Summary

Designing a course to impart knowledge is different than developing a training to impart a skill. Think of all the tasks an employee would complete in a typical workday—for example, logging hours in a time sheet, helping customers select a product suitable to their needs, programming a widget, sending an email. Which of these tasks are skills and which simply require knowledge of the task to complete?

Description

 Teaching to impart a skill is inherently different than teaching to impart knowledge. With an eLearning course, designers have the added challenge to create a course that allows learners to practice behavioral skills, also known as soft skills, in a medium that does not always lend itself to interpersonal interactions. By employing the tips below, you can facilitate the process of learning behavioral skills online. These tips will help you to ensure that your course motivates your learner, that you’ve made the material relevant to the learner by providing examples of behavioral indicators they can observe and detect, and that you’re enabling learners to apply the material to their own lives by structuring assessments and feedbacks throughout the course and by including take-home messages
