    14. 14. <ul><li>What worked: </li></ul><ul><li>Setting a realistic project plan </li></ul><ul><li>Ordering tasks according to the needs of the product </li></ul><ul><li>Producing in house (retaining control) </li></ul><ul><li>Outsourcing only where necessary (e.g. we outsource video shoots and some Flash development) </li></ul>eLearning development – our experiences
    15. 15. <ul><li>What worked: </li></ul><ul><li>Sourcing appropriate software </li></ul><ul><li>Holding ‘creative meetings’ to break down the syllabus: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To convert manuscript into a slide by slide interactive presentation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To develop different ways of presenting each subject </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To include the learner in the process </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To ensure that writers and developers work towards the same goals </li></ul></ul>eLearning development – our experiences
    16. 16. <ul><li>What worked: </li></ul><ul><li>Using PowerPoint to its full capabilities, along with additional eLearning authoring software (Articulate) </li></ul><ul><li>Using various forms of media (images/video/animations/narration) </li></ul><ul><li>Setting up technical proofing points throughout the development phase </li></ul><ul><li>Launching pilot courses before a full ‘go live’ to capture any end user issues </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>eLearning development – our experiences
    17. 17. <ul><li>What didn’t work: </li></ul><ul><li>Initially, not having a clear understanding of best practice of how to develop an eLearning product </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Because of this, having to revise project plans which resulted in delays in getting the product to market </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Initially, not using the best software for our particular requirements </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>eLearning development – our experiences
    18. 18. <ul><li>What didn’t work: </li></ul><ul><li>Outsourcing creative work resulting in amendments and delays </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of understanding between the writer and the developers (creative meetings now overcome this) </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>eLearning – our experiences
    19. 19. <ul><li>Difficulties faced: </li></ul><ul><li>How to create an exciting and immersive eLearning product without breaking the bank! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Flash animations are very expensive to develop, so we learnt how to create these animations/interactivities using only PowerPoint, (which keeps the need for Flash animations down to a minimum) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify and use the creative talent that exists in house (e.g. in house film shoots) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>eLearning – our experiences
    20. 20. Theory Assessment – How we assess <ul><li>Paper based Theory Papers, or </li></ul><ul><li>eAssessment </li></ul><ul><li>Benefits of eAssessment </li></ul><ul><li>Instant access to learners' results </li></ul><ul><li>Removes time and cost burden of printing and returning answer sheets </li></ul>
    21. 21. Practical Assessment – How we assess <ul><li>Direct observation of practical session via attendance at an assessment day </li></ul>
    22. 22. Issues and Questions <ul><li>CYQ is an accreditation organisation (not a training provider) so ideally we should not be carrying out the testing of the eLearning product on the target group of 20 people in the UK </li></ul><ul><li>If CYQ were to carry out the testing, we cannot enrol the successful participants on to REPs UK due to national qualification requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Can practical competences be tested via an eLearning platform? </li></ul><ul><li>Conflicts of interest? </li></ul>
    23. 23. Issues and Questions <ul><li>How will we ensure that EREPs recognise the pilot national registers? </li></ul><ul><li>How will we ensure that EHFA recognise the alignment of the eLearning product(s) to the EHFA Standards? </li></ul><ul><li>How will we align our work to EHFA’s plans for a revised accreditation policy? </li></ul>
