Best Practice-Narration ?
A bit of background: I'm completely new to eLearning and am taking courses and following the articles, etc. on this forum to learn more about it. I manage a number of educational programs and most recently I have two programs that are consist of multiple eLearning modues. My role is to oversee committees of SME's who create our educational content. A separate department is responsible for the instructional design.
Okay. We frequently have to review and update our courses to determine if they require content changes per our accreditation guidelines. As I'm reviewing these online modules, I'm confused by the narration.
Should the narrator read all of the text that appears on screen? Is it okay to switch back and forth between multiple narrators? Or, when we make changes is it better to have the entire thing rerecorded? I'm noticing that the IDs are kind of removing certain things, but not necessarily updating the audio.
I'm happy to hear feedback or even receive suggestions for further reading.
