WHY do online course designers insist on using Learning Objectives like:

    • “Understand the policies & procedures required in driving a car & the roles you may play as a driver of a car”

instead of

    • “Safely Drive a car”???

Or, since it’s kinda hard to demonstrate “safely driving a car” online, how about

  • “Explain/Identify/List five important things to do/not do when driving a car”

Then have an activity where they’re asked to do just that!!

It’s really pretty simple…
