It has been said that every eLearning professional should have multiple tools in his or her eLearning toolkit. But having them and using them effectively are two very different things. Learning how to make the most effective use of the tools you have can make your eLearning design and development process much smoother.
This was the subject of a webinar that I presented this past week for Training Magazine. In the webinar, we discussed how a little bit of preparation in advance can make your eLearning tool much more efficient and effective. The four main areas we covered were:
- Style Guides—Designing and Using a Style Guide
- Assets & Resources—Gathering the assets and resources needed for your project
(Audio, Video, Images, Backgrounds, etc.)
- Purposeful Design—Putting thought and purpose into each element of your design
- Storyboard—Putting together a rudimentary mock-up of your course design
