Course Design: Analysis

Step 1 of the Course Design Process

In this step of the course design process, you will analyze your learners and the context in which learning is taking place. These are called Learner Analysis and Context Analysis. Some questions you will ask are:

  • Who are the learners?
  • Where will the learning take place?
  • Where will the learning be applied?

To help you answer the questions above, try filling out our Learner and Context Analysis Template. The videos below will help guide you through this process.
