A checklist for reviewing elearning courses can be really useful for teachers and student alike. As the trend towards online learning and the use of online learning platforms continues to soar, it is vital to make sure that the courses we create are productive and of quality. Our checklist encompasses aspects, such as learning goals, course framework, engagement, and interactivity, appraisal and feedback, accessibility and user-friendliness, technical excellence, support, and resources.
With this checklist, both educators and learners can evaluate eLearning courses to guarantee they fulfil the learners’ requirements and objectives, offering a productive and positive learning experience.
