Our online courses
In this free online course, delivered by the University's Health E-Learning and Media (HELM) team, you will be taken through the process of designing e-learning for health – from deciding on a learning aim to getting ready to develop your resource.
You will explore the following questions:
- How do we translate real-life experiences into e-learning?
- How can our e-learning tell powerful stories?
- What methods can we use to design high quality and reusable e-learning resources?
- And how can we best get our concepts and ideas across to multiple audiences?
By the end of the five weeks, you will have created your own storyboard and specification for a high quality piece of e-learning, which you can then develop further after the course.
Start date: 13 February 2017
