As a learning professional, your project budgets may be shrinking. You’re being asked to do more with less. Do you ever wish you had a library of free or low-cost tools at your fingertips? Now you can! There are plenty of free or low-cost tools available if you know where to look.

This session will show you how you can “design on a dime” and still deliver high-quality, engaging, and effective blended learning solutions. You will gain a budget toolkit for any situation. This toolkit has been put to the test by designing and implementing a real-life learning solution at as close to zero cost as possible. This zero-budget project will spark practical ideas and provide an amazing toolkit you can apply right away.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to stretch your budget by considering creative uses for free tools
  • Which tool to use at each stage of the project (project management, design, development, and delivery)
  • How to determine when it’s worth it to purchase the paid version of a tool, and when the free version is all you need
  • How to leverage innovative mobile tools to engage your audience
  • Clever ways to save on multimedia production (including voice-overs and translations)
  • How to access free course content
