Educational and Environmental Support for Novice E‐Learning Developers
The e‐learning marketplace is evolving. Many organizations use rapid e‐learning development tools today, and instructional designers often need to upgrade their marketable skill‐sets as applied to e‐learning. We gathered survey and interview data from academic and corporate samples of instructional designers and e‐learning developers to investigate which features of rapid e‐learning development tools they value and why. Results suggest that formal education and organizational support are needed to help them become competent and marketable e‐learning practitioners.
