Managing learner expectations - long courses
Looking for some tips on how to manage learner expectations with long courses. We design courses on the LMS with several scorm packages that must be worked through to complete the course.
Apart from indicating the duration on the course, I'm looking for any ideas/tips to make the learner feel less overwhelmed when accessing the course for the first time. Its orientation to new systems...which in itself can be intimidating.
I thought of dispersing "coffee break" slides at strategic points throughout the course encouraging them to take a break before continuing - any other suggestions are most welcome.
