Welcome to the world of eLearning! Whether you’re interested in eLearning and its possibilities, or you're considering transitioning content into an eLearning format, this course is for you.  


eLearning: Foundations is Part I of an engaging, social learning suite of courses that provides you with access to learning experiences, activities and a comprehensive knowledge base.

Connect with other learners over the 5-week course, sharing ideas, experiences, and your artefacts of learning, while you continue to expand your eLearning professional network.

Join the regular 90-minute virtual collaborative sessions (weeks 1, 3 and 5) delivered via MS Teams and accessed directly through the learning platform.

The highlight of eLearning: Foundations is the practical component, a culmination of the interactions and activities you will have completed throughout the course.

eLearning: Foundations is structured to include facilitated online content, learning activities, discussions and the practical component delivery.  It will provide you with an understanding of the in-depth eLearning principles, terminology, technology and how eLearning fits in the learning and development world.   


By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • articulate the different types of eLearning
  • understand the terminology used when working with eLearning
  • recognise where eLearning fits in with a broader learning and organisation strategy
  • demonstrate skills required to write, design, build and deliver eLearning
  • discuss learning methodologies and frameworks
  • explain the common tools and technologies used in eLearning
  • develop a design proposal to support a business function or project.


This course is most suitable for L&D and HR professionals, facilitators and teachers who want to learn how to develop a strategy for transitioning their learning programs from face-to-face to an online learning environment.
