In the five years that I’ve been the eLearning director for a custom eLearning development company, I’ve spoken to hundreds of people looking to develop eLearning, and made hundreds of presentations demonstrating our capabilities as an eLearning provider. Each person I’ve spoken with approached eLearning from a unique perspective. Some people are brand-new to eLearning having never developed a course; some have extensive experience at developing courses; some have had good eLearning development experiences and some have had bad development experiences. The information that follows summarizes some of the key questions or issues that need to be addressed for a successful eLearning development project.
