Content requirements for corporate training range from very simple topics to highly complex. And, more often than not, there are multiple subject matter experts (SME) involved. But, if the content creation process is clunky it causes delays in training, unidentified errors and more.
When lots of content is needed quickly, it’s imperative to have a system in place. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.
For instance, version control is a big problem when multiple experts are working on a piece of content — files get emailed from computer to computer and saved in various places. The struggle isn’t just with identifying the most recent version to work from but it also must seamlessly make its way into the LMS and learning pathways.
Creating lots of content quickly is also a challenge when multiple SMEs are involved.
Sometimes, SMEs are also privy to content that would be a good resource to have in the LMS. For example, a risk compliance officer might keep a current list of state statutes that apply to the company. An LMS should be able to link out to that document where it’s stored and always have the latest version. This would minimize changing links in the LMS, course assignments etc.
As you can see, there are a myriad of situations that make it difficult to create content quickly and collaborated on by multiple SMEs.
Many people might think of content and an LMS as two separate things. But, in the context of corporate training they absolutely go hand-in-hand and must be considered during the selection process.
Content will always be important for all use cases but in particular when it comes to highly regulated industries. This is when the creation of content can get troublesome.
