How to find the right eLearning partner to develop your educational content?

Posted On Apr 13, 2022 |

Here are 7 simple tips to help you

1- Lack Of Creative Control

Develop a style guide and an online training storyboard so that they know what you expect. It may require more work on your end, but you get to retain more control of the aesthetics, themes, etc.

2- Going Over Budget

When you hire eLearning content development companies, you may run into hidden fees or unexpected charges. For example, it takes them longer to complete the corporate eLearning project, or they require additional resources. This is why it’s crucial to clarify your budget and get everything in writing. Set milestones and verify what’s included in the package.

3-Professional Conflicts

You must ensure that the eLearning vendor’s staff and yours can collaborate and communicate. They might not share the same interests, but they must be able to work together to achieve shared goals. Host a pre-project meeting so that everyone can introduce themselves and clarify their expectations and roles.

4-Revisions And Updates

eLearning companies should provide you with periodic updates and invite your eLearning feedback. Make certain this is all outlined in your agreement. Otherwise, you may have to wait until the very end to suggest improvements, which results in launch delays.

5-The Online Training Content Doesn’t Reflect Your Brand Image

The most effective way to prevent this problem is to host a brand orientation meeting with the eLearning vendor. Share what your brand is all about and give the custom eLearning content provider some online training material to work with. For instance, encourage them to visit your site, show samples of past online training resources, and provide marketing material. Even a peek of your landing page can help them form a complete picture of your brand image and messaging.

6-The eLearning Vendor Doesn’t Specialize In Your Industry

Ensure that the eLearning vendor has worked in your industry before or is willing to deal with the learning curve. They must be able to familiarize themselves with your industry’s guidelines and potential online training hurdles. To avoid this pitfall entirely, use an online directory to search for eLearning vendors with a proven track record.

7-Contractual Confusion

Firstly, ensure the contract maps out every aspect of the eLearning content development process, including price, time frames, and both parties’ obligations. Then discuss the main points with the eLearning vendor so that everyone knows their responsibilities and roles. Now is the time to clarify ambiguities and adjust the wording to prevent future conflicts. If you’re working with the same eLearning vendor on multiple corporate eLearning projects, re-evaluate the contract every time to make sure both sides still agree on the terms, especially if there’s a significant time gap between the tasks.
