Online Learning Objectives Generators - Part III

This entry is a companion piece to two related posts on free online learning objectives generators:
  1. Part I - Radio Daze (and its update Radio James Returns!)
  2. Part II - More Online Learning Objectives Generators
In my previous two posts, I presented some free, interactive web-based resources aimed at helping educators craft measurable learning objectives. Since that time, there are several more that have been brought to my attention that I would like to share:
  • UCF’s builder creates objectives in the Condition, Audience, Behavior, and Degree (CABD) format using a variety of proven frameworks. It starts with an example, then asks the user to fill in information for each of its four categories. Throughout the process there are links to theoretical learning domain research and definitions of related terminology.

  • Divided into Who?, What?, and How?, this simple generator fills in as you type and offers a list of almost 160 action verbs. It also allows you to add your own. After entering the learning task and condition, an objective is generated. It can even be emailed to your inbox.

  • This no-frills generator presents the user with five blank form fields with specific questions centered on level of learning, conditions that will be in place, and performance level. Filling in each part and submitting your responses results in an objective assembled from your answers. 

  • Another five-part generator in which the user enters information about the audience, behavior, condition, degree, and method. This generator also allows you to choose from approximately 84 action verbs in a drop-down list.
