More and more companies and schools are moving towards an electronic learning model. This is moving some or all of that student-instructor interaction from the classroom to an online experience. Some classes are mixing instructors in a webinar room with self-guided lessons. In addition, they're also incorporating classroom time. We've seen a tremendous growth of what's called "blended learning" over the last few years, and this involves all three of those types of interactions.
There might be a webinar component, a classroom component, and a self-guided learning component, or perhaps some combination of those three. Many times e-learning is going to feature an online assessment, and this might include quizzing or perhaps click-through assessments. A click-through assessment is a way for a student to do some action in a simulation on a computer screen, and then the e-learning system will gather information about that interaction. If the student follows the steps in the appropriate order, then the student succeeds.
If the student doesn't follow the steps in the appropriate order, then they either fail the assessment, or they're given an opportunity to try again. When we talk about online courses, then we're talking about multiple interactions that get aggregated into one place. When we're thinking about parts of online courses, you might think about a single class or a single quiz or a single presentation that a student might interact with. All of those collected together would become a curriculum, or a course.
In order for an online course to function well, there usually needs to be some type of e-learning management system to either deliver that content or to track the student progress and achievement. There are many learning management systems out there, and depending on your company, or your school, you may have one or more of those in place. Later on in this course, we'll be looking at how we can take the results of our assessments and push them into e-learning systems. For now, feel free to explore this file which has been set up as a quiz inside of Captivate.
First, it consists of some instructions as video. Then there are some questions that get asked of the learner. These questions produce a pass or fail result, based on how well the learner does on the quizzes. Later on in the course, you're going to build this type of e-learning project with Captivate.
