Program Description:

Building eLearning courses is getting easier. But building them on a budget can be a challenge. There's no time or money and you're expected to do everything from instructional design to graphic design. 

The good news is that it IS possible to create quality eLearning courses on a shoe-string budget. It’s a matter of prioritizing your efforts, focusing the core learning objectives and deliverables, planning ahead, using toolkits, and reusing content. 

In this workshop, Debbie will provide a process for delivering quality eLearning courses on a shoe-string budget. 

You'll get practical tips for building engaging, interactive eLearning courses on a budget.

In this 1/2 day workshop you will learn how to:

  • Get more from your existing resources
  • Create a look that complements course content
  • Apply instructional design models to author better courses--faster
This workshop is appropriate for both beginners and professionals with experience in rapid eLearning. 

Just wait till you see the cool examples and participate in a number of hands-on activities!

This is a hands-on workshop.
Participants will need a computer with Microsoft PowerPoint loaded.
