Converting a distance learning product


I've written a distance learning workbook for marketing staff in a specific vertical market. The product has been market tested with excellent user feedback and is now widely used.

I'm thinking of converting the materials for delivery via CD-ROM or the web.

What is the best way of doing it? And what are the issues I need to consider?

  1. Converting a distance learning product
    Hi Alan,

    you could consider talking to ( who have a range of products from web delivery of distance learning content to downloadable PDA distance learning.



  2. Fund a professional development with a partnership
    You will only convert these materials into sucessful online learning if you talk to professionals who specialise in doing this kind of thing. Otherwise you are much more likely to convert the materials into a library of useful documents.

    If you are aiming to create a learning resource, rather than an information resource, then maybe one of the companies that currently use your materials could be talked into recognising the benefits of funding the development of the online learning. You both end up winners that way. They gain online learning for their staff without having to create their own content, and you come out with a version of the programme that you can use with other clients and/or learners.

    I’d be happy to talk to you about our content conversion processes if online learning is what you are aiming for.
