Podcast 26: How to Extend Learning Content Availability – With Troy Gorostiza

Talented Learning

Troy is a “triple threat” learning innovator with deep expertise as a content development practitioner, solutions consultant and technology vendor. And today’s interview is especially interesting because we discuss a common issue that inspired Troy’s most recent venture – the need to improve learning content availability. Until recently, several significant content availability obstacles limited the external reach of online training providers.

How Important is the Design Phase?


If you get the Design Phase completed properly, you have a detailed road map to drive the Development and Deployment phases. Management to the content developers, you must name the people that will be stakeholders and contributors. Many teams are now a mixture of internal staff and external consultants. If this is your first project, save time by dealing with one point of contact and consider hiring an Instructional Design Agency rather than single consultants.

Tasked with eLearning?


Even if you have a training department, they are probably so bogged down with mandatory compliance and classroom course development and delivery, there’s probably not an experienced eLearning instructional designer available for guidance, much less available to work on your new project. Spend your time focusing on your strength, management, not course development. You were selected to lead the project, not become a content developer.
