The strategies of building the "good content" of LMS blended learning are as follows:
1.Learner-centered, tailoring contents that suit the learners the most
There is no doubt that the teaching content serves study, so only the learners can judge whether or not a content is good, and the evaluation standard should be based on the learning effect. The learning effects of the same content of LMS blended learning are different from person to person, and a good content can satisfy the learners' needs. Of course, in many cases, it is costly or unrealistic to provide "tailored" LMS blended e learning contents for each consumer, but it is not impossible. On the one hand, we can stimulate the learners' interest in learning, and let them search for their own suitable content independently; on the other hand, the online blended learning contents should be refined as far as possible, or they should be based on the work tasks of the employees, We ought to provide customized contents for a certain group of people and improve the pertinence of the content.
2.Strengthening the extraction and refining of knowledge
With the advent of the Web 2.0 era, we have entered the "self media" era. Now we can easily publish any content through free micro-blog, WeChat, blog, etc., and search almost anything through the powerful search engines. Besides, there is free and public encyclopedia helping achieve "crowdsourcing", and free teaching websites for launching courses and learning. However, from the perspective of e learning blended learning, the "content" on the Internet has a fatal shortcoming, that is, there are good and bad mixed together. Therefore, in order to create "good content" of LMS blended learning, we must strengthen the extraction and refinement of knowledge, or turn to "content experts".
3. Focusing on business scenario matching
The design of LMS blended learning content should be based on the situation and the learners' business scenario so as to simulate the real environment, which not only helps the employees to solve the problems directly, arouses their enthusiasm for learning, but also facilitates the transformation of learning. In fact, quite a lot scholars believe that knowledge is different from information, it relies on specific situations and is related to action ability. Therefore, the "good content" originates from the needs of the learners, it is designed and delivered in combination with their business application scenarios, so as to improve the learning effect.
4. Carefully designing conversion strategy
As mentioned above, the content serves learning, so the “good content" of online and blended learning should have corresponding application guide and transformation strategy, that is, how to promote the learners to digest and absorb these contents, internalize these contents into their knowledge, and promote the changes of ability and behavior. In this sense, "good content" can not only be "content", it should include the design of teaching transformation strategy, learning path planning and flexible and lively forms of expression, so as to meet the needs of different learners.
