Clients come to eLearning developers with many questions and preconceived ideas about generally what's possible and specifically what's feasible. Maybe all they've ever seen are poorly developed read-and-click courses or maybe they want rapid eLearning, but don't know exactly what that means. As a developer, you know there are many factors to consider including focus, timeline, design, scope, and content development. How can you and your client have an informed, common understanding when you have your initial discussion?

In this session, you will explore a framework and a micro-course that you can use to support the initial discussion with a client. The micro-course is freely available and includes an interactive matrix of course development factors and four versions of the same eLearning course. After this session, you can immediately use this tool with your client prior to your initial discussion so you can have an informed discussion and best meet your client's needs and expectations.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Four categories of eLearning development
  • How the same content can be developed into four categories of eLearning
  • The key factors you should consider when planning and developing eLearning
  • How to use this framework and micro-course to support your initial client discussion
