The purpose of a course should be to provide students with relevant content that is packed with useful information, it's easy to understand, and helps students reach their learning goals.
- Make the content visually appealing
An e-learning course should include a variety of elements that make it more appealing and keeps the students engaged. Make sure that the content is clean, easy to follow, and includes resources such as pictures, videos, and other multimedia files.
- Use gamification
Students enjoy gamified elements such as leaderboards, earning points, and badges because they make the learning experience more enjoyable and drive participation.
- Allow students to collaborate
It's important for students to talk with each other about the class, exchange resouces, and collaborate on projects. That's why class tools such as groups, chat rooms, forums, blogs, and wikis are a great way for them to connect.

Stories make courses more interesting, intriguing, and motivate students to learn more. For students it's easier to remember the concepts if they are taught through inspirational stories that excite them.
