This course is taught over 6 sessions across semester 1 and 2. The course forms part of a cluster of 2 courses which together are referred to as the "E-learning/LLN" cluster; the other unit of the E-learning/LLN cluster is TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills. In every session various elements will be covered from each unit in the cluster.
Note: While your teacher will cover all the material in this schedule, the weekly order is subject to change depending on class needs.
Overview of course content and assessment requirements. The overview will summarise and define the nature of various e-learning resources and explain how language, literacy and numeracy issues are addressed during their design and development.
Determine the scope and research the e-learning resource
Analyse LLN requirements
Design the e-learning resource
Select and use resources and strategies to address LLN skill requirements
Develop the e-learning resource
