What are the typical stages of the custom eLearning development process?
Here are the most common stages of the eLearning development process:
Planning and analysis At this stage, the stakeholders determine the format of the course, learning objectives, project goals, scope, etc.
Content gathering The project team collects, sorts, synthesizes, and organizes the course content. Content will likely come from several sources, including internal documents, online research, and subject matter experts (SMEs).
Template development Templates typically consist of blank placeholders that mark the important elements of your course, such as the course welcome, objectives, and assessments. The design team may also develop several layouts for your templates.
Storyboarding Storyboarding is the point where your design team decides what goes where and in what order it should go, using the content they’ve collected and the templates they’ve developed.
Multimedia assets production The designers work on producing various assets that will be used in the course, such as voice over recordings, videos, animations, illustrations, etc.
Course development The eLearning developers build the course using one or multiple custom eLearning development software tools and/or programming interfaces.
Testing The learning product is thoroughly tested by the internal testing team to ensure that there are no bugs, errors, omissions, and oversights before the course is delivered to the learners.
Edits and revisions The project team collects feedback and suggestions from the stakeholders and passes this feedback to course developers in order to make edits and incorporate any changes into the course before it is finalized.
Implementation After the learning is rolled out, the learning outcomes are recorded and monitored to determine whether the course meets the learning objectives. This stage concludes the eLearning development process.
