Customer: So what are you doing about getting this curriculum on-line? I want 100% on-line.
Developer: This is a radical change and we need to think about the audiences' needs to see if this is the best method for them. Are you asking that the entire curriculum be converted to e-learning?
Customer: Yes. I want it all on-line. How long will that take?
Developer: Well, we need to redesign the materials, add instructional strategies, check with the IT department, add visual elements and interactivity and then roll out the training. The ratio of development time for conversion for online training is anywhere from 40 to 100 hrs to 1 hr of delivery depending on the level of interactivy and current state of content, and for a 6 week curriculum - that's a very long time.
Customer: What? Can't you just scan it all in? I thought you could just scan it into the computer. I am sure I saw somewhere that you could just scan information into the computer.
I hope you've never had a similar discussion but I bet you have...
