This month’s Big Question in Learning Circuits is, “What questions are you no longer asking? What are your new questions?”
I have been in the field of Human Performance Improvement for the last 25 years and in e-learning for the last 10. I have restricted my write-up only to e-learning custom courseware development, which is our core business at CommLab India.
QUESTIONS I NO LONGER ASK
In general, I have stopped asking all open-ended questions and some of those listed below:
- How did you like the training?
- Did you learn anything useful?
- Why doesn’t your course have performance-based learning objectives?
- What is your training budget?
- Do you want the online course SCORM/AICC compliant?
- Moodle what, did you say?
- Do you want reusable learning objects?
- Do you also want a CD-ROM version of the course?
- Are your learners computer literate and Internet savvy?
MY NEW QUESTIONS
- How fast do you want the e-learning course to be delivered? In three weeks?
- Do you want a 30-minute course or a 45-minute course?
- Do you want the course to be delivered to mobile phones?
- Which version of Moodle are you using? Moodle 1.9.10+?
- How many international languages do you want the course translated into?
- Which authoring tools do you prefer? Captivate, Articulate or Lectora?
- Do you want to use webinars for product training?
- Does US$ 5000 fit your budget for a 30-minute course?
- Is your LMS Web 2.0?
- Don’t know the answer? Why don’t you Google-search it?
