eLearning activities are a vital component of any eLearning experience, but what are they, why are they important and which activities are best?

For each learning message we want to convey to the learner, our goals as an instructional designer must be to:

  1. engage the learner;
  2. clearly communicate the message or point of learning for understanding; and
  3. reinforce understanding of the message for long-term recall.

Well-designed and context-appropriate eLearning activities can serve all three of the learning goals.

Activities, as opposed to resources or passive items of content, must involve active engagement, and ideally, interact with eLearning content.
