When it comes to an online course, the information provided need to be crisp and to the point. Being the instructional designer for the course, you should make sure that all of the content is not always important. Only the information very relevant to the topic of the course needs to present.
Some information is what’s needed to be known and some information will be good to know but not entirely important from the course point of view. For example, if you are taking up a course dealing with preparation for aptitude tests, talking about the very basics of mathematics and calculations would be good to know, but not something that has to be talked about in the course.
There are few things to keep in mind while creating content for your course to help differentiate what’s needed to be known and what’s not.
