ELearning Governance

Jul 12, 2016

Is anyone currently using a standard governance model as it relates to elearning? I'm looking to replicate a tool that covers: course authoring tools standards, labels and naming, content creation, template guides, inclusion policies, lifecycle policies, etc.

Any insights you can share are appreciated!
Thanks :)

Hello Susan,

I agree that this is a needed area of development for many larger organisations, and have been wanting to do something similar as an eLearning Style Guide. 

As a small chunk of content for inclusion in your guide - re Accessibility - I recommend referencing the international standards set in the 'Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0)'.  Not directly written for eLearning content but very applicable.  Below is a paragraph from a report I wrote in response to a query about accessible colour contrast in eLearning modules.  (FYI I am in Australia)

'In November 2009, the Online and Communications Council (OCC) endorsed the requirement for all Australian, state and territory government websites to conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0), initially at Level A by December 2012 and later to standard of Level AA by December 2014.  The WCAG 2.0 success criteria are grouped on three levels – A, AA and AAA – with Level AAA providing the maximum accessibility. '

I love to see your Table of Contents when you have developed.

Thanks Christine
