I'm fairly new to Articulate Storyline and to building online courses for large corporate's. I wanted to ask for expert advice for what to do when a client seems to have a continuous moving target. I am collating the materials for the client, doing all the content & course development and design work on Articulate Storyline and getting more involved with the client whilst providing an online training solution for software that wasn't initially well received. I've learnt the software that needs to be taught and collated all the issues being experienced by the users and mind mapped the course plan in Excel. I'm now working through a 500 page manual and converting that into online training material.
I would so appreciate knowing what the norm is in terms of what you provide to clients. Do you normally get the materials given to you or do you learn everything required to put the materials together? Do you insist on sign offs for each module that you prepare before developing? How do you provide what will be covered in each module without spending hours on this when you could be building the course? I have provided a mind map of all that will be covered on the course but that doesn't cover every bit of development detail.
I also wanted to share an excel spreadsheet story boarding idea that I am working on as a way to collate materials. I am always so blown away by how generous people are with their time and advice on this community and thought I could throw this into the pot in case someone wanted to use this and add on from here as it is not 100% complete.
I'd be grateful for any advice on this subject. I fear that all I will be told is to storyboard every detail and get it signed off but it is the time of doing it all that I am struggling with!! I understand that a moving target also wastes time so I am just looking for the most efficient solution
