Maximising the Reusability of Your eLearning Content

Repurposing your eLearning makes sense. You’ve spent the money on eLearning development already, so why not maximise your investment?

In this blog we’ll talk about strategies for creating eLearning content and assets that can be repurposed and customised for various training needs, ultimately saving you both time and money.

Developing eLearning content that’s adaptable to various training needs is a smart approach.

Here are some ways to do it.

Break Down Long Course Content

Break down your course content into smaller modules that focus on one concept or topic at a time. This saves time and resources by using existing content for new training courses.

Use Templates

A well-designed template is adaptable to various topics, allowing you to reuse them by replacing text, images, or multimedia elements while maintaining the overall structure and brand consistency of your courses with incorporated logos, colour schemes, and fonts.

Create a Library

Creating a library of reusable assets such as graphics, videos, and interactive elements, that can be mixed and matched to meet the requirements of different training modules.

It simplifies the process of updating or modifying course content by having everything in one shared place.

Responsive Design

Make sure your eLearning courses are responsive for different devices. This is important because learners access content on a wide range of devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. 

This supports different training requirements without the need for a major redesign of your course.

Editable Assessments

Create assessments in a way that allows for easy changes.

Using question banks is a great way to reuse content because you can pick questions from the bank and use them in different courses.

You can update and expand the question bank as needed. If courses change or new topics come up, you can modify the questions to match.

Consider Translations

Keep translation and localisation in mind during the initial design phase of your project. Leave space for translations and ensure that culturally specific examples can be swapped out easily.

Considering translation early can be cost-effective, reducing unexpected expenses related to design modifications when implementing the translations. 

Use Feedback

Regular feedback from your learners helps to minimise the need for major overhauls or costly updates to your eLearning. By implementing the small adjustments based on feedback it’s a more cost-effective approach to improving your content. 

Closing Thoughts

By using these strategies, you can create eLearning that not only saves time and money but also provides a foundation for customisable training solutions.
