eLearning development

What is elearning development?

eLearning design and development can be a cost effective and engaging way to provide your audience with the information and skills they need. However, in order for elearning to be effective, it must be carefully planned. We can help you create a curriculum that links elearning activities to elearning objectives, or advise you on how to effectively plan elearning that is already part of your curriculum. By using the ADDIE model, we can develop business elearning targets that provide a focus for your elearning planning. This ensures that your elearning is designed and developed in a way that is most likely to achieve its objectives and engage your audience.

eLearning development process

elearning development feedback loop

elearning space has chosen the Analyse, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate (ADDIE) model for elearning development because it is an effective and efficient way to create cost-effective and engaging elearning content. The ADDIE model is a systematic approach to elearning design that helps to ensure that all elearning objectives are met. It begins with an analysis of the needs of the learner and the learning environment, followed by the design of the elearning content. Once the content is developed, it is implemented in the elearning environment, and finally evaluated to ensure that it is effective. By following the ADDIE model, elearning space can be confident that the elearning content will meet the needs of learners.

Design for eLearning Development

  1. Determine the objectives of an elearning course.
  2. Measure how these objectives are achieved. 
  3. Set a time limit for which these learning objectives must be completed.
  4. Record how these objectives are met.
  5. Utilise client resources ensures that you won’t have to 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. We will make sure that the elearning development meets your business needs and that the elearning development is designed with the user in mind. We will provide feedback on everything from navigation to content length. We will support you to test 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 important. It is the feedback loop that 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, this with either strengthen the already existing elearning development or appropriate changes will be made. This flexibility allows for a more cost effective and engaging elearning product that meets the specific needs of the client. While the elearning design and development process can be time consuming, it is worth the investment to create a high quality elearning product.
