eLearning is all the rage and it’s here to stay. It’s no longer if your library will offer online learning, but when. In this three-part course, you will learn the basics of how to design and to develop online tutorials and instructional webinars. By the end of the course, you will have created one eLearning project that you can use for your library.

Over the course of the three classes, you will learn how to: Analyze training needs; Design the training or tutorial; Develop the curriculum; Implement a training or tutorial; and Evaluate or assess the success of the training. In the homework each week, you will apply the concepts covered in that session to the design and development of your training program. The instructors will review your training and provide suggestions. In the last class, you will have the opportunity to share and discuss the training you’ve produced during the course.

*You should plan to set aside at least 1 - 2 hours of time each week for this course.
