The Vox Siren team is at it again - this next year we’ll be breaking virtual ground, building the first digital learning experience for Girls Inc of the Pacific Northwest. We’ve set up and customized an online Learning Management System (LMS) and are having a great time designing the content. Digital learning creates opportunities by letting organizations meet the learner where they are at with flexible, go at your own pace activities.
We’ve had a lot of folks ask us about this process, so here are the basics.
Step 1: Design a Great Lesson
Digital learning should be fun, engaging and interactive (goodbye, Helvetica-laden slideshows!). To ensure this you need to start with a creative lesson design. Following best practices for teaching, craft a lesson arc that includes clear objectives, a fun hook and effective interaction for the learner to process the content, retain the knowledge and change behavior. Lesson design that engages strategically with the psychology of how people learn is the foundation of a strong online learning module!
Step 2: Find the Right Digital Tools
Now that you have a lesson, it’s time to translate it into a fun online fit. Need the hook to be interactive? Engage the learner with a choice. Need the activity to be social? Use discussion forums for social learning. Need to keep your learner engaged through a reading? Gamify the content with graphic rewards!
Step 3: Build the Content
This is the fun part! You have finished the lesson design with strategic tools for online interaction, now you get to make the content! Videos, games, animated graphics, interactive quizzes and audio stories - the possibilities are endless - all customized to your branding guidelines.
Vox Siren looks forward to sharing more about online learning. Stay tuned, we have lots of exciting news. We are gearing up to be the provider of effective, authentic, woman-driven education and creative change!
Vox Siren is a creative change agency focusing on innovative ways to promote gender equity. We bring transformation through illuminating stories, promoting skills and making the world safer for women and girls via art, digital learning and community experiences.
