One of hardest things to do is to start something. Not just in your learning or elearning but in general – you feel like you don’t know anything and it’s easy to feel a bit out of your depth straight away. eLearning is great for that. You hear about these experts condemning the elearning that others have done or that the system is not interactive enough or there’s too much ‘click next’ type activity. The problem is often that you haven’t even got that far… there’s no existing ‘e’ anything, there’s no learning management system (or LMS) and the closest thing to tracking you have is that old Excel spreadsheet which as fallen woefully out of date.
Probably a good time to give us a buzz. We’re based in Tauranga in the beautiful Bay of Plenty but don’t let that put you off if you’re further afield – this is a distance based solution after all and we like to practise what we preach. We can help sort you out with the right LMS for your needs (or determine if you need one at all) – we’re independent so not tied to one LMS or another or show you how go get the most out of the one you’re using. We can produce your elearning or even show you how to produce your own with the minimal of fuss; we can ensure you get the settings right to track and plug your learning into your systems in line with your learning strategies (heck.. we can help with those too!).
eLearning is a minefield and an expensive one too if you don’t know what to expect. One of the other services we can provide is consultancy to help you better interact with some of the big companies out there – elearning can certainly be a daunting area but the rewards and efficiencies are massive if done right… sometimes it just helps to have the right kind of guide.
