Topic:  Building eLearning courses are getting easier. Nevertheless, building them on a budget can be a challenge. There is no time or money, and the expectation is 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 is a matter of prioritizing your efforts, focusing the core learning objectives and deliverables, planning, using toolkits and reusing content.

In this workshop, Debbie will provide a process for delivering quality eLearning courses on a shoe-string budget. You will get practical tips for building engaging, interactive eLearning courses on a budget.

Participants 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 until you see the cool examples and participate in a number of hands-on activities!
