Learn to translate real experiences into e-learning for health and social care
How can our e-learning tell powerful stories? How can we 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 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.

- The nature of the small multimedia learning resources known as reusable learning objects (RLOs), their characteristics and use.
- The ASPIRE framework that we use for resource creation
- Storyboarding for resources.
- How to turn a storyboard into a final specification.
- Quality assurance within resource creation, focusing on health resources
- Tools and tips for future e-learning resource development.
