Project management tools
You have a Learning Management System? Good for you! But the main point is to drive users to learning something. By learning, I mean : acquire new skills, get familiar with new processes, be a better person, be capable of.... something new.
There are many pitfalls in e-learning. People might be tempted to play with your system but never truly use it. Or they might want to use it for fun, or as an information tool where you want them to practice and improve. This is why you need pedagogical engineering and become the man/the woman with a plan.
From the analysis of your audience learning needs to the delivery and operation of an online learning activity, there are a series of classical steps to go through: analysis > design > development > interaction > evaluation... And if your project is commercial you will probably add a strategic approach in terms of communication and audience targetting.
The Dokeos Studio team concentrates on managing the online learning project and working hand in hand with corporate clients to move from Idea to Reality. This interaction relies on basic project-oriented tools like Excel templates, project follow-up, delivery validation etc.
