Online course development

At Social Weaver, we are combining our expertise in training and digital media to develop online courses.

We are taking our most popular courses online, as well as developing courses for organisations and experts in other fields.

Social Weaver uses the LearnDash Learning Management System, which can be hosted on our website. LearnDash is used by many universities and companies internationally.

Social Weaver has developed course material on LearnDash for the Storylab Academy (a joint initiative of Code for Africa, Google News Lab and the World Bank). For example, see the Verification course, which looks at how to identify problematic information and verify the authenticity and accuracy of images, videos and reports on social media and elsewhere online.

Our online courses can be completed on any device that has internet access, i.e. desktop, laptop, tablet or phone. Participants progress through lessons at any time that suits them, and can switch between devices, picking up where they left off.  

Learners complete each lesson by working through the topics and then doing a short quiz. If they attain a predetermined pass mark they are permitted to proceed to the next lesson.

The content of the lessons and topics is multimedia in nature and combines the following elements to make the learning experience fun, engaging and rewarding:

  • videos
  • slideshows
  • images
  • text
  • other interactive elements

Videos will be kept short to reduce data consumption.

Learners can also be encouraged to participate in live webinars, which will be recorded and made available online for those who aren’t available at the scheduled time. 

LearnDash admin reports include:

  • Course Progress: each learner’s courses and their progress in each one
  • Quiz Performance: learner’s quiz attempts, if they passed, and their score
  • Time on Course: how long a learner has spent on a course
  • Live Activity Stream: how learners are interacting with course content in real-time
  • Progress Breakdown: graphical representation of how far learners are in a particular course
