What is elearning development?

eLearning design and development can be a cost effective and engaging way to provide your audience with the necessary information and skills. When you carefully plan elearning, it becomes very effective. Fortunately, our team of experts at elearning space has extensive experience creating training programs that link elearning activities to objectives. Using the Analyse, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate (ADDIE) model, we can develop precise business elearning targets that guide your planning. This approach ensures that your elearning achieves its goals and engages your audience effectively.

eLearning is an excellent way to deliver cost effective and engaging employee training. However, it is essential to ensure that the elearning design meets the needs of the organisation and the learners. Our elearning development process is straightforward and begins with asking 8 simple elearning questions. These answers help us determine your elearning needs, and we then provide an obligation free quote.

eLearning development process

elearning space has chosen the ADDIE model for elearning development because it is an effective and efficient way to create cost effective and engaging elearning content. This model is a systematic approach to elearning design that helps ensure all elearning objectives are met. Starting with analysing the learner’s needs and the elearning environment, the process continues with the design of the elearning content. Next, the content must be added to the elearning environment and evaluated to ensure effectiveness. Following this approach, you can be confident that your elearning content will meet the needs of learners.

Analyse for eLearning Development

eLearning design and elearning development can be cost-effective and meet your organisation’s needs with engaging solutions. We will ask 8 simple questions to help us understand your elearning requirements. The answers will be analysed to determine the scope of the work to be completed. Based on this analysis, a proposal and associated quote will outline the next step forward. eLearning is an effective way to deliver training and education and can be customised to meet your organisation’s specific needs.

Design for eLearning Development

  1. Determine the objectives of an elearning course.
  2. Measure how these objectives will be achieved. 
  3. Set a time limit for which these learning objectives must be completed.
  4. Record how these objectives will be met.
  5. Utilising client resources ensures you won’t waste time or money on unnecessary elements.

Evaluate for eLearning

We will evaluate your elearning development and provide professional UX/UI advice to ensure the best user experience. This is so your elearning development meets your business needs and that the elearning development is designed with the user in mind. Next we can provide feedback on the elearning experience. We will support you in testing the elearning development on your chosen LMS or equivalent.

Feedback for eLearning

A continuous feedback loop for every step of the elearning development cycle is essential. The feedback loop adds a third dimension to the ADDIE framework. An elearning development process needs to be flexible to adapt to ongoing feedback from the client. As feedback is received, it will either strengthen the already existing elearning development or make appropriate changes. This flexibility allows for a more cost effective and engaging elearning product that meets the client’s specific needs. While the elearning design and development process can be time-consuming, it is worth the investment to create a high-quality elearning product.
