Recruitment and assessment.
I'm in the process of recruiting for a new trainee elearning developer and have had a few internal applications.
These applicants dont have any developer experience but know the company inside out. I don't see their lack of developer experience as a negative because I can provide training on Storyline and our other publishing tools. The fact they bring company knowledge will off set this and will help them create the content we need for the business.
What I do need to understand is that they have a natural flare for picking up and using software systems (storyline, our lms etc.). I can't afford the training to be any more difficult than it has to be.
Has anyone been in a similar situation and do you have any advice on assessing technical ability to pick up software? I want to include something into the interview/assessment process.
