How to Create an eLearning Course on a Tight Budget

Recently I was invited to participate in an online article on the how to create an eLearning course on a budget. Checkout the complete article and my part on Storyboarding your course at https://www.joomlalms.com/learning-management-system/create-elearning-course-budget.html When it comes to eLearning, there are two hot topics that never go out of style in the eLearning circles. The first one is “How to create a qualitative and engaging eLearning course?” and the second one is how to do so on a tight budget. Why? Because the two of them determine the success of your eLearning business in the long run: whether you will have a steady stream of customers waiting to get enrolled in your courses and whether the funding is used wisely. We asked top learning designers to share the insights on how to design an eLearning course with limited resources. An interesting fact that nobody told us that it was impossible or the course would be tiresome and plain then, moreover, there turned out to be many ways to save money when creating an eLearning course, therewith making it engaging, interactive and well-designed.

H5P – interactive elearning tool with HTML5 and Javascript

Recently I received an email from MoodleNews and it had an article about H5P. The opening line for the article was: H5P is an interactive content standard. Based on JavaScript and HTML5, it is perhaps the best contender to replace Flash once and for all. Plus, it’s open source. But the best way to do it justice is by letting you see it in action. This grabbed my attention and started doing a little digging. I’d not heard of H5P or what it could be used for. I did learn it’s open source, so there’s one tick in the box. It can link into an LRS, another tick. I don’t know how long H5P have been around, but what I’m discovering is fantastic and opens up new opportunities for building interactive elearning tools and formative assessments. What else do you do but create an account with H5P at https://h5p.org/ WOW! What you can do with their interactive tool is nothing short of awesome! After a very quick play, and I mean I had been logged in for less than 5 minutes, I came up with the interaction below, based on the 5 Technology Challenges Faced By Adult Learners. There are so many interactions you can do that this is just the start. So what are you waiting for? go have a look and see what you can come up with!
