Converting an Existing Course to e-Learning or Multimedia
Your existing training course will have value. It is a substantial asset of knowledge and experience. We will normally work very closely with the existing knowledge owners to develop the new interactive online e-learning or disc based training material. Our first steps would be to...
- agree with you the audience, the objectives and the scope of the content, and whether there will need to be different levels of content for different learners
- review all the existing training course material - trainer's manual, Powerpoint and video presentations, workbooks and handouts
- attend the existing training course as a course participant to see where your learners find the topic easy, where they ask questions and where they need help
in other words controlling access to the e-learning package and recording completion, pass, fail, etc. can be achieved inexpensively through links to a simple database or through an open source (ie free) tool such as Moodle. Alternatively you can use a proprietary Learning Management System (or LMS), which will offer a range of recording, reporting and analytical functions. Many Learning Management Systems are tied to an authoring tool and also require royalty or maintenance payments - usually so much per "seat" or user per year. We can supply and programme the inexpensive CoursePlay LMS, for which a one-off licence fee allows unlimited user without ongoing royalties. It is often important to find out what version of SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model) the LMS uses and whether it includes various optional elements. This may influence the degree of interactivity you can offer your learners. You'll need to talk to your IT Department about this.
At Enlightenment Interactive we do NOT charge maintenance or "per seat" fees. Once you have paid for the e-learning you have commissioned from us, it's yours. There will be a charge for hosting if you need this, but most clients put the e-learning on their own servers. If the disc or web based learning package needs updating in the future, we'll quote a fair price that reflects the amount of work involved.
