Knowledge, Learning, Community

The audience for an article like this is a corporate or commercial e-learning provider working either for a company or freelance looking to quickly produce content that is "a digital educational resource that is typically delivered online and is accessed via a computer or mobile device (that) can be self-paced or instructor-led and is designed to provide learners with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in a particular subject or job (and) can be interactive and may include activities, quizzes, videos, and other multimedia elements to enhance the learning experience." The tools they recommend to do the job are expensive, but if you can develop a market (or corporate budget) they probably pay for themselves. The courses I'm subjected to at NRC were probably produced this way. I found this article to be a decent overview, though be sure to follow up on websites like iSpring Suite or Elucidat.
