We’ve revolutionized the way a training course is built.
Building new courses as often as we do isn’t easy. But we make it look like it is! LMS Courses’ course creation process is the most thorough yet efficient in the eLearning industry. Our name guarantees the highest standard in content quality and instructional design. Here’s a quick summary of what it takes to earn the LMS Courses name:
1. Topic Identification
The first step to building any training course is identifying the focus of your subject matter. LMS Courses typically identifies a new topic one of three ways:
- Market research reveals a widespread need not being met
- Current events warrant the addressing of an important issue
- A company submits a custom course request
2. Outline and Storyboard
Every great training course begins as an idea. In this early stage of development, our Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and Instructional Designers (IDs) construct a draft of the course content and then begin laying out the actual elements in storyboard format. This includes the script for the voiceover narration.
3. Course Kickoff
During this pivotal step, all members of our production team convene to examine the storyboard for accuracy, relevancy and flow. Questions and outstanding issues are addressed. Then the team reviews each slide of the storyboard and determines what type of slide it will be. Options range from general content slides that impart knowledge to learning activity slides that keep learners engaged. The storyboard and narration script are then finalized.
4. Content Implementation
Here is where all the hard work begins to take shape! Onscreen text, pictures and voiceover are added to the course builder in LMS Courses’ Content Management System (CMS). To ensure engagement and measure newly-acquired knowledge, clever learning activities are designed and added throughout the course. Finally, to tie it altogether, a bank of test questions are built to objectively quantify subject matter comprehension and retention.
5. QA, Final Approval and Launch
In this last stage before release, a cross-functional team comprising an SME, an ID and a production staff member review each course one final time. Minor changes may be made. Once approval is received from each team member, the course is officially made available to the market. Content updates may be made to any course as needed.
