LS402 Applying Agile Concepts to eLearning Development

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Wednesday, March 22

Management and Strategy

International North

Since the 1970s, waterfall methodologies such as ADDIE have been accepted as the standard development approach for eLearning. Today, many organizations are required to keep up with rapidly changing content while also decreasing the time to deliver new courses. Traditional waterfall methodologies have become inefficient, and eLearning professionals have started looking to incorporate agile concepts into their processes to keep up with this new rate of change.

In this session, you’ll take a closer look at the compelling reasons to adopt agile concepts into your eLearning development process. You’ll find out how key concepts such as release planning, iterations, sprints, standups, and more can make your development more nimble and efficient. This session will also help you evaluate some of the basic principles of agile development to determine how you can adopt the ones that best fit your organization’s needs.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How agile development concepts differ from the approaches you may already be using, and why it may be a good fit for your organization
  • How exactly this approach can improve your efficiency, decrease the time needed to release new content, and increase stakeholder satisfaction
  • How you can apply these concepts to your eLearning development process

Novice to intermediate designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
