Instructional designers use learning objectives to state specifically what the learner must be able to do. When writing your learning objectives, try to keep the following in mind:

  • Learning objectives should be learner centered

  • Learning objectives should break down the task and focus on specific cognitive processes

  • Learning objectives should use actionable verbs

  • Learning objectives should be measurable

Synapse makes it easy to create learning objectives, by providing users a framework to write your objectives.

Synapse suggests verbs to use for learning objectives or you can use a custom verb.
