5 Instructional Design Strategies for Creating Better E-learning
Instructional Design Strategy – the Key for Engaging eLearning
Instructional strategies are a set of methods, techniques and devices used by learning experts or instructional designers to support the learning processes. It is a high level approach taken to define how a particular subject is taught.
In an eLearning course, participation in the learning process needs to be at three levels:
Intellectual participation that involves participants by making them think through interactivities and practice exercises
Emotional participation through scenarios, case-studies, and visuals that participants encounter in their day to day work and can easily relate to
Physical participation where they are given the freedom to make choices in the way they interact and learn through the course.
If there is a right balance of intellectual, emotional and physical participation in the way eLearning courses are designed, the courses will be well-received and the training objectives will be attained. So, how does one ensure the right balance?
Instructional design strategies serve as guidelines for learning experts as they design eLearning courses. What are these guidelines and components, and how can one use them effectively in an eLearning course?
