6 Simple Steps To Creating Excellent eLearning Courses From Existing ILT Materials—Infographic
Today, companies are investing huge amounts in training their employees in order to improve productivity and customer satisfaction. Methods of training may include online training, Instructor-Led Training (ILT), simulations, on-the-job training, group discussions, coaching—each with its own advantages and disadvantages. What if a company wants to convert their existing ILT materials into an eLearning course? Existing ILT materials can be converted into an interactive and engaging curriculum by following 6 simple steps.
1. Collecting All The Inputs At One Place
Collecting all inputs and content-related documents including videos, PDFs, etc., and having a quick glance at them can help one decide what comes where and when.
2. Creating A Curriculum
If the ILT program covered different levels of training (beginner to advanced) then the eLearning content needs to be segregated into levels. Each level further needs to be divided into courses and modules.
3. Designing An Instructional Strategy
Analyzing the content gives a complete picture of the concept. Further, based on the content and learning objectives, the learning strategy, visual strategy, audio strategy, assessments, activities, etc., are finalized.
4. Standardizing The Designs
This involves standardizing the design and presentation with animations, interactivities, assessments, case studies, etc., and finalizing the colors and formatting content for the different levels of the course.
A prototype is designed with screens that show different types of content or interactivities, and an assessment and is sent to the client for the approval of the strategies and standards used.
6. Developing The eLearning Course Rapidly
After getting approval from the client, the actual development of the course is started.
