We understand the difference between acquiring knowledge and achieving learning. To achieve long-lasting behavioral change, we use creative and sound instructional design strategies not only to help learners absorb content, but also retain, comprehend, apply, and critically analyze it.
Coupled with our robust visual design strategies and updated user experience know-how, we aim to make every learning experience fun and addictive. Here are some of the instructional design principles we uphold in XpertLearning.
Clear Learning Objectives
The e-Learning programs developed by XpertLearning are designed to meet specific, measurable, and action-based learning objectives.
We design our objectives to progress according to Bloom's Taxonomy of Knowledge, then we select the best approach to meet the course objectives.
We design in a way that ensures learning is an active process where contextual meaning is developed based on the learners’ existing experiences and knowledge of the content,
therefore bringing about a change in the behaviour and attitude of the learners. Applying this paradigm, scenarios and decision mazes are used to weave in the learning and meet the learning outcomes.
At XpertLearning, we consider the learners’ mental schema as the key factor upon which the courses are built. Our strategy incorporates the usage of clear-cut text which appears on the
screen accompanied by images, graphics, animations, videos, etc. to engage all types of learners.
Periodic knowledge check questions are also built-in to help the learner validate their areas of strengths and weaknesses. Through periodic reiteration of key points, effective visuals, and crisp text, our e-learning courses are designed to drive the information to the short-term memory and then into the long-term memory.
At XpertLearning, we incorporate active learning techniques where learners do more than simply watch or listen passively. We know that e-learning learners can only
view what is being presented to them and that learners is passive if learn better when they actively engage with the material they are learning.
This is why we integrate several interactive elements in our programs to ensure learners interact with the learning content in a meaningful way. As a result, learners take responsibility for their learning and play a significant role in the overall learning process by actively interacting with the elements on the screen.
For any program we create, we divide the learning content into bite-sized chunks set into a logical sequence in order to reduce the cognitive load on the learners.
Matching the learners' attention span, this bite-sized approach to learning significantly enhances learner's absorption and retention of the content. Most importantly, it removes the discomfort from the learning process and makes learning on-the-go possible.
At XpertLearning, we understand the importance of learning effectiveness measurement on your reporting of training ROI and justification of the training budget.
So, all learning programs are concluded with summative learning assessments that help you evaluate your learners' progress and the effectiveness of your training decisions.
Created to measure the achievement of the learning objectives upon which the learning content is based, our learning assessments are modeled around Bloom's Taxonomy of Knowledge.
We interweave periodic knowledge checks with our bite-sized courses to increase the learners' attention, comprehension, and retention of the learning content.
Ranging from basic T/F questions to complex scenario-based MCQs, the knowledge checks serve the purpose of helping learners engage with the material and discover their strengths and weaknesses.
