What is REL?

Rapid e-learning development saves time and money by approaching the design and production process differently than traditional methods. REL is e-learning that can be developed quickly and inexpensively.

Course Development Comparison between traditional, modified and rapid design

As shown above, traditional course development requires the investment of both the Subject Matter Experts (SME) and the course designer to produce content. The modified traditional method requires the SME to produce the content which is then delivered to the designer to modify it according to instructional design practices. Both of these methods require significant time and money to produce a training course. REL saves time and money. See Benefits of REL below:

Benefits of REL Design

Companies benefit from REL in many ways: cost savings, rapid deployment of courses, increased employee production, and reduced overhead.

Significant Cost Savings

Rapid e-learning development allows the SME to create content and incorporate design through quality "plug and chug" templates, asset repositories, and interactive plugins. This approach reduces costs and delivery time for creating training materials.

 

Rapid Deployment

Rapid authoring tools for fast course deployment

The use of rapid authoring tools expedites training material production. These tools allow the quick creation of Flash-based interfaces that support SCORM compliant modules for participation and assessment tracking. A repository of assets which include images, audio, animations, simulations, video and interactions, support materials, etc. also expedites the process.

Result-Balanced Production

REL design reduces the time and effort spent on navigation and interface design and places the emphasis on producing the intended result.

Define Results through:

  • Goals and Objectives
  • Performance Metrics
  • Opportunity for Practice

 

Goals and Objectives

Design the training course around the company's definition of success. Success may be defined as increased employee production, or promotion of the company's safety record, and/or reduced travel expenses or overhead. The most important and always required area is the company's expectation of its Return on Investment (ROI). Will this training reflect a financial benefit for the company? Measuring success by course delivery or by the number of participants will end up not meeting the company's definition of success..

Performance Metrics

Performance metrics are defined through data selection, collection, and analysis. Use data to evaluate whether production or processes improved after training. Media Rich Solutions uses the following approach to define performance metrics:

  1. Identify critical work processes and company requirements.
  2. Identify critical results desired and align them to company requirements.
  3. Develop measurements.
  4. Establish performance goals, standards, or benchmarks.


Opportunity for Practice

A course that requires the user to perform a task or to learn a concept, is not complete unless practice is built-in. Learning objects are great tools for practice. Flashcards, scenarios, worksheets, simulations, games, etc. provide additional opportunities for practice.

Leveraged Learning

Media Rich Solutions designs courses that are relevant, logical, and contextual. Courses that frustrate the learner are the fastest way to ensure that learning does not take place. This ultimately results in an unsuccessful training.

Relevant courses incorporate real-world situations. Make sure that the employee is exposed to the real-life experiences of their job.

  • Example: this interactive uses real-life court cases to teach about sexual harassment.

Logical navigation schemes and road signs direct the employee to the next step, slide, action, or activity. Design a cue or icon system that is easy to understand and identify.

  • Example: this module contains both a table of contents and forward/back navigation.


Contextual
information is grounded in the familiar. If you want an employee to retain the subject matter, tie the lesson to a concept or action that is already known.

  • Example: this animation on the OSI model uses football to support learning.
Logical design: Employees ask who, what where, why, how, and when


MRS designers recognize the needs of the employee and design around them. Employees will always ask:

  • Why am I taking this course?
  • How is this going to help me in my job?
  • What do I have to do next?
  • Where is this taking me?
