Level 1-3 eLearning

Level 1

A Level 1 course closely resembles a slide presentation. For the most part, interaction is limited to using a computer mouse to activate rollovers and pop-ups, and click on hyperlinks or buttons that will open a new window in the course. The media component is limited to digital photographs and simple graphics (e.g., a flowchart)

Level 2

A level 2 course is more engaging, requires a medium level of instructional design, and uses activities such as low-level games (e.g. memory match and jeopardy), discovery through exploration activities, coupled with the use of various media and visual presentations. Examples include 2D and 3D graphics, 2D and 3D animations, audio and video, digital photographs, and the use of characters.

Level 3

A Level 3 course is much more engaging, requires a high level of instructional design, and may use simulated environments to complete the learning experience. Examples of simulated environments include a virtual world in which models of objects can be navigated and explored; or a social network in which learners are encouraged to collaborate with one another.
