In Part 2 of this blog series on Employee-generated Learning, we talked about the need to provide content creators with the right course authoring tools. In part 3, we’ll now take a closer look at how to make the creative process as simple as possible.

Course creation made easy

Rather than starting from scratch, employees can choose to use one of Easygenerator’s example courses. They make it a little less intimidating to begin the process of creating a course. These templates can easily be tailored and apply the same methods promoted by seasoned instructional designers.

Here are some of the key features included in the example courses.

Key features

Learning objectives

When developing an e-learning course, it’s crucial to have a specific goal in mind from the very beginning, along with a set of clear learning objectives.

Easygenerator’s Learning Objective Maker helps creators frame those learning objectives at the start of each course and in each section. This encourages them to stay on track and keeps content as focused as possible.

Linear content creation process

Easygenerator uses a five-step linear process for producing content. The course editor tool is designed to guide creators through this process. Changes are automatically saved, and you can preview your draft course at any time. The video below explains how the editor tool works.

Course structure and syntax

Each course has a ready-made structure with an intro section, main body, and an outro. It also includes instructions on what works best for each section. When creating a course, the editor tool will automatically launch a default educational structure for guidance.

Curation

Easygenerator allows you to compile and curate a list of resources. It also encourages you to add context to any of your chosen resources – helping learners gain a better perspective.

Collaboration

With the course editor tool, you can add co-authors and work with other members of your team. You can also easily share your courses for peer review without any additional sign-ups or setup required.

Content, question and layout blocks

Course creators can choose from six content layout tabs to align text, images, and other media. There’s also a range of assessment types available. By clicking the ‘+’ icon in the drag-and-drop editor, you can also add a variety of further functionalities.

Use example courses to simplify e-learning creation

Creating e-learning can feel a little daunting, but Easygenerator’s templates make that process much easier. They ensure that content creation becomes a collaborative and rewarding experience.
