Training Issues in Small Organizations: Applying Basic Instructional Design Principles with Limited Resources

Technologies are increasingly available and many small organizations are looking for e-learning tools to train their employees, members and clients. However, they often cannot imagine what is involved in creating e-learning in terms of human and material resources. The designer working outside the purview of educational institutions or larger businesses must be creative in finding thebestways to meet the needs of smaller organizations.

This master class will be presented in French.
