We love spring. It gives you an opportunity to dust off your goals and start afresh. Temperatures are (almost) into double digits and signs of green are literally springing up everywhere, but have you fully embraced the new season and spring cleaned your eLearning?
Unfortunately for many of us, daily demands and distractions defer us from staying on track and laying those best laid plans of revisiting our goals.
Often eLearning courses and training materials only get updated when new software is released or when new budget becomes available! So to help inject a little spring into your learning and development, we’ve highlighted a few things to help refresh your training plans.
If you’ve multiple courses, resources and programmes all on the go, it can be hard to know where to start.
But if you don’t take a step back and review your current eLearning offering, you won’t be able to tell the wood from the trees and you’ll easily fall into the trap of doing more of the same.
Once you reviewed your current inventory, resources and assets, start compiling your next stage – preparing for what needs to get done.
After reviewing a programme, you may find that it is in need of a restructure or there are elements that you’d still like to keep, but you are unsure if it still educationally effective. Know when to delegate!
If you have the time, resources and skills in-house to treat your programmes with sound instructional design – fantastic!
If however, like many, you run the risk of overwhelming yourself with this task, knowing when to outsource and delegate certain areas or tasks can be hugely beneficial, allowing you to concentrate on the task at hand.
Having buy-in and engagement for eLearning in your organisation is key to its success. Inform and involve your managers and team leaders about your eLearning.
Don’t forget to sell the benefits of the training and of eLearning as this will help you get buy-in and support. Similarly, don’t forget to report on the success of your new revitalised eLearning programme!
Whether you want to update an existing course, create a new programme, transfer classroom training materials online or looking to develop new skills to design and deliver eLearning in-house, we can infuse a little spring into your learning and development. Get in touch with us today.
