Here is a quick insight:
Benefits of Rapid eLearning
1. Quick Course Provisions
The process ensures you can develop and deliver courses rapidly.
2. Excellent for Updates
Updating pre-existing courses or content with the latest information and data becomes a seamless process.
3. Virtual Instructor-Led Training Conversion
Any classroom training module can quickly shift and adapt to the eLearning platform.
4. Perfect for any Course or Training
Effectively, data libraries’ availability makes it quite efficient to incorporate eLearning courses through rapid development.
The Quality Speed Trade-off: Is It Real?
If proper steps are followed, there isn’t any trade-off of quality for speed. An effective rapid course development strategy would prove to be highly remarkable. All it comes down to, is the proper management and initiation.
Tips to Ensure High-Quality in Rapid eLearning Courses
1. Incorporation of Pre-Approved Templates
The process of a course creation would significantly rely upon pre-approved templates. Access to the database and libraries with these templates becomes indispensable. Standard screens and elements with proper layout for interactivity are conveniently available.
All it would require is customization and modifications according to the eLearning platform and the course requirement. It significantly reduces the cost and time investment for the development of the course.
2. Recycling the Existing Content
Rapid eLearning development primarily relies on pre-existing content, similar to the templates. With some tweaks and modifications, it can adapt to the current course. Various guides, presentations, informative content, videos, and images might undergo recycling with proper adjustments to settle according to the course.
Although the available libraries and pre-existing courses can be the inspiration, there is an alternative. By hiring a rapid content creation team, the quality will remain intact.
3. Utilizing Rapid Authoring Tools
The above two steps are primarily achievable through the utilization of a rapid authoring tool. These tools enable rapid development of courses with conversion (or engagement) as the primary objective. A rapid authoring tool will provide various features and multimedia content for quick development.
Finding appropriate rapid authoring tools should take priority for qualitative Rapid eLearning development. It will ease up the rebuilding, redesigning, customization, modification, and integrations of the new module proficiently.
4. Agile Project Management
It is a three-step process and a sure-fire methodology for rapid development:
- Set expectations with the stakeholders and communicate them to the developer team.
- The client receives a quick prototype (dummy) module for quick feedback to ensure accurate development.
- Course development initiates with proper content, audio and visual while undergoing real-time feedback to ensure proper development before the final product clarification.
