P04 BYOD: Getting Started With the eLearning Development Process
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Monday, October 21
When you're new to eLearning, the process of creating an eLearning course can seem like a total mystery. And while you might feel like you're the only one who feels completely overwhelmed, the truth is all new eLearning designers face the same struggles. The good news is that getting started with the eLearning development process doesn't have to be as complicated as it might appear—you just need to know where to start!
In this workshop, you'll explore everything you need to know about the eLearning development process from beginning to end. You'll start by looking why it's important to follow a process when developing your first eLearning course and then take a deep dive into each step one at a time. You'll explore how to work with your stakeholders and subject matter experts to plan your eLearning project, how to draft a storyboard, how to develop your eLearning course, and finally, how to review and deliver your eLearning course to your learners. Along the way, you'll put each step into practice by creating a project plan and timeline, drafting a storyboard, and developing and reviewing a prototype.
In this session, you will learn:
- The five steps to the eLearning development process
- How to work with your stakeholders and subject matter experts to plan your project and draft a project plan and timeline
- How to collect your learning content and organize it into a storyboard
- How to choose an eLearning authoring tool and develop a prototype
- How to review your eLearning course and conduct a quality assurance check
- Methods for delivering your eLearning course to your learners
Basic knowledge of instructional design and use of Microsoft Word/PowerPoint
PowerPoint, Word, Articulate Storyline
Participants will need a laptop with Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. For the prototyping section, Articulate Storyline is preferred (the trial version is okay), but attendees may also use another eLearning development tool if they’re already comfortable with it. If a participant doesn’t have access to an eLearning authoring tool, they can use PowerPoint as a prototyping alternative.
