We often receive courses from clients to be updated that have been created by people with limited experience of elearning programs. And that’s totally fine. But, if you have limited skills, keep it basic.
One of the worst examples we see is when someone with a basic skill level gets hold of a course which has been created by a professional elearning developer and tries to replicate the functionality and design. Professional elearning developers have access to graphic designers, professional voice talent, animators and years of experience so it is highly unlikely that someone with a few months of exposure can produce the same quality of work.
So, if you have basic skills, produce a basic course. Pay attention to the flow, use good, solid content and keep it simple. And always, always keep the learner in mind, no matter what.
