No matter whether you need assistance with elearning design, the development of elearning modules or both, I am here to help. I will work with your subject matter expert(s) to create elearning that is effective and visually appealing.
Advantages of Elearning
Elearning has a lot of advantages. It’s cost effective for larger groups, self-paced, accessible 24/7 via the internet, ideal for a wide-spread workforce, easy scalable and it offers independent learning.
How you can use Elearning
There are endless possibilities with elearning for your business. You could:
Make your ‘on the shelf’ content accessible for a broader group of employees;
Create an elearning module from a popular PowerPoint presentation;
Start with micro learning to boost or refresh knowledge;
Change your face-to-face courses into a more blended approach;
Create an induction elearning module or
All of the above.
Elearning is not the solution for all training needs. In some cases, face-to-face training, a simple job aid, coaching on the job or a blended approach is the way forward. An analysis of the training needs should be the first step, (ADDIE) followed by design and development. I would love to sit down with you and analyse your training needs and objectives to find out whether creating elearning is the way to go.
I work with Articulate Storyline 360 to create elearning modules for your business and have worked with Elmo elearning in the past. Have a look at the case studies to see what I have been working on.
Developing an effective and engaging face-to-face training course requires more than putting together a PowerPoint pack with presenter notes. With over 10 years of experience in design and development of training for different industries and as a trainer, I am the right person to help you deliver results with face-to-face training.
Together with your subject matter expert(s), I’ll design and develop a face-to-face training course that meets all your learning objectives, within the set time frame and budget. With their knowledge and my instructional design skills and training experience we will make a great team and create a course that is both engaging and effective.
We’re all different. As some learners prefer the self-paced and independency that comes with elearning, other learners need a classroom environment to practise and gain new skills and knowledge. Advantages of face-to-face courses are the interaction with other learners and the trainer, one-on-one explanation if needed, asking questions on the go and practising with a bit more handholding.
Let’s start with an analysis of the training needs (ADDIE) to determine whether a face-to-face training is the way to go, followed by the design and development. We might choose for a mix of online learning and face-to-face training or a virtual classroom.
To ensure that your course can be delivered by your trainer(s) and brings the required results, I’ll deliver both a trainer’s pack -including a PowerPoint presentation if required- and a learner’s guide or work book. I will also assist with the implementation and evaluation of the course to ensure your trainer(s) are up for their task.
Being a trainer is not everyone’s ‘cup of tea’. You might have great subject matter experts in your business, but that doesn’t mean they are able to train your employees effectively. Or facilitate a workshop and keep their independency at the same time. With 8+ years of experience as a trainer, I am ready to help you out.
Dianna as a trainer
As a trainer, I am always looking for interaction with the learners and encouraging learning from each other through discussions and storytelling. I once got the advice ‘a good trainer is a lazy trainer’, meaning that the learners need to do most of the work, not the trainer. Storytelling, exercises, group work and a variety of media are my favourite ingredients for an engaging training.
Train your employees
If you need a ‘hands on’ trainer to deliver your course content, because your trainer is not available or you need more capacity for a short period of time, let’s have a chat. My specialties are training in processes and legislation, but I have also delivered system training, skills training and facilitated all kinds of workshops.
Upskill your experts
Your course content is ready to go, but your expert is not up for the task to deliver the training. In a few training sessions, we will work on their confidence as the presenter, give them tips and tricks to keep the learners engaged and ready to take on the trainer role.
Whether it is team building or a workshop to kick of a project, I look forward to be your independent facilitator. I will guide you through the agenda -that we can set together- and include a variety of activities to make the most of the time you have together and get to the desired outcome.
