicated. Usually the question arises: how much involvement do I really want? Read more »
