What Will I Learn?
  • The nature of the small multimedia learning resources known as reusable learning objects (RLOs), their characteristics and use.

  • Storyboarding for resources.
  • How to turn a storyboard into a final specification.

Why join the course?

In this course, we will ask: How do we translate real-life experiences into e-learning? How can our e-learning tell powerful stories? What methods can we use to design high quality and reusable e-learning resources? How can we best get our ideas across to multiple audiences?

We will introduce a methodology that you can use yourself, to design your own e-learning objects in all sorts of contexts, not just health.

By the end of the course, you will have created your own storyboard and specification for a high-quality piece of e-learning, which you can develop further after the course.

Who is the course for?
