Our primary goal as Learning and Development professionals is to create engaging eLearning courses that provide learners with meaningful learning experiences. To design and develop these courses, we rely on instructional designers to employ effective strategies, and experts to work their magic with authoring tools. We also look to the project managers to ensure that everything works seamlessly. What if you don’t have these resources in-house, lack the know-how to develop eLearning courses, or your in-house team is overworked? In such cases, outsourcing eLearning may be a viable option.
