Increase your Training Reach and Lower your Costs

Blend ILT with eLearning!

Convert your Classroom Material into eLearning Curriculums

Do you think it’s impossible to replicate the engagement of classroom training in eLearning?

Here’s the thing. eLearning designers with a background in both classroom training and eLearning can transform your training material (PowerPoint decks, facilitator guides, and participant handouts) into instructionally sound, impactful, and engaging eLearning curriculums.

 

Why is an eLearning Curriculum
Better than a Long Stand-Alone Course?

ILT to eLearning Curriculums

As though the usual benefits of eLearning in terms of convenience, reach, and cost and time savings are not enough, eLearning curriculums have:

  • Better retention rates: Unlike most learning acquired in the classroom that is forgotten within a week after training, retention and recall is better when ILT materials are converted to an eLearning curriculum (microlearning modules of 15-20 minutes each).
  • Better completion rates: Yes, and these short micromodules can be delivered on mobile devices for refresher and just-in-time learning.

This makes the eLearning Curriculum your best bet in your learning journey!

Can You Automatically Convert
ILT Material into eLearning Curriculums?

The short answer is “No”. You cannot take a beautifully designed ILT PowerPoint deck, publish it with Articulate Storyline or iSpring and call it eLearning. Why not?

Because designing and developing engaging and interactive eLearning courses calls for sound instructional design principles, the ability to transfer the essence of ILT into eLearning, besides expertise in rapid development and authoring tools.  Our ILT to eLearning conversion process developed and refined over the years guarantees excellent quality output, quickly and within budget.

This is what we do with your ILT material. We take care of:​

ILT Content

The content

We map existing content from all sources (e.g. PowerPoint decks, facilitator guides, and participant handouts) against the learning objectives, and fill up content gaps if any.

Narration text in PPT decks

Who hasn’t been baffled by the sketchy explanatory notes in the notes pane that most facilitators add to their PowerPoint decks? We script the entire narration for the course, working closely with your SMEs.

Overcoming the Absence of an Instructor

The absence of a facilitator

Effective trainers make ILT sessions lively and engaging, creating successful learning outcomes. When we convert your ILTs into eLearning, we ensure your course substitutes for the best possible facilitator by making it engaging, thought provoking and easy to interact with.

Opportunities for all learners

No matter how engaging a facilitator is, he/she can interact only with a few participants at most. However, we incorporate a number of interactivities of various types to make eLearning engaging and interesting – for ALL learners.

Engaging ILT to eLearning Conversion
Assessments in eLearning

Questions to check understanding

Although good facilitators regularly check learners’ understanding through questions and feedback in the classroom, not every participant can be assessed. In eLearning, all learners can take practice questions (formative assessments) to reinforce learning and a final quiz to measure learning at the end.

Quick turnaround and dedicated to seeing our project complete on time and on budget. Our project needed a vendor that was training focused. We interviewed a number of larger firms that showed little to no interest in the training piece of this project.

CommLab India came in with a direct focus on what we needed to achieve and made that happen on time and on budget.
