Additional Information


Instructor-Led Training - including front end analysis, design, lesson plans, handouts, workbooks, PowerPoint, SME reviews of content to be used during live, face-to-face learning events.

  • 22:1 - ILT training, Simple learning content, possible repurposing of learning source material, with minimal learning support materials

  • 43:1 - ILT training, average project for creating corporate ILT class with well documented deliverables (Lesson Plan, Handouts, Workbooks, PowerPoint Visuals)

  • 82:1 - ILT training, Complex subject matter, very custom, extended time spent on formatting classroom deliverables

Level 1 eLearning (Basic) - Including content pages, text, graphics, perhaps simple audio, perhaps simple video, test questions. NOTE: PowerPoint-to-eLearning often falls into this category. Basically pages with assessment

  • 49:1 - eLearning output, Rapid Development, Simple Content, Specialized Authoring Tools (i.e. PowerPoint to eLearning tools)

  • 79:1 - eLearning output, Most typical (average) Level 1 eLearning Content

  • 125:1 - eLearning output, Complex projects, difficult to produce, more media production

Level 2 eLearning (Interactive) - Level 1 eLearning content plus 25% (or more) interactive exercises, allowing learners to perform virtual "try it" exercises, liberal use of multimedia (audio, video, and animations)

  • 127:1 - eLearning output, Rapid development through templated interactions, simple animation, efficient or low-end media production

  • 184:1 - eLearning output, Most typical (average) Level 2 projects

  • 267:1 - eLearning output, advanced and custom interactions, embedded simulation activities and lots of media

Level 3 eLearning (Advanced) - Highly interactive, possibly simulation or serious game-based, use of avatars, custom interactions, award-winning caliber courseware

  • 217:1 - eLearning output, templated interactions, templated games and simulations, efficient simulation development practices (rapid development)

  • 490:1 - eLearning output, Most typical (average) Level 3 projects

  • 716:1 - eLearning output, complex projects, advanced learning simulations and games, extensive media production  

NOTE: Several respondents listed times greater than 2000+ hours of development per finished hour (very advanced learning simulations and games)
