e-Learning Training


As DIY authoring has become more popular and more tools have become available to support in-house development of e-learning courses we have seen a significant rise in demand for training that helps new authors develop effective e-learning.

Currently we offer the following courses:

Online Learning for L&D Professionals

This new course introduces the key components of online learning and is designed for learning and development professionals in strategic positions who wish to add online learning approaches to their organisation’s learning mix.

Instructional Design for e-Learning

This course develops skills in instructional design for e-learning. The basic course lasts one day and covers the development of a basic storyboard suitable for either building using a DIY tool such as Articulate or for briefing an external development company. This course is ideally run in confunction with a 1 day suthoring course (see below) – we develop the storyboard on Day 1 then build the course using the selected tool on Day 2.

Delivery: This course is currently provided as a 1 day workshop but an online version will be available in Winter 2012.

Coming Soon
We are also designing a 2 day intermediate course which will launch in Winter 2012 as a blended programme.

We also run training courses on specific authoring tools. Current tools covered include:

  • Articulate ¬†Studio

We can also develop courses based around your own authoring environment Рnormally in conjunction with an instruction design course (see above).

Who are these courses aimed at?

These courses are aimed primarily at trainers and provide the key skills needed to develop online learning. Good learning design online is actually quite similar to good learning design in the classroom and we try to explore how effective classroom techniques can be transferred to online courses.

“The Articulate course was excellent. Understanding how to develop an effective storyboard really improved our capability to develop quality e-learning courses in-house.”
