6 Reasons to Rely on an eLearning Partner
It’s no great secret that regularly upskilling your team will help your organisation become even more successful. And if, like many others, you’ve chosen to use eLearning for this, you may be wondering whether you should create the content in-house, or use an eLearning partner to do it for you.
To help you decide, let’s look at the ways an eLearning partner can help when it comes to creating bespoke eLearning content.

Once you’ve identified the need for some new or updated eLearning content, the faster this can be created the better, since getting it into the hands of your learners as quickly as possible will help you realise the benefits of improved productivity sooner.
By using a good eLearning partner with a diverse skillset you’ll get great content which fits your needs exactly, in much less time than it would take you to create it yourself.
You might be thinking that creating your eLearning content in-house could be more cost-effective and that since you’re already paying the staff you have, why not get them to do the work?
However, doing this will take you much longer, could cost you more, and you may not have all of the resources (people, skills, software, licences etc.) you need to ensure that your training materials are effective. Instead, outsourcing your eLearning content creation leaves you free to focus on your other L&D priorities while a professional team creates custom courses tailored to your needs at a fraction of the cost.
Your eLearning partner can also design the content in such a way that it can be easily updated when required. So if you need to make any changes or updates in future, you’ll save even more money.
Technical experience and expertise
You’ll benefit from the technical expertise and experience your eLearning partner will already have. Having travelled this road many times before, they will instinctively know how to deliver an engaging and impactful experience for your learners and will have the team in place to make it happen.
A good eLearning partner will offer the services of a dedicated project manager to oversee the content development process, as well as direct access to the instructional designers, UI/UX experts and digital designers, who will be working on your project. And all of these people will have strong, relevant and current skillsets which they can draw on to make your eLearning content the best it can possibly be.
Access latest technology
There are often many different technological requirements when building a course, so asking your eLearning partner for help is worthwhile. Not only will they have access to the latest tech, they’ll know how to get the most out of it and can put these skills to good use when creating your content.
With a good understanding of the core instructional design principles, coupled with their knowledge of the latest ID and digital design trends, an eLearning partner will be able to create content for you that is both visually appealing and highly effective.
Finding an eLearning partner who understands your business, your culture and the needs of your learners is key, since this will enable them to create courses that are a good fit. They will be able to quickly and easily run with the brief you give them and deliver eLearning content that makes a positive contribution to the overall effectiveness of your organisation.
