Course overview

What you will learn

In particular you will be able to:

  • Evaluate your ideas in the context of eLearning’s history and past challenges – capitalising on your knowledge of what we know does and does not work.
  • Think more laterally about the learner journey and where learning interventions can take place.
  • Develop ‘guerrilla’ learning experiences that save budget and meet learner needs just-in-time.
  • Describe the standard eLearning development cycle from start to finish and have a good idea of the project management required through each key stage.
  • Find your way around a large eLearning project in an authoring tool, to be able to make simple text edits, understand the publishing and output options.
  • Write a brief for external developers and effectively appraise their responses.
  • Understand the level of commitment for internal staff, costs and timescales involved when commissioning work from external providers.

The Small Print

For Face-to-Face Live Online Learning

All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

You should reserve out 10am to 4.30pm in your diary for the learning. This will allow you to join the interactive workshops and have time to reflect and do the assignments in between. We believe immersing yourself in the content for a whole day will create deep learning and lasting impact. 

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.

The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.
