Continuum’s overall approach to all e-learning content design is guided by four principles that should be applied to modern technology-based learning environments (cited by Hedberg 2003):
We employ the following methodologies in creating e-learning:
- Learning is an active and engaged process.
- Learning is the process of constructing knowledge
- Learners are focused on thinking skills rather than working on the “right answer the teacher wants.”
- Learning involves “social negotiation”…challenge their thoughts, beliefs, perceptions and existing knowledge by collaboration with other students.
- Recognized e-learning training practices and standards, with the “inform and perform” e-learning goal.
- Use the methodology of evidence-based decision-making, tracking the training and feedback.
- We use research gathered from learners in field tests and apply the research collected to the updates and future modules.
- Employ options that include a feedback survey directly in the training that learners can complete after they have completed the e-learning modules. The results can be categorized by user and by question.
