Course alignment is crucial for successful learning. If the content of a course does not align with the course objectives then chances are the objectives will not be met. When designing an online course, a lot of thought and planning should go into the structure. The desired outcome(s) of a course should be the primary focus in the design process. In this session we will discuss course alignment through learning objectives and assessment. We will outline a strategy for building alignment within your course and hopefully provide you with some information you can use when structuring your next eLearning offering.
