Deciding On The Type Of eLearning Content You Should Create
As an eLearning professional, your goal is to create courses and modules that resonate with your audience. But what type of eLearning content is best if you want to deliver bite-sized chunks of information?
3 Types Of Content Learners Need
eLearning content usually fits into one of 3 categories: Performance support, learning experience, and information.
- Performance support incorporates learning tools and resources at a moment of need. In this instance, a learner might require a piece of information quickly to perform a task.
- A learning experience is content that builds skills and behaviors. This type of eLearning content is instrumental in changing perceptions. Unlike performance support, which quickly meets a learner’s demand for knowledge, learning experiences transform behaviors over a longer time.
- Information is content that sits somewhere between performance support and learning experience. This content supports learning performance, especially when there’s a context for its application. For example, you might create content about product knowledge that’s intended for experienced salespeople.
