Aurion Learning has recently launched a new rapid e-learning training course.
This intense two-day training course is specifically designed for in-house trainers and subject matter experts from all industries who want to design and build their own rapid e-learning programmes in-house.
In this interview, Dr. Maureen Murphy, Managing Director of Aurion Learning talks about the new Rapid E-learning Training course in more detail:
First of all – what is rapid e-learning?
"Rapid e-learning programmes are characterised as having a shorter development time, and lower cost than traditional e-learning. Essentially you could have a rapid e-learning course up and running within a couple of weeks.
Rapid e-learning is also more suited for short courses or bite-sized learning. It should focus on one or two specific topics and be limited to a maximum of 30 minutes of learning."
Why have you designed this training course in rapid e-learning?
“We’ve designed this rapid e-learning training course in response to high demand from our clients who are increasingly looking to build internal or in-house skills and capabilities in e-learning.
In particular, we’ve seen a high demand for training in instructional design, writing for e- learning, and how to use authoring tools to create e-learning programmes.”
What can learners expect from this course?“
During this intense two-day course we’ll work closely with you to give you a thorough knowledge and understanding of online learning theories and strategies.
We’ll also show you how to use best practice instructional design techniques to develop effective learning objectives and curriculum plans. Finally, we’ll teach you how to use a best-of-breed authoring tool to design and build engaging e-learning modules.”
What are the benefits?“
After completing this rapid e-learning course you’ll be able to create your own highly effective and engaging online learning modules that incorporate:
- learning objectives;
- best practice instructional design techniques;
- practical activities, interactions and learning assets that engage learners and facilitate learning; and
- assessments to test the learning outcomes against agreed learning objectives.”
Who is this rapid e-learning training course most suitable for?
“This course is designed for in-house trainers, learning and development professionals and subject matter experts from any industry who want to learn how to develop their own e-learning in-house.
To maximise effectiveness we recommend that:
- you have at least 12 months’ experience of delivering training in a work-environment;
- expertise in the area you are proposing to teach; and
- experience in using Microsoft Word and Microsoft Powerpoint.
