As the use of e-learning has grown, investments made in design and production have increased, as has the complexity of the content development process. Failing to establish requirements and learning objectives at the beginning of a project typically adds to costs and timelines or reduces the quality of the final product. This outcome can lead to underdeveloped courseware, a reduction in the effectiveness of the training and a diminished return on investment in the product.
MHC provides a range of end-to-end learning and development services including pre-development consulting to help customers make important decisions that affect the scope, cost and quality of the product.
Instructional Design & Review
|ITL to WBT Conversion||
Most organisations already possess a library of current and legacy training materials, including
• PowerPoint presentations
With our philosophy of "create once, reuse many times" we will assist in the process of refactoring current training materials into a Web-based format.
Where appropriate, we provide guidance on what works, and what doesn't work on the Web. We assist customers where needed in reviewing and redesigning content for delivery online, and will recommend approaches on making your content effective across a range of delivery channels.
|Instructional Design & Review||
The goal of organisational learning is to enable an enterprise to meet its business objectives. By reviewing customers' existing courses and collaborating with clients to develop new content, MHC can help you improve your training initiatives.
We use a proven instructional design methodology based on a mix of Gagne's Events of Instruction, Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives and the ADDIE approach to create highly effective learning paths.
|Learning Needs Analysis||
It is important to identify learning needs before trying to implement any training solutions. MHC's approach to this activity is to assess learning needs at four levels:
• Needs of the Organisation
Among the advantages of this approach are that learning can be customized to requirements, prioritized, and rapidly implemented to enable organisations maintain their competitive advantage.
|Performance Gap Analysis||
A performance gap analysis determines the performance that employees exhibit when they perform a task in the context of the potential performance they need to exhibit to perform that task more effectively. In one way, one type of performance gap analysis is similar to a learning needs analysis in that it
• Identifies a problem
Based on the results of a Performance Gap Analysis MHC can identify appropriate training interventions to "bridge the gap" and enhance employee performance.
|Current Training Evaluation||
The Learning Cycle is a continuous process which consists of:
• Learning Needs & Performance Gap Analysis
Without evaluation we do not know if the investment in learning has had the desired result. Using Donald Kirkpatrick's Learning Evaluation Model to assess the effectiveness of learning initiatives, combined with Jack Phillips' ROI Methodology, Michael Hanley Consulting assists customers evaluate their training programs in terms of:
|Subject Matter Expert Training||
We teach organisations how to develop learning materials using the best resources at their disposal: their own in-house experts. Using a Rapid E-Learning methodology we can show you how to:
• Develop training templates
