What makes online content useful?

Often, knowledge and information-based learning resources often fail to connect with a learner’s application of skills and knowledge, making outcomes tedious and shallow.

This session considers the skills critical in writing effective digital learning content and framing self-paced and collaborative activities for students. 

We explore writing for different types of learning content (knowledge, demonstration, case studies, scenarios, terminology, and problems), practical activities using interactive tools, and collaborative writing activities. 

At the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Understand the essential characteristics of digital learning content and activities

  • Condense text-heavy resources into lighter and more interesting content

  • Apply story-driven characteristics when writing case studies and scenarios

  • Recognise writing styles that enable interactive and engaging self-paced and collaborative learning activities

  • Work with subject matter experts and facilitators when planning and drafting content

  • Pocket some tips and tricks for writing

  • Understand how AI can provide ideas and inspiration

Join to know more about writing content for online purposes,  and how to write your content so it's relevant, engaging and effective for learning!
