3 Key Requirements to Consider When Delivering Different Kinds of Content in eLearning
July 6, 2022

The intent to offer eLearning opportunities is only as strong as the ability of a business, University, or nonprofit organization to deliver a diverse range of effective content. Multiple sources of educational material and programs exist. Some create them in-house while others outsource the entire process to third parties. Another option involves collaboration between outside consultants and the organization itself in order to create a custom program.

No matter which one of these you choose, they all require a functional ecosystem that smoothly onboards and enables learners to engage with content When delivering different types of content in eLearning, the following three requirements are key to success from all sides.

1. Make Sure Partners Can Provide Different Types of Content

Learning programs routinely include multiple types of content. Technology used to deliver programs must accommodate all leading types of content, and program creators must be ready to provide templates, coaching, and best practices to organizations that deliver learning. Strong partnerships with a SaaS provider and consultation team are the twin requirements for successful eLearning.

Technologies throughout all industries are rapidly changing and online education has risen to meet the needs. SaaS partnerships that offer help with creating effective eLearning content matter more than ever. Only 45% of university educators believe current systems are sufficient in this changing educational landscape [1]. Schools and other entities that offer classes and training need help.

2. Make Sure Your Technology Is Ready and SCORM Compliant

SCORM (shareable content object reference model) compliance makes it possible for eLearning lessons and other content to function on a range of systems [2]. Just like a mobile app would function on any brand of phone that uses the same operating system, educational content from multiple sources and types must work on the technology that an L&D, higher ed or non-profit organization uses to deliver learning. Cloud-based, online learning platforms must meet the needs.

It is easy to understand why a focus on widely used technical standards matters when it comes to delivering content for people accessing classwork or training. The content only provides value if it is accessible to all.

3. Make Sure You Know Your Brand and Can Deliver

Finally, any educational institution or organization that offers training must understand their own brand identity so they can deliver what their target audience expects and desires. This leads to a clearer and more effective overall eLearning process simply because the learner receives a cohesive and recognizable experience no matter what piece of content they interact with.

Branding is equally as important for the company or organization itself. Recognizing and claiming a defined identity streamlines everything from content creation to marketing and the sales process [3]. Recognition leads to trust, which ultimately results in increased profit and market reach. Authenticity in brand expression also boosts responses with 88% of consumers stating they are more likely to act on effective strategies. [4] Even nonprofit organizations can reach their goals more easily with effective and deliverable brand identity efforts.
