What does exemplary digital learning content look like for Business? Use this check list to help you purchase or develop great content.
When used effectively, digital learning resources have the power to engage and stimulate learners and to contribute greatly to learning achievement. It is not possibly to specify exactly what makes a ‘good quality’ learning resource, because so much depends on the type of the resource (tutorial, simulation, game, podcast, screencast, video, presentation, text document, etc.), the purpose of the resource, the way in which the resource is used and the characteristics of the particular users. As ever quality is an issue of ‘fitness for purpose’ - sometimes the simplest of content does the job perfectly; at other times a highly-sophisticated resource is required to satisfy the need. Given these provisos, this HOW TO provides a checklist that will both support L&D professionals in evaluating existing resources and guide content developers in the design of future resources.
The checklist has been developed over many years of consultation in both the private and public sector and has been regularly refined through activities such as Towards Maturity’s direct research with employers and awards programmes looking at content excellence ( specifically, the elearning awards in conjunction with the eLearning Network and the BETT Awards, originally in conjunction with Becta)
This HOW TO is aimed at those looking to develop or purchase digital learning content for the workplace.
This checklist has been adapted by Clive Shepherd, chair of the eLearning Network on behalf of Towards Maturity from guidelines originally produced by Becta.
