Many have come to elearning when adapting to circumstances that have evolved with their job roles or the developing needs of their business. Others require elearning to reinforce the training they are currently providing to remote workers through video communications, as face-to-face training in person may not currently be a safe option for them. Or, others may need to monetise their knowledge and want to know how to do this quickly and easily.
As relocating learning online becomes even more essential for individuals and companies alike, convenience, flexibility, and versatility are required. But with an ever-increasing choice of authoring tools available, those new to elearning can find starting out a bit of a challenge. The majority of 'first-time' elearning designers need to pick up course creation skills at speed and aren't sure where to begin.... but making excellent elearning for the first time is much easier than you might think.
