The content development process consists of four main stages: Planning and Analysis, Design, Development, and Deployment.
- During Planning and Analysis, msi will analyze the company’s goals, the target audience, and the existing work and training environment. Once the goals and objectives are determined, instructional designers will research the subject matter and scope, create the curriculum map and define technical and functional requirements, so that the courses can be developed.
- Next, instructional designers will create the design document, the prototype, the storyboards, the scripts, and the guides as required.
- During development, the designers will first develop construction standards and templates. Then designers will produce the media elements in order to construct the courseware. Once the courseware is created, designers will construct the student and learning experience evaluations. Last, in order to assure quality, they will facilitate a walkthrough and complete the pilot.
- Developers will create a deployment plan. Once the plan is developed, they will receive final approval and signoff from the client. Lastly, they will complete knowledge transfer to the appropriate client representatives, help to communicate the training rollout internally and complete the evaluation revisions.
