The current trend is for companies to run as efficiently as possible, which means tight budgets and minimal headcount. According to a survey conducted by The eLearning Guild, 80 percent of eLearning departments consist of five employees or less. If you are one of those individuals in a very small department, it's probably challenging for you to meet the time demands of handling every detail related to creating and administering online training while also keeping spending within a restricted budget.

This session will help one- or few-person shops maximize time and resources through personal and peer-gathered experience on not only how to survive in this environment ... but thrive. This session, which will include a group discussion on tested best practices, is packed with a wealth of knowledge and valuable takeaways that participants can immediately take back to their respective organizations.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Innovative strategies to save time, so you can devote more time to your highest priorities
  • How to prepare SMEs (and other cooks in your eLearning kitchen), so development work is streamlined
  • Which tools are best for novice users, and how they can save both short-term and long-term time
  • How to get the most out of a tight budget
  • Where to find free or cheap training access assets and resources

Novice-to-advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers, and anyone with a very small eLearning department.
