Is Your Training Material Ready for eLearning?

Key Considerations for High-Impact eLearning

May 27, 2021
1 Hour (45 mins + 15 mins of Q&A)

You publish the content in your PPT into an authoring tool. But the end product doesn't quite deliver the results you expected. Sounds familiar?

For classroom training material to be converted to eLearning, it has to ‘treated’ instructionally – by doing these and more:

  1. Setting performance-based learning objectives
  2. Filling content gaps
  3. Adding interactivities
  4. Incorporating assessments

And to do this, instructional designers can’t always work in silos. They’ll need inputs from subject matter experts, especially if the topic is complex or proprietary. They’ll need to consult stakeholders and/or training managers to decide the format and structure of the online training program.

So, eLearning design and development is an intricate process involving different roles and ensuring your content is ready for conversion will smoothen the way ahead. For example, do you have access to your facilitator’s script or do you just have the PowerPoint deck with a few bullets onscreen? Do you need to source content from scratch, or do you have fully ready storyboards ready to be published with a tool such as iSpring?

This webinar will help you take stock of how ready your training material is for eLearning and shares 3 high-level considerations which will get you started in the right direction. You wouldn’t want to miss the part on aligning classroom activities with their counterparts in eLearning. Join us to understand:
