Experience tells us that communication between vendor and client is the keystone that successful projects are based on.
MHC's approach ensures our customers get the maximum opportunity to be involved and to contribute end-to-end through the development lifecycle, while keeping the project on track.
E-Learning Project Lifecycle
Work with customer to identify the elements that your e-learning projects should contain.
• Carry out readiness survey
The purpose of this step is to know the primary purpose of the e-learning product including the intended audience, key features, software & hardware requirements.
• Identify key features of the e-learning product
|Initial Cycle Planning||
Develop a plan for delivering the features identified at the Project Definition stage. The plan breaks the delivery timeframe into a small number of cycles of fixed duration, and indicates the features to be delivered at the end of each cycle.
Agree on how the project will deal with priority changes during and at the end of each cycle.
|Development Cycles | Interim Delivery Sessions||
Michael Hanley Consulting develop a working version of the e-learning product that will deliver the features ear-marked for delivery in the first cycle. At the end of this cycle:
• Joint session with customer to demo the product's functionality
|Product Acceptance||The last cycle completes the delivery of the agreed-upon e-learning product. Acceptance verifies the final feature list has been delivered and the product is ready for rollout.|
|Product Implementation||This phase integrates the e-learning product into your organisation's existing e-learning infrastructure.|
|Project retrospective||Evaluates the success of the project, identifies best practices and lessons learned for future e-learning projects. Points out risks and threats to future projects.|
