eLearning Offering Overview

Could your company benefit from eLearning?

Our eLearning offering consists of building a custom set of topics, classes, and course for each client. All step-by-step demonstrations in the software are created from the client’s version of the software to represent the client’s business process and customization of the software. Also, background information such as business rules and processes outside of the software are included in the eLearning topics.

eLearning courses are made up of the following components:

  • Topics: 5 to 10 minutes; i.e. Creating a Service Request in Maximo
  • Classes: 30 to 60 minutes, 3 to 6 topics; i.e. Navigating & Searching in Maximo consists of 5 topics
  • Course: 1 to 4 hours, 2 or more classes, usually role specific; i.e. Maximo for Supply Chain, Maximo for Maintenance Technicians, Maximo for Supervisors, Maximo for Planners and Schedulers

Each eLearning topic is developed as a standalone, self-paced learning tool. At Technology, Training ,& Consulting, Inc. we are not eLearning development tool dependent. Check out our list of eLearning content development tools!

Each topic may include the following elements:

  • Learn: Learners read and listen to the key points of each topic.
  • Show: Learners watch how the process is performed within the application.
  • Do: Learners try the new skills.
  • Assess: Learners take a knowledge quiz or test.

All topics include “Learn” and “Show” elements. The “Do” and “Assess” elements depend upon the client needs, business rules, and software employed for eLearning development. The storyboards for each topic shall identify the elements included within the topic.

Our Instructional Designers follow the same development life cycle no matter which development tool you choose. Developing an eLearning course has three parts to it:

  1. The development of the Instructional Design Document (IDD) – where the topics, classes, and courses along with learning objectives are defined.
  2. The development of the eLearning content.
  3. The support and maintenance of the content after it is implemented into the client’s environment.

eLearning courses developed by Technology, Training, & Consulting, Inc. can be hosted on virtually any Learning Management System (LMS). If an organization does not have access to a Learning Management System (LMS), the course files can be loaded onto an intranet site with a table of contents type navigation page or even distributed on a CD for the users to have access to. Some tracking and grading functionality is lost in this second hosting method, but the course still works effectively.
