Instructional Development: Making It Good, Fast, and Cheap

April 20, 2016

There’s a common saying that applies to most projects: Things can be done fast, cheap, or with quality—but you can only pick two. In practice, instructional developers don’t often get to make this choice. The eLearning projects they develop must be of high quality, and the projects still need to be delivered quickly and cheaply.

This Spotlight examines what it takes to quickly and inexpensively develop instructional materials—without sacrificing quality. The four targeted sessions will examine the tools, tips and tricks, templates, and management required to deliver high-quality projects on time and on budget.
