Today, many organizations are promoting eLearning as a means to reduce travel costs and to provide a convenient method for their employees to learn at their own pace. Goodwill Industries Manasota made a commitment to convert several classroom courses to an eLearning format as part of a workforce development program. When they deemed a course appropriate for online delivery, the course content was preserved. However, they had to redesign and enhance it to match the requirements of the online learning experience.

In this case-study session you will explore the process Goodwill Industries Manasota went through when it converted an instructor-led training (ILT) course into a web-based training (WBT) course. You’ll also get the lessons learned along the way.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The steps involved in converting an ILT course into an online course
  • Why it is important to be culturally sensitive with your examples and photos
  • How using stories and exercises engages the learner
  • What it took for the organization to embrace eLearning in lieu of ILT classes

Novice and intermediate designers and developers who have a basic understanding of the ADDIE (analysis, design, development, implementation, evaluation) model, have experienced an eLearning class, and are somewhat familiar with the concept of an LMS.
