A Digital-Learning Systems Approach:

A Digital-Learning Systems Approach What type of course are we building? What Outcomes? What Behaviors? As Measured by?

Help Focus the Subject Matter Experts  Focus on behaviors: Instead of telling me what the new learners should know, tell me what actions they should be able to do.  :

Help Focus the Subject Matter Experts  Focus on behaviors: Instead of telling me what the new learners should know, tell me what actions they should be able to do. 

Sometimes this works…:

Sometimes this works… Create some objectives Construct bullet points of information from content experts Insert a couple of graphics Put a quiz at the end

Begin by understanding the learner and style of learning:

Begin by understanding the learner and style of learning But….it may work better if we …..

What does the learner want from this?:

What does the learner want from this? Why I am taking this course? What am I supposed to do with all of this information? How can I prove I know it?

What makes the difference? Engagement! Create scenarios to engage the learner:

What makes the difference? Engagement! Create scenarios to engage the learner “The way for getting past the click-and-read type of e-learning is to figure out how the course content is relevant to the learner.”

Mission: To Build e-learning courses that are structured like the workers’ real work environment.:

Mission: To Build e-learning courses that are structured like the workers’ real work environment. Not just information dumps Interactive scenarios for engagement style learning experiences On-demand learning -Drill down to updated information through on-line intranet links when needed (maximum shell life)

Don’t Punish Knowledge! :

Don’t Punish Knowledge! If they already know the material, let the learner skip ahead to assessment.

What makes a course interactive? 1. Making correct decisions moves the learner along toward successful learning outcomes. 2. Making wrong decisions provides the learner with additional information and opportunities for success. :

What makes a course interactive? 1. Making correct decisions moves the learner along toward successful learning outcomes. 2. Making wrong decisions provides the learner with additional information and opportunities for success. What does the learner understand? How do you know s(he) understands it? What are the gaps and how do you provide feedback?

The Key to Producing Successful Outcomes:

The Key to Producing Successful Outcomes

Which Options? :

Which Options? Pre-tests : Establishes a baseline to judge effectiveness of trainings and motivate the learner by virtue of the preview. Can act as a device to zero in on outcomes needed for learner and allow for branching or hot spot instruction . Post tests – Measures outcomes and assesses the effectiveness of the instruction. Embedded tests – Provides for scenario-based learning experiences . Provides summative evaluation at intervals and builds confidence.
