What is an eLearning Developer?
Online courses are created by an eLearning Developer using authoring tools. These might be Articulate 360, iSpring Suite, Adobe Captivate, and iSpring Page (Rise 360 or Storyline 360).
eLearning developers are frequently provided a storyboard prepared by an instructional designer or eLearning designer in Adelaide. A storyboard serves as the “blueprint” for the programme, detailing the structure, pace, content delivery, and subject matter to be covered. Following that, eLearning developers turn the storyboard into actual eLearning by using an authoring program like Adobe Captivate, iSpring Page, iSpring Suite, or Articulate 360. (Rise 360 or Storyline 360). They are in charge of ensuring the course is effectively delivered, interactive, and visually appealing.
Although it is not required, many eLearning Developers do have qualifications. Hence, Australian eLearning developers have additional training in graphic design, photoshop, and the development of accessible eLearning courses that follow the WCAG 2.0 requirements for web content accessibility.
What is the difference between an Instructional Designer and an eLearning Developer?
Compared to the duties of an eLearning course developer, those of an instructional designer are far more varied. They use an instructional designer strategy, such as the ADDIE model of instructional design, to identify learning needs and offer a learning solution. Instructional designers choose the learning objectives, delivery methods, schedule, learning techniques, activities, and pre- and post-learning experiences. Instructional designers create the programmes that promote the knowledge, skills, and behaviours required to generate the desired learning outcome.
Thanks to eLearning developers, the storyboard comes to life! They incorporate the training and information into the eLearning using the proper authoring tool. The eLearning Developer develops the online learning programme. Together, the eLearning Developer and Instructional Designers adjust the functionality in response to client feedback, with the Instructional Designer handling adjustments to the educational material or Instructional Design Courses.
How long does it take to produce 1 hour of eLearning?
The amount of content that needs to be developed, the complexity of the interactivity, your expertise, and your knowledge with eLearning authoring tools are all key factors to take into account when estimating the length of time it will take to develop an eLearning solution.
The complexity of the software affects how long it takes to create e-learning content; in general, the more complex the programme, the longer it takes to create. The factors that influence complexity (and timescales) are as follows:
- Designing games: branching or linear
- Media formats and simulations
- Evaluation and assessment techniques
- graphic specifics (e.g. 2D or 3D)
The eLearning development process will move more quickly and productively if these barriers are removed. This means you’ll be able to offer excellent service at a fair price!
