Building eLearning courses is getting easier. But how about building them within your limited budget? The good news is that it IS possible to create quality eLearning courses on a shoestring budget. It’s a matter of prioritizing your efforts, focusing the core learning objectives and deliverables, planning ahead, using toolkits, and reusing content. In this clinic, you will use a cloud-based authoring tool to build an eLearning module from scratch.
