#GuildChat for 09/25/15: eLearning Development Costs

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, September 25 at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is eLearning Development Costs.

The definition of eLearning is expanding as just about anything we engage in online to improve our performance or provide insight can be elearning.  For this conversation however we will be looking at the costs surrounding formal elearning such as modules, courses, video and other deliverables by learning professionals.2015-01-09_11-14-16
