Social learning platform - time to develop training?

Hi All,

I'm looking for some insight... I was recently asked how long it takes to design training content for an online learning platform/ social learning platform such as NovoEd (https://www.novoed.com/) or Intredpid (https://www.intrepidlearning.com/).   When I develop on this platform I include articulate interactions as well as classroom exercises in online break out rooms. So, it's a blend of both classroom design skills and elearning design skills.  Has anyone had experience estimating the amount of time it takes to develop using this modality?  

thanks!

Hi Shanna. There are a number of different approaches people use for estimating development time, but a lot depends on the complexity of the projects you're creating. I've written this article with some things to consider and links to some of the industry-standard resources for estimating course development time. Many of them are focused on transforming ILT to e-learning but they should help with estimating at least some of the work you're doing.
