Enlivening eLearning

If you are looking to expand your reach or rejuvenate the training provided by your firm, it may be time to look beyond traditional eLearning tools and delivery methods. If you are tied to a commercially available authoring tool, there is a good chance your design is constrained by its limitations.

Off-the-shelf eLearning authoring tools are a little like modern Lego sets. Remember when you were a kid and Lego came in boxes containing building bricks which could be used however you wished? There might not have been the wide variety of brick shapes you can find today but you were still free to create and build constrained only by the limits of your imagination. Nowadays, when you are in the Lego aisle of the toy store, you are dazzled by a choice between dozens of kits. Lego has morphed from a design tool into a way to build prefabricated models. Kids follow directions instead of their imaginations.

Similarly, an off-the-shelf eLearning tool pretends that it can allow you to build whatever you want, but in reality your eLearning course will most likely follow one of the models designed by the tool''s developers. It is eLearning by rote: choose one module from column A, one from column B, and then call it a day. Instant eLearning. Certainly, there are many advantages and efficiencies gained by this approach. Training departments no longer need to retain teams of expensive designers and programmers. New courses can be developed quickly with a minimum of fuss and expense.

But if you are tired of this rote approach to eLearning, chances are your audience is too. Consider shaking things up a bit by using an outside provider such as SS&C  Learning Institute. Our team of talented designers, educators, and web developers will help enliven your training without breaking the bank.
