How to Prepare Learning Solutions Content
Once you’ve agreed on a topic with the editor, you’ll discuss:
Prior to publication, the editor may:
Executive: This category focuses on enterprise-level strategy. Content here caters to those that are responsible for an entire organization’s L&D strategy, and how that strategy fits within the larger organizational strategy. The people engaged at this level are likely dedicating all of their time to strategic work; they are rarely themselves involved in the tactical design and development of L&D programs.
Management: This category focuses on management-level strategy, usually in the scope of managing a training team and in managing the programs created by the team. Content here caters to those that are responsible for a team of L&D professionals, including the L&D strategy within that scope. The people engaged at this level are often balancing strategic work for their team with more tactical design and development of L&D programs.
Design: This category focuses on the non-technical process of designing learning programs. Content here targets topics related to what should be built, the look and feel of programs, the user experience that learners will have, and in creating a solution that meets the stakeholders requirements. The people engaged at this level may be fully dedicated designers, or also be involved in the development of projects.
Development: This category focuses on the technical process of building learning programs. Content here targets topics related to how things are built, the complex, “under-the-hood” functionality of programs, creating interactivity, and in building solutions based off an approved design spec. The people engaged at this level may be fully dedicated developers, or may also be involved in the design of projects.
Technology: This category focuses on the technologies used to design, develop, and manage learning programs. Content here targets the technologies themselves, providing understanding of what the technologies do and the value they have to the work done in L&D. The people engaged in this content may be designers, developers, and/or managers. NOTE: Technology is going to be present in all categories. Content in this category answers “Help me better understand this technology”. If the content talks about a technology from a “Show me how to use this technology”, it would likely be better suited in one of the more role-specific categories.
