A Very Articulate Talk from Tom Kuhlmann at ASTDNY Meeting
- Identify and engage the executive with final course sign off at the outset, and
- Make sure to involve a representative sampling of the target audience’s team in identifying the topics and presentation plans for the eLearning content.
That way, the course is more thoroughly and effectively vetted before it is built, saving everyone time and potential headaches. I would also add that for companies who keep their learning teams small, it’s that much more important to have a well-thought-out archival system in place, to keep a record of what has been created (and agreed to in writing with clients), and ensure that all source files area readily available should the chief eLearning team member be out or leave the company.
- Offer good instruction (meaningful content and interactions)
- Leverage graphic and visual design (learn to communicate visually; look everywhere for free or affordable graphics)
- Practice efficient production with tools (become fluent with your tool; don’t settle for basic skills)
- Build reusable interactions and templates
- Assemble your resources, and then commit to making them successful
