Learning design for live online courses

Learning design for live online courses

Moving face-to-face learning online is not just a process of delivering the same material online. For online learning to be effective and engaging means a radical redesign of the learning design. Live online learning has challenges but it also has powerful possibilities that mean you can design transformative learning experiences.

In this session you will learn:

  • How to design blended learning with live online sessions at the core
  • Designing interactive scenarios
  • Using game-based learning in live sessions
  • Designing group work and collaborative learning

This session is a rapid way to take the design of your live online sessions to another level.
