Quite often, there is a strong focus on creating content for e-learning resources. When reviewing a third party e-learning resource, we were amazed by the quality and media of the content. And then to the assessment … shocked! Multiple choice questions requiring  learners to drag their choice to a box and drop it. Not the best assessment – in terms of quality and structure! It started our quest for sex-e-assessment … the focus on ‘sexy’ product was excessive in blended learning resources.

Design Steps for 'Doing' E-learning

The quest for sex-e-assessment started with a 5 step approach to assessment-based e-learning. We started to think how e-learning resources could be created by focusing on assessment rather than content.

The educational design flow was based on:

Assessment first > Scaffolding Activities > Underpinning Knowledge

An e-assessment concept was endorsed by the National VET Strategy and Glenn’s leadership enabled Learning Solutions to receive $50000 in funding to work up the Tourism and Hospitality concept for an NBN project.
