This unit focuses on the comprehensive process of designing and developing e-learning resources for both synchronous and asynchronous learning environments. Initially, it involves identifying the purpose, target group, and mode of delivery for the e-learning resources, along with analysing the characteristics and foundational skill requirements of the target group. This stage also entails accessing and analysing nationally recognised training products to align with skill and knowledge requirements, and understanding organisational procedures for e-learning resource development.
The planning phase is crucial, involving the assessment of personal skills and knowledge gaps in subject matter, industry relevance, and currency. This phase outlines the steps and timeframes for e-learning resource development, ensuring the plan is thoroughly documented and confirmed. The design phase then takes over, where various traditional and digital methods are explored to create engaging visual learning opportunities. Skills and knowledge are broken down into manageable sessions, with a focus on learner progression. The design approach is documented and confirmed, ensuring alignment with the purpose, target group, and delivery mode.
The development phase involves creating interactive media components, content shells, and activities to engage and support learners, incorporating tools for asynchronous learning and developing content for training VET teachers, trainers, and assessors. Trial and feedback stages are crucial for refining the resources, ensuring industry relevance, clarity, compliance with legislative requirements, and accuracy in content and formatting. Finally, the process concludes with a thorough review of the e-learning resource development, focusing on identifying areas for improvement in both the process and personal practice in developing these resources.
