As technology and automation only continue to grow and improve, so does online learning. More and more colleges and universities are offering online courses. In fact, eLearning is anticipated to be a $37.6 billion market by 2020.
If you want to create an engaging eLearning course, one of the most important components, apart from the content itself, of course, should be the eLearning template you use.
Below, well discuss a few specific things to bear in mind when choosing the best eLearning template for your course.
What are the objectives and desired outcomes of your course? These should dictate the overall style of your theme including fonts, color schemes, and any imagery used throughout the course. An ugly or uninteresting eLearning template wont project a professional image.
Ask: Who is your primary audience? Who was the course designed for? The template should reflect their specific needs. For example, if the course was designed for medical students, the template should be unique to them.
Another important consideration when choosing your template is branding and customizability. Your eLearning course or program should be branded in such a way that it stands out and differentiates you from competitors. The templates and media offered through Torch Learning Management System could be a good place to start.
Additionally, the branding should also be in line with any guidelines you may have. Is there a specific set of previously approved colors you will be expected to use? Perhaps a specific font is preferred? Be sure to find this information out and adhere to all guidelines when customizing your template.
Having the ability to easily navigate an online course should be of utmost importance to creators. If its not user-friendly, it wont be used! Ensure that students can easily navigate to the courses landing page and access all of the necessary content.
It should go without saying that participants in your course should be able to view and navigate throughout all of the pages on any of their devices. This includes iPads/tablets, smartphones, laptops, and desktop computers. One of the major advantages of eLearning is the ability to access content from anywhere, at any time.
If your course is not designed with this in mind, you run the risk of not only alienating (and potentially even irritating) current participants you could lose out on future business as well.
As with every business, marketing is crucial to the success of your eLearning course or program. Frankly, if no one knows that it exists, whats the point? In order to be able to provide knowledge as you have set out to, the general public must first know that your eLearning course exists and is available!
