Make sure learners have the technology to view your hard work! January 25, 2007

Posted by Marguerite Fallon in Intructional Design, Lessons Learned.

When looking to design an e-learning session, don’t forget to look at technology.  Whether it is live or online, you need to know what is being used by your learners. Ask these questions before you start.

  • Have the learners taken e-learning courses previously?
  • What level of keyboard/mouse skills do the learners have?
  • Do the learners’ computers have soundcards, Flash, Media Player?

  • What Internet/Intranet connection speed do the learners have?

  • What processor speed do the learners’ computers have?

  • Are there any other computer limitations to the learners?

Believe it or not, not everyone has the latest and greatest in PC’s. You may develop a really cool session with voice, animation, interactivity, only to find out it can’t be used because the learners are on dial up. Very disappointing!  So more pre-work to do when looking at your latest e-learning session.
