|Developing engaging courses for Corporate eLearning programs requires the right balance of instructional design methods and innovative interactive content. At Define Learning, we understand the unique needs of today's companies and learners. We are concerned with what occurs before, during and after the actual learning event, that’s why we utilize a stringent process to ensure the analysis, design, development, evaluation, production and implementation of successful Corporate eLearning solutions.
Our Process and Methods
We utilize the ADDIE Model in our development process. The five phases—Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation—represent a dynamic, flexible guideline for building outstanding courses.
We follow Bloom's Taxonomy which divides educational objectives into three "domains": Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor (sometimes loosely described as knowing/head, feeling/heart and doing/hands respectively). Within the domains, learning at the higher levels is dependent on having attained prerequisite knowledge and skills at lower levels. We find that Bloom's Taxonomy is effective in motivating educators to focus on all three domains, creating a more holistic form of education.
We employ the Gagné "Nine Events of Instruction" as outlined below:
- Gain attention
- Inform learner of objectives
- Stimulate recall of prior learning
- Present stimulus material
- Provide learner guidance
- Elicit performance
- Provide feedback
- Assess performance
- Enhance retention transfer
We find this to be the essential method for organizing learning events during course development.
