The analysis phase starts with a kick-off meeting with the client’s working group. During the kick-off meeting, we:
- Get to know everyone,
- Go through the proposal,
- Discuss the required or already available source material,
- Express our mutual expectations,
- Discuss the planning
- Plan schedules in advance where possible.
After the kick-off meeting, we start working on the content. We lay the foundation of the module in the analysis phase. We collect all the source material, analyze the content and determine the structure of the module. We organize this visually in a mind map. The client approves this mind map before we start the next phase.
To give an impression of the module at an early stage, we develop a prototype. For this, we elaborate and develop a number of screens, using a didactic script. The prototype gives the client an idea of the design, the writing style, the operation of the module and the work forms. The prototype is shown at our Development Academy. Before we further develop the content, the client must approve the prototype. We will continue to develop the module based on the prototype and the feedback received on it.
In this phase, development continues based on the basic elaboration of the prototype. We write out all content in detail in a didactic script in Excel. The client assesses the first version of this elaboration and records the feedback in this Excel file. We then adjust the script and finalize this in consultation with the client. Before we start developing the module, the client must approve the script. After approval, development starts and we process all texts, as well as the visual and interactive elements. We test the module before it is delivered to the client.
As soon as the test version is ready, the client tests the module for correct operation. The client is responsible for collecting the comments from the testers, drawing conclusions and recording them in the supplied Excel file. Small textual changes are possible, but far-reaching changes to the content and the screens lead to additional work. There is one round to provide feedback. Multiple feedback rounds are possible, but deliver additional work, because coordinating and processing the changes takes extra time. Our advice: plan sufficient time for the feedback round and ensure that all required testers are involved. This way we can prevent additional work. Also submitting comments in a different way than via the Excel file, for example in Word or PowerPoint, leads to extra work and therefore to extra time. We then process the comments and finalize the module in consultation.
We deliver the final module as a SCORM publication. We then place the module in the Academy, the LMS of the client or another possible location.
