How Do Course Designers Speed Up Development with Collaboration? #435

Collaboration in E-Learning #435: Challenge | Recap

One of the more challenging steps of the course development process is collecting and managing feedback from your clients, subject matter experts (SMEs), and stakeholders. 

But as with any collaborative relationship, you need to make a plan for success. That means thinking through how you’ll communicate effectively with stakeholders, motivate your reviewers, provide feedback, and manage expectations for the timing and delivery of the completed project.

If you have an Articulate 360 subscription, you have access to features that’ll help you collaborate more efficiently on projects. Some examples include:

🏆 Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to share one or more tips or best practices for collaborating on e-learning projects. You can share a simple slide with your favorite tip(s) or build an interactive example. 

🎁 Bonus: We’d love to see how you’re using Articulate 360’s collaborative features, including the latest integrated comments in Rise 360 and Storyline 360 and Storyline 360’s cloud backups in Review 360. Some ideas 

  • Post your project to Review 360 and ask your fellow challengers for feedback.
  • Review another challenger’s demo in Review 360.
  • Highlight any changes or edits you make to your Rise 360 or Storyline 360 project using the integrated comments.
  • Share your Storyline 360 project file to Review 360 as an attachment.

⚠️ NOTE: You don’t need an Articulate 360 subscription to participate in this week’s challenge. The primary challenge is to share tips or interactive examples of collaborating on e-learning projects. This can include any apps or tools you use to collaborate on any aspect of course development.

Practice Asking Open-End Questions to Promote Collaboration Demo: Review 360 Version: Here's a demo about how to encourage collaboration with your clients or stakeholders by getting them to talk more about their expectations.
