Organisations often try to incorporate as many courses as possible into their learning management system, creating an impressive digital content library through a ‘more is better’ approach. This can be overwhelming, and potentially unmotivating for employees, especially if many of the courses presented to them are not relevant. Additionally, if courses offered are not produced and presented in a way that is suitable and engaging to its specific audience, results will suffer.
To offer people the most relevant e-learning content, a proper training needs analysis should be done. The results of this can then be used to develop a course curriculum which matches. The production methodologies and elements used in creating the e-learning courses should also be carefully selected to provide the most effective knowledge delivery to the specific audience.
How FUEL can help
FUEL provides in-depth consultation to our clients, working with them to assess the type of training they require and the best way to deliver it, specific to needs and budget. More than two decades’ experience creating e-learning academies in a variety of industries, allows us to quickly identify the best solution for your business.
In terms of content, FUEL can assist with curricula development to ensure your staff receive a training experience in line with your training goals. Once established that the learning experience meets your goals, the production of your training content can begin.
We can script, edit and produce e-learning content from scratch, working with external subject matter experts or your own people, or work from existing training content you already use and digitise it accordingly. This material might be in the form of training manuals, slide decks or standard operating procedure documents.
Several content production methodologies are available for us to use, some in combination, depending on budget and the desired application: Presenter to Camera; Video Cutaways; Animation; Digital Booklets; Still Images; 3D Simulators and Virtual Reality.
Presenter to camera with video cutaways are generally considered the most effective combination of production methods. This provides a dynamic learning experience, with video footage shot on location and presenter footage shot in studio are shown on screen interchangeably. It is also a relatively expensive option.
We can also make all digital content SCORM-compliant and have it translated into any language your audience requires.
Production times vary, however a series of four course modules use presenter to camera and video cutaways should take between six and eight weeks. This includes treatment, scripting, development of assessment tools, location shoot, studio shoot, editing & animation, as well as testing.
In addition to bespoke content creation, FUEL has its own generic course library available to purchase. All of our off-the-shelf courses are SCORM-compliant and compatible with any LMS.
