A while ago, over 100 learning professionals were asked what one thing most annoys them about online learning materials. Their responses were both varied and – significantly – many.

Of these, the 13 most annoying traits of online learning materials were:

Patronizing the learner

• Having a section called ‘How to use this e-learning module’.

• Spelling out the materials’ objective, such as, ‘By the end of this module you will have learnt…’

• Text-heavy sections labelled ‘Background’ or ‘History’, and the related issue of getting learners to read a company policy in the guise of it being ‘e-learning’.
