Gomo, the cloud-based eLearning authoring, delivery and analytics platform, has released a new ebook featuring contributions from six of its learning experts. Starting at the very beginning of an organization’s experience of eLearning authoring—selecting the right authoring tool—the ebook covers everything L&D professionals need to know to get the most out of a new or existing authoring tool.
The ebook is intended to help newcomers creating digital learning content as well as veteran content creators, with solutions for common issues that the team has repeatedly encountered in their time in the eLearning industry.
“These are the kind of topics we all revisit again and again. Even if you've been happily using your current authoring tool for years, it never hurts to consider things from a newcomer’s perspective. You could consider: are new employees being onboarded correctly? Are you helping them understand why tools were selected in the first place? Then, there’s always something new to learn about creating content and getting the most out of it,” said Gomo’s Managing Director, Gavin Beddow.
The six chapters of the ebook cover defining your eLearning authoring needs, working to your budget, how to successfully introduce a new authoring tool, do’s and don’ts of content creation, best practices for content review and testing, and measuring and tracking digital learning programs.
By reading the complete ebook, you will discover how:
Having a vision for where you want to take your L&D team is just as important as knowing their current skillset when choosing an eLearning authoring tool
Starting with a small budget can actually be an advantage
Training for new software tools is frequently undermined by a lack of time to practically apply learning
Learners primarily want content that doesn’t waste their time, and leaves no doubts about how it is relevant to them
You should start testing as soon as you build your first substantial prototype
xAPI doesn’t just mean deeper tracking – it opens up hosting possibilities that can help you deal with bandwidth and geographical hosting issues
