Whether your organization is considering a new eLearning program or revamping an existing learning program, working with an eLearning consulting firm can help you to build the plan you will need to be successful. eLearning consultants typically combine design thinking with program goals and an understanding of the audience profile to create a strategy that puts learner needs and organizational context above everything else to determine the best way to achieve your desired results.
The Benefits of eLearning Consulting Firms
Most corporations now report that eLearning is among the most valuable training methods that they employ. This is not surprising as eLearning can save business 50% (or more) when compared to traditional, classroom-based training. In addition, eLearning decreases instruction time by up to 60%.
Still, planning and implementing an eLearning program can be a daunting task if your team has never taken it on or (perhaps worse) if they have tried and failed in the past. This has given rise in the popularity of working with eLearning consulting firm.
Some of the areas in which an eLearning consultant can assist include:
Scoping the Project and Determining Requirements
Most consultants will begin their engagement with your company by gaining an understanding of your project requirements. As part of this first step, they will often:
Review any existing learning content
Develop the learning objectives
Identify course classifications, associated descriptions and requirements
Develop an assessment strategy
Determine the best method of delivery
Designing and Developing the Program
The eLearning consultant many then provides services to convert your existing manuals, PowerPoints, videos, and other potential training materials into innovative eLearning content. These services seek to ensure the re-purposed materials accomplish the instructional intent in support of the goals of the program.
Effectiveness Analysis and Assessment
An important step in the process is in measuring the effectiveness of your eLearning program regarding the Return on Investment (ROI) to your organization and the changes in employee behavior that is has accomplished.
Some of the measurements may include:
Decreased travel expenses
Lower overall training expenses
Increasing company profitability
Improved customer satisfaction
