  1. Develop measurable performance goals:

We want to make it clear that learning goals and performance goals are two different things. The main difference between these two goal-setting methods is that performance goals are designed to achieve measurable results. If your workforce isn’t able to perform their newly acquired skill properly in a real-life scenario after the completion of your online training course, then proper performance goals weren’t set. Consider how your performance goals will clearly define the desired outcomes and how they can be assessed, observed and measured afterwards. It is essential to include real-life scenarios in your online training material. This will help employees to discover their weaknesses and improve them by implementing their newly thought skills.

  1. Understand your eLearning course audience:

Before defining your performance goals, you need to have a clear understanding of who your core audience is. You need to consider their current knowledge and experience. Then you need to analyse what they are hoping to achieve by taking part in the online training event. Also, understand how to results of the eLearning course will be measured. To identify the functions and procedures, you need to focus on during the upskilling process; you need to carry out in-depth research into current practices. This will help you to offer training to your staff in problem areas.

  1. Always indicate how acquired knowledge converts to real life action:

What makes performance goals unique is that it indicates how your workforce can apply what they’ve just learned in their work environment. Overall, performance goals are implemented successfully if your employees can use their new knowledge to be better at their daily job requirements. When you are compiling your performance goals, we advise that you include action words like “apply” and “achieve”. Be precise about what your eLearning course has to offer so that your employees understand what they will be able to do once they have completed the course.

To conclude, these eLearning performance goal tips will help your upskilling strategy to be effective, productive and cost efficient.
