How To Plan And Develop A Mini E-course.

OK, as promised here is the video to follow my newsletter on E-courses.  I told you I was passionate about E-courses!  In the future more and more people will be looking to the internet for their life-long learning, and E-courses will be key to providing the necessary information.

It’s really important that we develop dynamic and interactive courses.  Too many courses on the internet are simply PDF documents with a few questions thrown in at the end for good measure.  If you’re going to offer this approach then why not just send out an E-book and be done with it! 

Look to include a range of approaches, catering for all individual learning styles – visual, auditory and kinaesthetic.  Encourage your readers to develop their own learning strategies and offer them the tools to do so.

Times really are changing.  When I was an undergraduate, I can well remember my lecturers standing at a lectern and simply reading out of their textbook.  We were expected to scribble away furiously – and then buy the textbook!  In my first year at University the department introduced PIPs, or personal instruction programmes.  These were glorified slide projections with a simple narrative – but at least it was a start.

I’m now involved in a really exciting project where University and School lectures are integrated into highly interactive video programmes, with ongoing assessment and resources.

We need to continually move with the times – E-course are going to be big business, so click on my video link below and get started today!


p.s. please leave me a comment if you think that my videos could be improved in any way, or let me know if there are any topics you would like me to cover – I really appreciate your feedback!

    Hey Graham I like the look of this but cannot watch videos because I am on a limited bandwidth satellite broadband connection in Ireland. Do you have a transcript available?
