      • The Devil is in the Details - eLearning Considerations and Client Consulting TipsInterchangeability (Modularity)Identify what type of LMS/LCMS the client has and how they handle knowledge management.Identify if they typically integrate access to knowledge management systems through elearning.Identify the different audience types that need to be considered for this learning.Determine the types of content that are common across audience types. Design modules accordingly.MaintainabilityIdentify the authoring tools that the client has licenses for including versions and upgrade plans.Determine the ease at which elearning can be maintained on an ongoing basis for each authoring tool being considered. Potential considerations include whether the client has the internal expertise to make updates and plans to upgrade authoring tools that are not backward compatible.Given the type of content and audience profile, recommend the appropriate elearning authoring tool keeping in mind maintainability issues.Determine the ongoing maintenance strategy for this particular elearning project.Compatibility (Interoperability)Create an elearning prototype and test within the QA environment of the client's LMS.Identify whether there are near-term plans to upgrade the LMS. Research discussion boards to determine whether there are any known issues between the client's LMS and the authoring tool being used. UsabilityConduct a usability test with the target audience using a workable prototype with all navigation elements.Recommend implementing an ongoing support strategy to answer both content and technical-related questions.AccessibilityIdentify all portals (e.g., LMS, company intranet, knowledge management repository, etc.) through which learners will access the elearning.Ensure all learner populations have access to all applicable portals. Send out a survey if needed.Identify any and all plug-ins that will be required.Check with the client's IT department to identify whether the plug-in is part of the standard PC build. If the plug-in is not part of the standard build, ensure that the learner populations can download and install the plug-in successfully.Check with your client to determine whether the elearning needs to be compliant with Section 508. Remember that designing to Section 508 is just good elearning design.Determine whether there will be any foreign language requirements. Depending on the scope of translation, you may need to build in additional time to the project schedule.Marge Feely, President(847) 279-1169 | (312) 375-6741 (mobile)margefeely@att.net-209550-514350
