Migrating from legacy e-learning content to the current

Lot of organizations today are looking to convert their legacy e-learning content to newer technology based content that can be seamlessly delivered through the web. The use of today’s technology allows e-learning content to be built with various interactivities, evaluation and assessment capabilities and allows seamless integration onto different platforms. These advantages and the fact that, organizations are trying to get rid off the obsolete technology behind their courses, make compelling reasons for course conversion.

If you’re one of them, here are some pointers for you to think about.

Updating the course - While converting your legacy content to newer technology and platforms, it’s not necessary to stick to the same old course content, methodology, design and structure. For example, if you’ve had a course for your installers for years, it is possible that the content in the course is out dated and it might be a good idea to update the course content to accommodate the current training requirements.

Media content compromise - In the migration process, it might be tempting to use the same media content instead of developing new one. While there are cost advantages of such a compromise, it might have an adverse effect on the quality of your course. Going back to the earlier example, say the course has bulkier media content that cannot be extracted to a lighter, more easily deployable format. In that case you’re better off developing new media.

Future proofing - The need to repurpose your e-learning courses to newer and more advanced technologies can arise over and over again. Future proofing your courses by adhering to latest SCORM and other such standards will allow you to accommodate such migrations with minimal costs and efforts.
