Interactive e-learning is considered a must in developing e-learning programs, curriculum, courses, and modules. This course teaches students how to apply various interactive e-learning practices to real-world learning settings, while providing students with a hands-on opportunity to build their own interactive module using a variety of technologies and techniques. Intended for students with interactive e-learning design experience already, dive more deeply into advanced practices for applying interactive e-learning designs, with specific emphasis on the utilization of gamification, simulations, scenario-based learning, badging, credentialing, social learning, and other cutting edge interactive e-learning approaches. Discuss the role of usability and user testing in developing more complex interactive e-learning experiences.
