You’ve been tasked with developing your first training course, and the time frame is tight. What next? That’s a very abrupt first sentence for an article - but that’s how it can feel when an eLearning content development project is dumped on you for the first time.
Where to start? What type of end product is required? What is even feasible in the project’s time frame and budget? There are so many questions that need answering but one of the main ones is ‘what type of eLearning content will you be developing’?

Amount of content
The subject at hand and ideal mode of content delivery
The audience’s knowledge
Your business goals
Let’s look at the different types of eLearning content so you can make an informed decision about which ones might be a good fit for your project.
