Key Chapters

  1. 5 Steps To A Results-Driven Curriculum

    The five steps you can take to design with results in mind.

  2. Create A Project Charter

    Whether you’re converting a curriculum from instructor-led to online, or building a new online or blended curriculum, the key to success is articulating the problem and desired result.

  3. Know Your Audience

    At its core, training is about getting people to start, stop, or do more of something to achieve a business goal. So needless to say, people are at the heart of what you develop and why you design the solutions you do.

  4. Define The Performance Goals And Barriers

    Once you’ve documented the business outcomes and created personas, it’s time to get a clear understanding of what learner outcomes are required of the solution–i.e. what you need learners to be able to do that they couldn’t or wouldn’t do before your solution.

  5. Surface Solution Constraints

    This step is a short but important one. You now must think both outside and inside the box. What do we mean by that? Well, there may be specific constraints or requirements for the project that, if you don’t surface them and design with them in mind, might make you end up having to rethink your design approach.

  6. Envision The Learning Experience

    You’ve gathered all your requirements, and you’ve determined what is needed to achieve the objectives you’ve set for the project. It’s now time to envision your solution.

  7. Design – The Never-Ending Story

    You’ve done the hard work and have a well-articulated design for a solution that is specific to the business need, the audience, and the performance goals for that audience. It’s time now to turn ideas into reality.

Where do most eLearning programs fall short? They focus on delivering content rather than delivering experiences that support and enable change. When you instead lead with a business need, you can systematically break things down to make smart, focused decisions every step of the way.

This guide offers valuable insights to create an eLearning curriculum that leaves a lasting impression on your team. It helps you target areas for improvement and business objectives so that you can focus on what matters most to your organization.
