Stages of the Custom Elearning Development Process

The standard steps that our instructional designers follow are:
Stages of the Custom Elearning Development Process

Step 1: Planning & Analysis

Instructional designers, along with other stakeholders, brainstorm course objectives, course formats, project scope and goals, and other elements at this stage.

Gathering Content

Step 2: Gathering Content

The elearning development team collects course content and then sorts and organizes them. The content may be sourced from internal resources and online research, or obtained from subject matter experts.

Template Development

Step 3: Template Development

Our IDs take a templated approach to their instructional design process. These professional-grade templates facilitate rapid designing, development, and deployment of elearning.


Step 4: Storyboarding

At this stage, an elearning course is previsualized by arranging the different content in a logical sequence. This is where instructional designers map things out in an orderly fashion based on the content and template they have.


Step 5: Multimedia

Our instructional designers put together multimedia files such as voiceovers, videos, images, infographics, and animations to make elearning an engaging experience for course participants.

Course Development

Step 6: Course Development

After completing all the preliminary tasks, course developers now get down to developing the actual course. For this, we use ProProfs Training Maker, an intuitive elearning authoring tool.


Step 7: Testing

We now come to an important stage in elearning course development. Here, the course is tested to make it deployment-ready by identifying and resolving errors and bugs.


Step 8: Revisions

Before finalizing the course, course designers seek feedback and suggestions from stakeholders and make necessary changes.


Step 9: Implementation

This is the final stage of elearning development where the instructional designers roll out a course and make it available to learners. Our team will train you how to manage the course, share it with learners, and evaluate performance over time.
