|Typical eLearning Course Approach
||Principles of Course Alignment
||Student outcomes focused: provide learning experiences that have long-term impact–well beyond the end of instructional events–to times when the learning is needed for performance and elaboration.
|Efficient for instructors
||Meaningful to students: provide learning experiences that are relevant to students’ current goals and/or that motivate them to engage deeply in the process of learning.
||Authentic contexts: provide sufficient levels of realistic practice; simulations, scenario-based decision making, case-based evaluations, and authentic exercises.
||Peer and faculty feedback: provide guidance and feedback to correct their misconceptions, reinforce their comprehension, and build effective skills
||Interactive activities prompting deep engagement: provide opportunities for reflection, application, rehearsal, elaboration, contextualization, debate, evaluation, synthetization, etc. (not just in navigation, page turning, rollovers, and information search).
|Student satisfaction survey
||Meaningful student perceptions: measure students’ perceptions regarding their ability to apply what they’ve learned, their level of motivation, and the support received in implementing the learning.
