Abstract

Educational institutions face several tasks and challenges when they aim to develop e-learning courses for corporate clients. Instructional designers, subject matter experts, instructors and IT experts do not always have the necessary insights and knowledge with respect to particular areas of the industry. Hence, the educational institutions must involve experts from the corporations and collaborate closely to develop quality courses that satisfy all parties. In this article we present a new method for the design of customized corporate e-learning. This method approaches e-learning design as an integrated and iterative process and encourage interdisciplinary cooperation between all involved stakeholders. The method builds on key elements from the concurrent design methodology as well as several instructional design models that are already well proven in connection with e-learning design. We describe the method in detail, and outline a plan for future evaluation.
