Workshop to help firms make sound investment in bespoke elearning

On 5 March 2020 Can Studios will host a free workshop to help companies explore options for creating custom elearning content. Yet despite their commitment to help more people access the benefits of quality online learning, Can Studios is prepared to put some delegates off developing courses entirely.

Elearning offers huge benefits. As well as cutting delivery and travel costs, it provides convenience, scalability and geographical reach. For common training needs a huge range of low-cost, off-the-shelf content is available.

However Can Studios works with companies whose niche requirements demand bespoke material, providing either full-service production or the tools and training to let companies build courses in-house.

High-quality bespoke elearning can and does improve training outcomes, and save money over the medium to long term. But to get great results and return on investment you need to go in with your eyes open.

With 20 years’ experience advising clients of all types and sizes, Can Studios appreciates elearning is no silver bullet; Project manager Adrian Tunnicliffe said:

Elearning isn’t always the right answer. Can Studios gets a lot of repeat custom precisely because we’re not afraid to advise people against developing an online course if we don’t think it will get the outcomes they’re looking for.

“High-quality bespoke elearning can and does improve training outcomes, and save money, over the medium to long term. But to get great results and return on investment you need to go in with your eyes open.”

The workshop will help participants make informed decisions and sound investments around elearning.

“Elearning isn’t always the right answer. Can Studios’ gets a lot of repeat custom precisely because we’re not afraid to advise people against developing an online course if we don’t think it will get the outcomes they’re looking for.”

The half-day event will provide a whistle-stop tour of the technology, skills, processes – and potential pitfalls – involved in elearning production, including:

  • what elearning types might best meet different needs
  • what skills, tools and technologies are needed
  • how to assess the business case for a specific operation / objectives
  • whether to outsource, or complete some (or all) of the project in house
  • how much different approaches are likely to cost.

Adrian Tunnicliffe said:

“I fully expect we’ll cause a few people to shelve projects that they had been considering, which is fine. Helping people get the best from educational technology means listening carefully, thinking creatively and advising candidly. It’s the best way we know to ensure our industry continues to thrive and innovate.”
