E-learning standards in your comany?
I have been tasked with creating E-Learning standards at my company to:
-- document our internal development guidelines
-- provide guidance for vendor-created content.
Below is my first draft...I would love to hear if/what other people are doing not only for Articulate designed courses but also for courses created by other companies. Keep in my mind company delivers everything through our LMS...
There is a status indicator or table of contents
Do not use auto advancing screens; let users go at their own pace
Title page should have DCO number and document numbers where applicable
Attachments should be watermarked to say “For training purposes only”
All information should fit on one screen without any scrolling
Include quiz and storyboard as part of validation paperwork
Indicate how users get credit for the course in the body of the course (in the SYN212 course, there was no indication you were at the end of the course and needed to answer a question to get credit)
List the question number and number of questions for each quiz question (Question 3 of 5)
Provide feedback (correct or incorrect) after users answer questions
Quiz questions should be in multiples of 5 where possible
Indicate if a course has audio
Provide controls to adjust the volume
Make narration/script clearly available to users if they do not have audio
Instructional Design Standards
List objectives for every course
ID to work with SME on creating a content outline
ID should review quizzes to ensure they map to learning objectives and are covered in the course
Thanks, looking forward to hearing your feedback!
