Estimating the Cost of eLearning Projects
eLearning continues to develop as a feasible and cost-effective method to deliver training. However, the process of designing and developing eLearning is not without its abundance of complexities and decisions. Perhaps just as challenging of a task is ascertaining an accurate estimation of the skills, time, and resources required to complete a project. In this session, you will find answers to essential questions such as the following:
• What processes and roles to consider
• How to identify major process milestones
• What key factors to consider that impact cost
• Documenting assumptions
• How to apply estimation techniques to a project
• How to respond to RFPs
• How to avoid pitfalls such as unclear scope and client roles, scope creep, ill-defined system specifications, or lack of sufficient skill base to complete a project
