What separates the typical e-course that most solopreneurs create from those created by instructional designers out in the corporate world? In this blog article you’ll get a look at this and hopefully think about how you might begin to close the gap.
Many of the solopreneurs I’ve worked with – maybe nearly all of them – have never had a great e-learning experience. Sure, they’ve likely purchased and gone through other entrepreneur’s series of videos and worksheets that were packaged up as a course. But they haven’t seen a truly lovely example of the best of what e-learning can do. It’s a crying shame.
This is a blog post about what’s possible. Unicorns, flying pigs, you know – that kind of thing. But hey, it’s a new year so…
Here’s some great examples about what’s possible in e-learning:
Showcase #1: Teaching pet owners living in shared communities to be more responsible.
What to notice:
- How this module immerses learners in real-life scenarios that they will actually be part of when they finally get to implementing the teaching.
- Places where the learner has to think and interact with the content.
- That all the resources are available for learners if and when they need them.
- How much of the learning is directed by the learner – they have many opportunities to direct what the learn and how deeply.
- How the images and avatars make you feel that you are gaming. And isn’t gaming fun?!
Warning! Warning! This video is *not* the actual e-learning module, it’s just a video to quickly show you what’s in the module! Got it? Now, take a look:
