Planning an e-Learning Design Project


Lets say I am being asked to create a work-plan for an e-learning project. The end product is a 1 hour security compliance training. The content is ready, you just have say how long it will take to design and develop. Are there any industry standards for planning an e-learning project using Storyline 2? For example, lets plan for 30 minutes to develop each interaction and 15 minutes for each normal slide page and quiz page. So if the course will have 10 interactions, 30 normal slide pages, and 5 quiz pages... we can plan for 825 minutes/14 hours in development. Lets add 2 days onto that for designing the look and feel/template and an additional day to test the end result... so we are looking at roughly 40 hours of time or one week. (that seems like a very low estimate)

I know it all depends on the content (complexity of the interactions, etc.), but does anyone have any advice for planning the time necessary for such an e-learning project?
