When you’re creating an online course, it’s easy to get tunnel vision and focus solely on your content. After all, the content of your online course is the most important thing to your audience, right? Well, maybe; however, for those folks who decide to invest in your online course, they’re looking for more than raw content. They’re looking for a transformative learning experience, one that will help them get from where they are now to where they want to be in the future. This is true regardless of the topic of your online course.
While the content of your online course is the foundation of what you’re providing, it’s the experience you build around your content that will make it engaging and effective. And this is where the principles of Learning Experience Design (LXD) can help.
