What roles does an elearning project need?

E-learning Manager

He/she is responsible for leading the educational project, and therefore, supervising the work team and the tasks of each one of them in all its phases.

It is usually a profile trained in project management not only at the beginning and development stage but also in its operation after delivery.

E-learning content developer

e-learning content developer profile

This profile works in the planning of all the e-learning content to be offered to the student.

Its main function is to develop the teaching material and its structure. Decide whether to plan by theme and what to include in each theme. Sometimes gamification elements are included and sometimes other types of elearning content are better.

This professional usually goes together with the graphic designer that we will see later on.

Instructional Designer

The instructional designer has extensive experience in learning and teaching methodology to create educational processes.

Depending on the needs of the project in question, structure the content to be implemented according to these needs. The same methodology will not be applied to a course in a school as to a training course in a company.

The elearning content profile is sometimes confused with that of an instructional designer. While the first is focused on creating resources, the second organizes the information and presents the content to ensure good results.

Graphic Designer

These are the professionals who implement the IT structure where the online training will take place. They work developing elearning platforms programming the necessary functions to carry out the educational project.

They are experts in different environments and web programming languages or LMS platform developers who take care of all the technical aspects required by the training project.

These developers leave a final phase for testing the project.

They perform quality tests at technical and user level for the resolution of possible failures.
