Designing training materials



I am just researching this as an idea at the moment.

Two ideas here that I am researching as potential projects within my business, would be interested to hear what you think:

I specialise in visual impairment, and would be interested to work with other trainers to ensure that their training materials are easy to see. Would this be useful?

Would you commission original illustrations? Have you done so in the past? Or do you prefer to use clip art and other sources?

Thanks for your time!

  1. Training Materials
    Hi Mary

    I – and most of the other trainers I know – tend to design their own training materials.

    When working with trainees with visual impairment, I would generally ask them if they want a larger print hard copy or if they’d rather have an electronic version they can use with their own reading software.

    I sometimes do my own illustrations – but don’t usually have the time. The idea of commissioning custom illustrations sounds great – but also quite expensive. I try to keep the cost of training materials down to under £2 per person – and these days tend to put everything onto a CD.

    I don’t like tired old clipart, but there are lots of websites where you can get copyright free photographs of just about anything you need.

    Sorry – this probably isn’t the answer you wanted to hear. But maybe other trainers take a different approach – so wait and see what else turns up.
