Conference Archive

DevLearn 2011 Conference - November 4, 2011

Steve Yacovelli

Director, Inclusion & Change

There's a lot of learning content out there — and some big name providers — but QUANTITY of courses doesn't equate to QUALITY. Many purchasers (be they internal to an organization or buying something from an external vendor) don't necessarily know what to look for in order to determine if a vendor’s e-courses are high-quality. This session will provide tools and models to effectively evaluate online learning in order to separate the good from the mediocre or downright bad.

In this session, participants will explore seven strategies for critically evaluating the quality of asynchronous online learning. At the end of the session, participants will be able to: 1. Identify the strategies associated with evaluating the instructional design of eLearning. 2. Effectively evaluate the Levels of Interactivity in an “e” program. 3. Critique an “e” program’s graphic design quality. 4. Define an “e” program’s level of “tone” and “language.” 5. Demonstrate the strategies identifying the technical integrity of the “e” program. 6. Evaluate an “e” program’s timing and length. 7. Begin to evaluate the cost of maintaining the “e” program within the organization

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to identify the strategies associated with evaluating the instructional design of eLearning
  • How to effectively evaluate the Levels of Interactivity of an “e” program
  • How to critique the graphic design quality of an “e” program
  • How to evaluate a course’s level of “tone” and “language” for the “e”
Audience: Novice, intermediate, and advanced designers, developers, managers, and executives.
