Rapid eLearning Development

  1. 1. What is Rapid eLearning Development?
  2. 2. Rapid eLearning development refers to the creation of eLearning courses using rapid authoring tools that help to transform content into instructionally sound learning material within a short duration
  3. 3. Benefits of Rapid eLearning Development with Reference to Instructional Design
  4. 4. Develop eLearning within a short period of time
  5. 5. No programming knowledge or mastery of complex tools required
  6. 6. Gives you a jumpstart with readymade interface and navigation elements
  7. 7. Enables easy update ofcontent when required
  8. 8. Instructional Design Strategies for Rapid eLearning Development
  9. 9. Create templates with basic elements so that they can be re-used for subsequent courses
  10. 10. Templates can be created for• Project Plan• Storyboard• Page Layout
  11. 11. 1. Project plan template: A project plan template includes details of the project process, deliverables, team responsibilities and important timelines
  12. 12. 2. Storyboard template: You can use either MS word or PowerPoint to create storyboard templates. It should typically contain screen data such as the unit name with number, screen title with number and the type of the screen
  13. 13. 3. Page layout template: It provides an easy reference point which can be customized and developed for each course. This significantly reduces the development time
  14. 14. Have a basic course structure
  15. 15. Choose an authoring tool based on content
  16. 16. Best Practices in Design for Rapid eLearning Development
  17. 17. Develop a skeletal version of design
  18. 18. Let the learning objectives decide the tool
  19. 19. Design multiple templates
  20. 20. Create learning activities and not instruction
  21. 21. Design can depend on deployment or implementation
  22. 22. Checklist for Rapid eLearning Development – 7 C’s
  23. 23. Course objectives: Beforedesigning the course, you need to determine the course objectives
  24. 24. Content of the course: Once you know the course objective , you need to collate and analyze the course content
  25. 25. Characteristics of learners: At the same time you also need to understand learner’s profile
  26. 26. Context of learning: Context in which the learning has been initiated is another important factor to be considered by an eLearning development expert
  27. 27. Create the course: Choose an authoring tool that is best for the content and context
  28. 28. Check to see if it meets learning objective: Seekfeedback about the course from key stakeholders to ensure it meets the purpose
  29. 29. Circulate: Once the course receives final approval, it can be sent for deployment either by hosting on the LMS or through the company’s portals
  30. 30. Review the 7 C’s• Course objectives• Content of the course• Characteristics of learners• Context of learning• Create the course• Check to see if it meets learning objectives• Circulate
  31. 31. Conclusion
  32. 32. Rapid authoring tools make development ofcourses easy without the dependence on technical competence of programmers
