Converting ILT Content to “e”: One Size Does NOT Fit All!

As organizations migrate to an online platform for delivering training, there is a tremendous need for course content.  Instructor-led Training (ILT) classes are designed to be facilitated and controlled by an instructor while e-learning classes need to stand alone, allowing the learner to control the learning process.  We all have a whole series of ILT classes that we currently use and many people think you can just “slap it into” the e-learning platform.  However, there are still many factors to consider and obstacles to overcome when converting an existing ILT class into e-learning class because… “One Size Does NOT Fit All!”

 In this session, you will learn:

1.      What criterion is used to decide if an ILT class is appropriate for e-learning.

2.      The steps involved in converting an ILT course into an online course.

3.      Why it is important to be culturally sensitive with your examples and photos.

4.      How using stories and exercises engages the learner.

5.      What it took for an organization to embrace e-learning in lieu of ILT classes.
