So, you have decided to develop eLearning courses. We all know that developing eLearning courses cost a lot as we have to require eLearning Developers’ team, who has varying levels of technical expertise. Before creating any online courses, we have to come across some important questions.
As a professional eLearning consultant, I am advised to create eLearning sit by using templates that can easily addresses many of questions. There are many people, who don’t have an idea about eLearning templates, for those, here we have some explanation.
Many different assets can be included in templates, such as PowerPoint master slide layouts that come with different created pages that are best for adding content. Moreover, different tools are also available that used for developing template interfaces and GUIs for courses.
Different types of templates include icons, color schemes, buttons, images, quizzes, games, and more. Such things can be used again and again in various projects and can have many advantages like:
Save a lot of Time and Effort
It seems to be nice if one can have brilliant page layouts, buttons, icons, colors, interface, etc. of an online course. If you are adding template means you don’t have to use your mind in time re-creating the same pieces for each course.
It can be excellent for those people, who may don’t have a strong background in multimedia. For novice designer, it could save enough time in creating a flash movie or design an asset that expert one can do in some minutes. The best thing is designers can spend now time focusing on writing good material and less on how to create button more beautiful.
There are many organizations that are looking for consistent online courses. No matter, who the designer was, they always looking for same color, feel, quality and look. With templates, such desire can be achieved with an ease as designers are working by considering template’s base by using the same files.
One can also develop a template interface player that ensure learner about same navigation alternative on each course. Moreover, you can also standardize, when links bookmarking, outlines, jobaids and other related features. With this, learners become familiar with your course and thus, they don’t require to waste enough time towards searching any part.
With templates, one can easily create a file that works within guidelines and after that, they can share it with entire department. Moreover, it easily cut down on troubleshooting time that used for deciding why some portion is not working properly. Such efforts are already been done, just one have to require it to happen.
Increase Output and Creativity
Templates enable designers to spend more time on what they can do best, i.e. writing course content and so on. Even, one can spend more time on the core of course rather than on the "administrative" parts.
These has two situation, first, designers can spend more time on thinking to make eLearning course creativity and second, can able to create short course in shorter time.
