How do you prioritize creativity in the face of tight deadlines and limited resources? What can you do to balance a desire to create innovative eLearning with the needs of your business stakeholders? What are the tradeoffs every eLearning professional must make to be engaging, effective and efficient? Whether you're an instructional designer, an eLearning developer, or a manager, you've undoubtedly faced these challenges. Your organization wants quality training content on time and on budget - you just need to examine your options.

Participants in this case-study session will learn how the curriculum development team makes the most of the tools and resources they already have through innovative collaboration methods and a straightforward instructional design approach. You'll learn that whatever your time and money constraints, the talent of your team is your greatest asset. You'll be able to validate that you share the problems you face with people from organizations of all shapes and sizes, and you'll get practical advice on how one company has successfully faced this challenge by using instructional design and collaboration strategies unrestricted by time and money constraints.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to make a business case for eLearning innovation
  • Strategies for innovation that are unrestricted by time and money constraints
  • Collaboration strategies that accelerate innovation
  • How to manage stakeholder expectations and communicate progress

Intermediate designers, developers, project managers, and managers. Participants should have some experience building/managing eLearning in a fast-paced environment.
