Abstract

This article aims to present learning strategies that can be applied to OpenWHO online courses to primarily increase learning retention and nudge behavior change where applicable. This paper draws on existing research on learning strategies and takes an innovative approach to recommend how these strategies could be applied to learning design to support online learners. Thus, by examining recent cognitive science literature, this critical reflection paper presents approaches to design effective online courses that improve learning retention or nudge changes in behavior where necessary.
