After a course goes live... Maintaining your courses
Apr 19, 2016
So the focus in elearning development is often on getting a new course designed and implemented. But what do you do to maintain your existing library of courses to ensure that they still work properly?
I've been tasked with coming up with a policy/schedule to maintain a catalog of hundreds of online courses for a healthcare organisation. I'd like to create an update schedule plan, where I use feedback from users (gathered via end of course surveys) and usability/functionality testing to advise on updates and edits to existing content. I would send out a periodic report to the course owners/managers advising them that they need to make changes to their course.
Does anyone have any tips or resources on this? Has anyone put together a plan for maintaining courses once they have gone live?
The plan is to try and ensure that we don't end up with 5-year-old courses in our system, built in oldfashioned tools (e.g flash), and with outdated content and broken links.
Any tips/advice gratefully received.
