SKILLSdox Inc., an Ottawa, Canada based company and SWIFT Elearning Services Pvt. Ltd. in Hyderabad, India have entered into a 10 year exclusive agreement to build out 100s of eLearning development templates for the most popular authoring tools used by all major organizations around the globe.
SWIFT, an eLearning professional service group was approached by SKILLSdox in the early part of 2013 to discuss opportunities around an outsourcing model. As the development work commenced, SKILLSdox saw in SWIFT the same level of quality, attention to detail and their quick response time. While there are many challenges within the development efforts to produce effective online learning programs, quality and quick response times are usually 2 that contradict each other. “When SKILLSdox approached us about creating over 150 dynamic templates directly in their authoring tool so that they could become more efficient with production timelines without comprising quality, we were excited to be part of this project that could change global development processes.” said Syed Amjad Ali, Director of SWIFT.
As within most project work, there are 3 constraints that are typically present. Time, Cost and Quality. The eLearning industry is no different. When there is pressure to reduce costs for development as an example, either quality or time to completion will suffer. The eLearning industry is relatively still quite young and with most companies still struggling through the development process, SKILLSdox has decided to do something about it. “When building an online course, it can take anywhere from to 4-8 weeks in order to create something that is dynamic, engaging and interactive. Our thought was why not pre design, develop and integrate learning assets directly into the main authoring tools we use. With these pre- developed e-templates, we are then able to reduce costs and development time down to about 1 week without compromising quality. As our library of e-templates increase, so do our efficiencies.” said Brad Loiselle, President of SKILLSdox.
Looking at the industry as a whole, other authoring tools such as Lectora, Captivate, Flash and Articulate all seem to face the same development challenges. Instead of SKILLSdox stopping at only the authoring tool they use, they have decided to expand their development efforts across the board. By combining resources, SKILLSdox and SWIFT are working to provide the industry with one of the largest portfolios of premium eLearning template repositories. SKILLSdox has launched its first version of its offering at www.e-template.ca and will incorporate all the new templates as they become available.

Benjamin Franklin says: “A good conscience is a continual Christmas”
Learning is a process of acquiring knowledge or skills. Students have a variety of learning styles, and learn effectively when these styles are prominently used during the training. It is therefore essential for the facilitator to use the right mix of styles to reach out to a variety of audiences.
Adults in contrast to children have different learning patterns as they gather a variety of experiences. Training will be fruitful only when it relates to those experiences. The instructor or trainer must not only focus on the gaps of the learner but also on their strengths.
Tips for the trainers to engage adult learners:
- Acknowledge learner’s experience
- Make the content relevant
- Know the target audience
- Ensure training effectiveness from the learner’s perspective
The purpose of motivating the adults is to:
- Direct them in their learning
- Improve their capacity to analyze issues and apply the gained knowledge
- Convert the training session into a true learning experience.
To conclude with, engaging adult learners is a laborious task but can be easily overcome if the trainer makes use of some common logics and understands the adult learning styles.
