Description

OVERVIEW

Online Learning for Businesses (OLB) is an online learning program for learning and development teams and stakeholders to create online learning experiences for clients, customers, and personnel.

Throughout the program, participants will learn everything that goes into creating an online course—from careful planning and preparation, to designing an effective and engaging curriculum, to creating the course collateral (e.g., videos, graphics, exercises), and finally to launching the course.

Applicable to L&D stakeholders across the organization:

  • Instructional designers who are responsible for designing learning materials

  • Project Managers who are relied on for smooth execution

  • Subject-Matter Experts whose knowledge is too important not to share

  • Product Owners who are accountable for training development and sign-off

Practical, hands-on training:

  • Templates for designing your course and aligning with stakeholders

  • Tools and exercises to think through options and make the best decisions

  • Activities to practice and apply creative skills

PROGRAM DETAILS

The full program consists of three courses that cover two tracks:

  • Course 1: Getting started with creating online courses

    Learn what makes a high-quality online course and the various options to consider when you first plan to create a course. Be guided through an envisioning exercise to plan and align on the course experience and potential delivery platforms, and then hear an overview of the full process of creating an online course.

  • Course 2: Designing online learning experiences

    Learn how to develop a logical curriculum flow and choose an effective content delivery method. This involves making critical instructional design decisions and completing key deliverables at each step of the course creation process: plan, develop, build, and run.


  • Course 3: Bringing the learning experience to life

    Learn how to push a project forward from start to finish: workplanning, budgeting, aligning stakeholders and keeping them accountable, selecting and managing vendors, tracking and organizing course collateral, logging and addressing issues, and releasing the course to participants.


ABOUT COURSE 1

The first course in the OLB series, Getting started with creating online courses, is useful for teams that are just beginning to think about how to develop online learning programs. After taking this course, participants from the same organization will be able to:

  • review the many options for course design

  • align on major decisions for the course

  • get on the same page regarding the path forward

While organizations can still benefit from just one or several team members taking part in this course, we strongly encourage all stakeholders who will be involved in the course development process to complete the course: course owners, subject-matter experts, instructional designers, project managers, and others who will have a voice in creating the course experience. By independently exploring options, teams can combine ideas to develop a powerful vision for their organization’s learning program.
