How to achieve effective and compelling online learning content

Sian Hamlett, CEO of Hamlett Films, reveals her four top tips to achieve the best results for your learners:

  • Hit your criteria. The films have value to the learner – they need to pass. The films aren’t just pretty. You absolutely need to understand the course the learner is on.
  • Only offer manageable, bite-size chunks of information. These make it much easier for the student to digest.

  • Make sure educational materials are reusable on subsequent courses and valuable to learners across time.
