Opportunities for Learning and Sharing Around Best Practice E-Learning Initiatives

While online- or e-learning options are becoming increasingly popular among both teachers and students, their development can eat into limited resources—both time and money. This article offers eight best practice tips to create budget-friendly e-learning material including: repurposing existing content, using e-learning authoring tools and apps, including external links to additional resources, using templates, using DIY (do-it-yourself) narrations (rather than hiring professional actors), using tools that capture screen recordings, and partnering with subject matter experts and e-learning specialists. Are there other ways your instructors could help to drive down the costs of e-learning courses, without sacrificing outcomes?

As e-learning becomes more prevalent, and offers increasingly budget-friendly opportunities to expand educational programming and reach, educators can benefit from adopting best practice methods of e-learning creation and implementation. These tips can be a good starting point. But don’t overlook the experience and expertise that may already exist within your school system. Provide opportunities for teachers to come together to share their own best practice experiences with each other.
