SLEAR Series Part 1: AI Integration for Effective Learning

This is part 1 of a 3-part blog series.


Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3

The landscape of L&D has experienced a profound evolution, marked by the fast adoption of e-learning, which has been propelled to the forefront by the demand for innovative educational solutions.


What was once a promising alternative swiftly became a necessity as traditional classrooms became less accessible. Amid these transformations though, a big question arises: “What happens when we integrate AI into the world of L&D?”


At the heart of these concerns lies a real pain point: the challenge of seamlessly integrating AI into educational practices to produce engaging and effective learning activities. In this series of blogs, we will explore just how we can leverage AI in e-learning, where the latter is no longer a buzzword but a catalyst for change.


Why the delay?
Many educators and institutions face the following dilemmas when integrating AI into their educational initiatives:

Lack of Guidance

Lack of clear guidance on how to harness AI's capabilities to create enriching educational experiences.

Lack of Training

Lack the necessary training to effectively use AI tools.


Hard time overcoming the inertia associated with introducing AI-powered tools and methodologies.

The framework we’ll unveil in this series of posts aims to address this pain point directly, providing a structured approach to leverage AI for content creation while preserving the essential human elements that make learning memorable and impactful.

The SLEAR framework

Let’s dive into our SLEAR framework – a comprehensive approach designed to seamlessly integrate AI into our content creation processes.

Set the Scene

Develop the learning context before starting the design process.

  • Topic
  • Key Concepts
  • Mode of Delivery
  • Duration

Learning Outcomes

Design clear (LOs) learning objectives to curate the outcome.

  • Surface Learning
  • Deep Learning
  • Transfer Learning


Measure whether the LO’s have been met:

  • Formative Assessment
  • Summative Assessment
  • Self-assessment


Design activities with an instructional design method:

  • Directed Learning
  • Scenario-based Learning
  • Problem Based Learning
  • Project Based Learning


Identify which AI tool can help you curate your activity and redesign your learning experience.

  • AI Image Apps
  • AI Video Apps
  • AI Quiz Apps
  • etc

Our example course

a) Check out our original course

It’s very bare bones, and requires major editing, both visually and content-wise. Let’s run it through the SLEAR framework to revamp it.

b) Check out the revamped course

This is how the course looks like after the revamp through the SLEAR framework.

Now let’s move on to our next blog to see how we did it.
