From problem formulation to learning outcomes

When creating an e-Learning course, there are different steps that need to be taken to improve the effectiveness of the course and gain retention. Therefore, do not start with creating the content of the course, which most authors will do. First, you need to think about your goals and the purpose of the course. Why do you make an e-Learning course? What do you want your learners to achieve? What knowledge and competencies do you want them to acquire? There are a lot of question that must be asked.


At first, start to formulate the overall goal of the course. This means a broad and overall statement of what will be achieved. Never lose sight of this goal and create your course around it. If you don’t do this, there is no point in setting these goals in the first place. Most of the time, this goal arises from a concrete, specific, practical problem. For example, in your company you experience a lack of knowledge about the norms and values of the company among your employees. The goal of the course will be to provide clear information about the norms and values of the course.
