Our Approach to eLearning
Online or elearning is appealing to many organisations due to its reach, low resource requirements and flexibility in both time and place. Whilst the cost of producing eLearning programs may be more expensive that traditional classroom-based training, the delivery costs are often significantly lower. The cost of development can vary greatly, depending on the level of interactivity, complexity and customisation.
We use a variety of authoring tools to ensure our eLearning solutions meet our client’s needs.
The approach we take to eLearning depends on time, budget and the impact of the proposed program. For ease, we have three levels we use as a starting point.
Level 1: Rapid Development
When applying the Rapid Development Model, we use a rapid authoring tool to quickly and economically convert content, typically PPT to eLearning. If you require a basic program for low impact projects (e.g. to inform staff of a small change), but require the ability to track participant completion, this level may be suitable for your needs. We can transfer existing PPT content and materials to eLearning, making it an efficient and economical solution. As this is the most basic of the three levels, interactive elements are limited.
Organisations have used this model to ensure employees have read and understood basic workplace policies, procedures and documents, such as:
- Safety notices/memos
- Site inductions
- Legislative changes
- Product update
Indicative price: from $1,000 for a 30 minute course
Level 2: Adaptive
Our most popular level of eLearning, the Adaptive level, is used to produce attractive and engaging online learning solutions that incorporate multimedia and interactive elements to enrich the learner’s experience. At this level the courses adapt to any device in a similar way to a modern website. We recommend this solution for moderate impact learnings needs or for those who desire to achieve a sleek modern user friendly course.
We have developed programs for clients for a variety of subjects such as:
- Customer Service
- Communication and Emotional Intelligence
- Equal Employment Opportunity, Anti-Bullying, Harassment and Discrimination
- Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Workplace Health and Safety (WHS)
- Workplace Privacy
Indicative price: From $4,000 for a 30 minute course
Level 3: Bespoke
For higher impact projects where budget and time allows, this solution builds on the Adaptive level by incorporating bespoke elements such as gamification, branching scenarios, infographics and customised videos. These features engage participants and can deepen their understanding by making strong, contextualised connections to the real world, enriching learning.
We develop customised videos to deliver or contextualise content visually.
We create interactive software simulations to demonstrate key functions and operations. Interactivity capability allows users to practice the tasks, to ensure they have the understanding and skills to implement their learning in the workplace. View our Interactive Software Simulation Showcase here.
Customised infographics help learners understand complex concepts using visual elements.
For high impact projects, we suggest a blended solution that incorporates a variety of learning experiences. These do not necessarily need to be face-to-face facilitator-led workshops. Activities can be embedded throughout the program that require participants to research, investigate, work with a mentor/buddy, apply their learning in the workplace or complete a project, then report back to their online trainer. These strategies enhance the transfer of learning to the workplace, whilst maintaining the convenience of delivering the content no matter the time or place.
Indicative price: From $8,000 for a 30 minute course.
*Costs can vary quite substantially based on:
- the availability and quality of source material
- number and quality of interactive elements
- number and quality of videos, graphics and other multimedia
- number of edits
