Many organizations are looking to migrate all of their employee training content into eLearning, which can save employers time and money. However, finding the right eLearning solution can be a long difficult process. Here are the top 3 things you should look for when searching for your next eLearning Solution:
To develop a new eLearning curriculum, you need to work with a professional Learning and Development (L&D) team. When selecting a team, be sure to look at their previous work to make sure you see potential for your own content. An experienced team will help you to develop a plan and guide you through the process of developing the perfect L&D solution for your specific needs. You also should look for a team that will help you to make any changes that you may need in the future.
Up to Date Learning Management System
A Learning Management System (LMS) is used to host all eLearning content. You should look for an LMS that will centralize all of your content and data tracking, making your job easier and more organized. You also may want an LMS that can provide a personalized user experience. Since not all learners will have the same jobs, experiences, and background knowledge, their learning needs may also vary. “Adaptive assessments and quizzes that reflect a learner’s performance throughout a course will enable users to prioritize improvement areas” (Baron, n.d)
When searching for an instructional designer, or an L&D company, make sure they will work with you each step of the way. It is also your responsibility to remain active throughout the process as you want to ensure the final product meets your expectations and your needs. Ask your instructional designer how they will keep you involved throughout the process. “Ideally, the eLearning development company should have use some collaboration platform (e.g. Basecamp, Slack, etc.), where you can share documents, read early drafts, make comments and even discuss the course creation process in real time when needed” (Andriotis, 2016).
The process of finding and implementing an eLearning solution can be stressful, but working with the right team will make the process exciting and easy. Transitioning to eLearning is a great way to save time and money for both employers and employees while implementing an effective training solution.
