A successful e-Learning project stands on multiple pillars and involves many aspects that ensure success. With a variety of stakeholders, like instructional designers, subject matter experts, project managers, end learners etc., collaboration and review are essential to ensure a successful project.
Reviewing a course is essential to ensure quality and that goals are being met. Here are some of the things to remember when reviewing eLearning courses.
As a manager working on eLearning courses, it is important to balance project management skills with technical expertise. Dealing with various moving parts in the project -Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), Instructional Designers, quality assurance reviewers, clients, deadlines, project goals etc.- means that the team’s process and vision needs to be well defined and in sync.
When done right feedback helps improve products, propels processes forward and helps spread, as well as improve ideas.
When it’s not done right, however, bad feedback can cause confusion, lead to delays, create frustrations, drain energy from the team.
Whether from your customers, team mates or external experts, feedback is a key component in development and design process.
