An E-learning professional spends countless hours to come up with the concept and convert the same into an E-learning course. Lot of time, money and efforts are put in to make it a success. So once they are done developing the module its time to proofread the same to ensure that the quality of your E-learning module is not diminished and work towards delivering the most effective learning module. In this article I will be highlighting few points that helps at the time of proofreading your E-learning course.

Check the relevance of your learning goals and objectives with the module: Make a smart move by going through your module before launching it. Check whether the module developed fulfills the requirements stated by the clients. Ensure that the content developed is error-free and relevant to the organizations learning goals and objectives.

Check on the mistakes you commonly make: It is completely normal to make mistakes and we all have one weak point where we often go wrong. Some might be weak in spellings and some in punctuation and grammar. So, it is important to be aware of the mistakes we commonly make, so that it becomes easier to find the error and rectify it at the time of proofreading.

Sufficient time for proofreading: Remember proofreading does not happen in one go. You need to allocate a sufficient amount of time for it, you might even have to proofread it multiple times to ensure quality. So, you can break down the sessions into smaller editing and proofreading sessions to ensure that you don’t get carried away by the task and miss out on the crucial part. Prepare a schedule and allot specific day and time for each task so that you don’t rush and put all your time and effort to make the module more effective.

Cut down the lengthy sentences: While going through the module pay attention to not only the content but also how it is presented. Don’t overload the information and create unnecessary confusion for the learners. Keep things short and simple and if there is a lot of information which cannot be ignored then use bullet points to make it easier to understand.

Ensure that the module is simple and easy to navigate: Avoid using complex content for your module and keep it simple for better understanding. Create a module that can be navigated without any hassle by providing its access to the learners using any medium. This will help the learners in getting all the flexibility and encourage the learners in active participation and completing the module successfully on time.

Knowing which mistakes to look out for can help you to make the proofreading process even less stressful and more productive.
