Our community of educators and learners come together for a common interest in empowering the society with Industry 4.0 relevant eLearning contents
When we approach carefully and scientifically in our ILT to eLearning conversion approach for training material such as PowerPoint decks, facilitator guides and participant handouts, we can produce engaging e-Learning curriculums aided with sound
When converting your ILT material into an eLearning curriculum, you must ensure to include these:
The content of a classroom training session will be spread over many sources; PowerPoint decks, facilitator guides and participant handouts. We need to map the existing content from all sources against the learning objectives
Frequently, facilitators use PowerPoint decks to structure their session and as a memory aid. PowerPoint decks usually do not have detailed narration in their notes pane but mostly just bullet points on slide and scant explanatory notes.
Within an instructor-led training session, the instructor is the main force in helping learners learn. He/She combines their expertise of the subject and communication skills to teach the subject. When incorporating the latest instructional design principles and practices, you must ensure that eLearning is presented in such a manner that the learner will not miss the instructor.
Interactions with learners
A good trainer keeps his/her audience engaged with constant interaction and engagement. This interaction will miss the ILT materials.
Our instructional designers and authoring tool experts incorporate a number of interactivities to make the eLearning engaging and interesting.
Questions to check understanding
An effective facilitator ensures her learners follow his/her and regularly checks their understanding by asking questions. Again, something that is missing in ILT material.
Make sure that the course has adequate formative assessments to reinforce learning and also a final summative assessment to measure learning at the end.
How Do You Convert ILT to eLearning ?
To convert any ILT material into an effective eLearning course, we need to follow scientific, proven system. The following ILT to eLearning conversion process is one we had developed and refined through trial and errors, now we are proud to say that every outcome from this guarantees excellent quality and time saving.
Time-tested Process for Converting ILT Material into eLearning
Analyze the Learners
To get a better understanding of the learners, especially if the audience for eLearning is different from that of classroom training. To ascertain how much the learners already know about the subject
STudy the learning environment
To find out where the learning takes place, either at the workplace, home or hotel or while on the move. This would help us determine the digital formats (e.g. microlearning) that can be used
REvisit the learning objectives
To finalise the performance-based learning objectives and incorporate change, if any. This would help us with defining the content, instructional strategy, duration and cost of conversion
Analyze the Content
To analyze the content; PowerPoint decks, facilitators guides and participants handouts, etc. This is to understand the topic in detail as well as to decide on an appropriate instructional approach.
Identify & fill content gaps
By mapping the ILT content to the learning objectives, we can identify content gaps in the existing content sources. We would then try to collect the missing elements and arrive at the final content.
devise an appropriate instructional strategy
Based on the learners and content, we need to come up with an appropriate instructional strategy to ensure the learning objectives are met. This also covers the visual strategy and design of the eLearning course.
Balance content vs audio
We need to ensure that the audio narration is not verbatim and complements the on-screen text.
Decide on level of interactivity
To ensure that the eLearning course has an appropriate level of engagement , we need to decide the level of interactivity.
incorporate formative assessment
We need to incorporate multiple formative assessments per module, placing an assessment at the completion of each enabling learning objective with immediate feedback.
provide summary and summative assessment
At the end of each module, we need to present the learner with a comprehensive summary and summative assessment to measure learning.
