Sometimes you don’t have the budget and time to go for full-cycle e-learning development. But you don’t want to compromise on certain key design and development criteria either.
With our multi-functional teams, iterative processes, and quick turnarounds, we can design learning that doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket, but is still effective and engaging.
Rapid e-learning is characterized by short development cycles, concurrent design and development, and pre-built graphics and templates. However, there are a few myths that are normally associated with rapid e-learning, which can very well turn into reality if care is not taken to address them. Here they are, along with a brief explanation of what we do to overcome them:
|Potential Shortcomings||How We Overcome Them|
|Rapid e-learning is not engaging or effective||Instructional designers lead the project, supported by graphic designers and programmers. The entire team is completely at home with the tool in which the course is being developed. With IDs taking care of the primary development of the course, your learning goals are in safe hands, ensuring that instructional integrity is not compromised, while circumventing the long and detailed processes involved in custom development.|
|It is not aesthetically appealing||Though we don’t invest as much graphic designer time as we would for custom e-learning, we ensure there are no compromises on the aesthetic appeal of the courses developed by using pre-built templates and graphics.|
|Rapid e-learning is not interactive||One of the key considerations in rapid e-learning is cost, which takes away the time that a developer would normally spend creating custom interactions for a course. In a rapid development scenario, we substitute dedicated developer time with templates, which are re-used several times within a course. The result is a highly interactive course, at a fraction of the cost of custom e-learning.|
