Master E-Learning Design on Your Own

The clock is ticking. The new online training is due next week. You need to tweak a few activity questions, make sure changes to the audio voice-over flow smoothly, and get the subject matter expert to sign off on the final storyboard. To cap it all off, you’re on your own. You’re an e-learning department of one.

As more companies explore the e-learning space for training and development, they often task lone individuals to bear the load. You might be an instructional designer asked to start with e-learning, or an experienced marketer developing a sales support e-learning module, or a classroom trainer taking your content online. E-Learning Department of One can be your lifeline.

Learning experience designer Emily Wood knows a thing or two about being an e-learning department of one. In this book, she shares shortcuts to create quality products when faced with limited resources, help, and time. Design and development hacks include how to:

• Manage complex content with a storyboard.
• Decide which authoring tool fits your budget.
• Gather and organize feedback data from pilot tests.
• Ensure your product meets accessibility requirements.

While you might feel like you’re stranded on a deserted island, struggling to manage dozens of training requests, remember you’re not alone. Welcome to the e-learning community.

The new position brings with it myriad potential land mines. The end result is often e-learning that is not well received, has cost too much, and has taken too long to develop.
