Hi Claudiane,

I wish there was an easy answer for this question, but there really isn't. Every project is a bit different so there is no real formula for how long these steps are going to take you. Most people generally estimate how long it will take based on their past experience.

If this is your first project, I would suggest trying to keep track of how long each step takes you so that you'll be able to more accurately estimate for subsequent projects. It may be a good idea to keep doing so for the first few projects, so you can determine which criteria make the process longer or shorter.

Hopefully some of the other community members will weigh in on their techniques.

Hi Claudiane,

I agree with Allison, there really isn't a rule as to how long you must spend on these deliverables.

I think the content is going to drive the time spent on each deliverable. I'm developing a course right now where the client has all of the information in a PDF guide, he just wanted an interactive course to go alongside it. The content is there, I just had to design it in a way the learner can interact with it and learn more from the static PDF.

On the other hand, I've had projects where there's a lot of research I need to complete before even getting to the development side of things.

There's been a lot of conversations about storyboarding vs. prototyping and that potentially could slow down or speed up the integration into SL, depending how you develop your storyboard/prototype.

Hope this helps!
