Writing for eLearning – Motivating Online Learners
Learn to adapt your writing style to both motivate and support learning on line, using strategies
that include story, characters, dilemma, humour and more.
Learn internationally-recognised principles for multimedia learning to prepare learners for the main or important concepts to come, reduce clutter and redundancy, keep the on-screen text close to and relevant to the associated visuals.
Understand the impact and importance of segmenting on-screen text for animation and videos and how to create conceptually meaningful chunks to minimise overload.
Learn how and when to use signalling to present on-screen text with narration. Learn to write texts for online examples (distributed, step-by-step), practice problems (on-screen text for directions, writing online instructions, while maintaining clutter-free delivery) and, finally, how to write online feedback.
