101 Nuts and Bolts of eLearning on a Budget

8:15 AM - 9:30 AM Wednesday, April 22

Sure, eLearning solutions can provide enormous savings, but start-up and design costs can be prohibitive. Join Jane Bozarth, author of E-learning Solutions on a Shoestring, to explore examples of inexpensive—even free!— eLearning solutions.

We’ll look at:

  • Making the “buy vs. build” decision
  • Identifying inexpensive means of adding interactivity and visual interest
  • Making better use of tools and resources, including those you already have
  • Breaking down examples of online training programs into essential parts and identify ways of cutting costs to produce similar products
  • Leveraging social and collaboration tools to extend learning beyond formal courses
  • Identifying some key behaviors and attitudes of successful “shoestringers”
