How to Develop an Online Training Course for your Business

WorkPlan explains how to develop an online training course for your team.

Online corporate education is far more cost-effective and convenient than in-person training. For online training to be beneficial for your employees, however, you must create quality training courses. By understanding the process of creating a quality online course, you will be able to effectively educate your employees. This is especially true if your modules are made with the aid of a corporate LMS. Here’s how to develop an effective training course for your team.

Define Your Goals

Firstly, you should figure out what you want your employees to learn from your course. An effective way of doing this is by finding any deficiencies in your employees’ current performance and then moulding your module to address them. You should also consider what the optimal outcome of your training should be, which will allow you to evaluate the module’s effectiveness and optimise it.

Know Your Audience

For your course to be as effective as possible, it needs to be appropriate for its audience. For instance, if your course is targeted at people new to your team, you shouldn’t use industry-specific terms without explaining them. Conversely, overexplaining things can be seen as condescending, which will make your audience disengage.

Decide on the Right Type of Course

There are many different ways you can present your course information, each with its own utility. For example, videos are a highly engaging way of conveying information and are especially good at depicting processes and evoking emotional responses. However, if you wanted to communicate a large amount of detailed information, a pdf document.

Build Your Course

While there are several ways to create and distribute online corporate learning material, an LMS is one of the best tools available. Corporate LMS programs such as WorkPlan Learning allow you to easily build online course, communicate with students, and track their progress.

Get Feedback and Revise

It’s unlikely that a person’s first attempt at anything will be fantastic, and online corporate education is no exception. Have a few of your employees run through your course, then test their proficiency in the course’s content. By testing how well they understand the content, you can refine your approach accordingly.
