An E-Learning Contract That Helps You Succeed

So you’ve selected an outside vendor to help with your company’s e-learning project – or you’re that vendor who’s just been awarded said e-learning project – everyone’s excited to get to work. But there’s this small matter of getting a contract in place as quickly as possible, without losing momentum. This post shares some of Illumina’s 20+ years of experience with e-learning development contracts – what to look for and include, and how certain subtleties will help you deal with the practical issues of completing your project – and maintaining it afterwards.

Adaptive Learning Comes of Age

Back in the early days of my career, I was privileged to be involved in something that has lately become a fairly hot topic in today’s eLearning community. I’m talking about what we’re now calling “adaptive learning.”

The year was 1991, and in that time there wasn’t such a catch-all name for what we were doing. Back then, most companies were producing their training programs on videotape. Which is precisely where I fit in, making my living writing, producing and directing corporate and educational training videos.

The Nuts & Bolts of Illumina's Development Process Toolkit

A custom eLearning design and development firm like ours uses a diverse blend of creative design, media authoring and programming tools in our business. However, from time to time we get asked about the kinds of tools and applications we use to manage our elearning and blended learning projects, as well as what we do to organize and coordinate all the files that are generated as part of our development processes.
