Not using real-world examples and case studies in an online course can be a mistake because it can make the material seem abstract and difficult for learners to relate to. Real-world examples and case studies can help bring the content to life and make it more relevant and meaningful for learners.
Here are some ways to incorporate real-world examples and case studies into your online course:
Use examples from your own experience or from the experiences of others, such as colleagues or industry experts.
Use examples from current events or news stories to illustrate key concepts and show how they apply in the real world.
Present case studies or scenarios that allow learners to apply their knowledge and skills to real-world problems or situations.
Use multimedia resources, such as videos, podcasts, or articles, to provide learners with a more diverse range of real-world examples.
By using real-world examples and case studies, you can help learners see the relevance and practical application of the material in your online course, which can increase their engagement and motivation to learn.
