An e-LCET review of the Greenline Conversations elearning course
The Greenline Conversations course teaches the learner about relationships and conversations in the workplace. It focuses on how to have effective conversations which achieve shared goals, and avoid having time-wasting conversations which are not productive.
To provide this understanding the Greenline course uses coaching techniques and psychological research via audio, video, illustrations and knowledge-reinforcement tests to provide a genuinely interesting and useful piece of high-level learning.
The course has been in development for 5 years and has been adapted from a traditional classroom environment. It is a tried and tested piece of extremely effective learning.
To begin an e-LCET review we look at the genres which make up an elearning course. This helps to provide users with an understanding of how the course will be presented, and if it will be effective for them.
It also provides a useful way to judge the quality of course: if a course contains a lot of video and receives a high score for its video content, then this demonstrates that the course is good quality.

The Greenline Conversations course focuses on audio and video, often using a presenter to convey information. As the information and terminology used in the course is complex, this is an effective method of presentation as it is clear and easy to understand.

There are also application exercises for the learner to apply, and thereby reinforce, their learning by using it in their workplace.

The total scores out of 6 for each genre are shown above and, as you can see, the Greenline Conversations course scores highly in its principal genres of Audio, Video, Text, Assessment and Links.
As these principal genres make up most of the Greenline course, and they each score highly, we know that the Greenline course is a quality piece of learning.
The Greenline course scored so highly because it uses a variety of simple yet extremely effective presentation techniques.
