The Delivery Assurance

The outsourced vendor has Learning Management System (LMS) that is vetted and set up for quantifiable delivery. Designing a particular course, adding reading material as required, inviting industry expert, handling queries, testing and certification can easily be handled by the eLearning vendor.

Now that we understand how hiring an eLearning Vendor is a smart decision it is easy to set the criteria for selection of a right vendor.

The Top 5 Factors of Selecting eLearning Vendor:


1. Understand how the Learning Management System Works:

A good delivery is always based on a process that is standardized. Make sure the vendor has a good Learning Management System that allows the participant to attend the training sessions easily, connect with the trainer when required in case of difficulties or have access to already conducted sessions with the help of a recorded session link and so on. All the LMS features must flow fluidly and is a must criterion for selection of the right vendor.

2. Licensed Backend Tools:

The eLearning programs are built & run on software and tools. It is of utmost importance that the Vendor’s Learning management system (LMS) is based on software's and tools that are bought legally and have valid licenses. The company also must be using tools and pictures, photos that are purchased with a valid license or are copyright free. The last thing one wants is the system that crashes or halts due to pirated software, which is often the case with cheap eLearning systems incidentally.

3. Check Experience & References:

The eLearning vendor under scrutiny must be able to display the work done so far. It is always important to check the references of the company on the Internet as well as through legitimate references the company will supply as part of the proposal. A good eLearning vendor will have a lot of proof to provide. The eLearning provider's caliber of trainers and coordinator's always needs to be verified.

4. Focus, Scalability and Cultural Adoption:

A focus is the first step towards achieving success. The vendor must be able to show the continued work done by them in the field of your choice. For e.g. Training offered in the digital marketing field or SAP subject. An eLearning vendor should be able to handle a range of field related programs. Further, they should be able to accommodate few or a large number of attendees from different locations. The scalability is essential. Another important piece that must come together is that the vendor should have the ability to handle people from different cultures or even a simple variation in accent can put the attendee off from the learning program.

5. The Cost Rider:

The reason a Corporate chooses to go the outsourced route is to be able to achieve the objective in a cost-effective way. The vendor must be able to bring substantial cost benefit by offering good quality content with easy eLearning tools at reasonable expenses. The cost rider must never be off.
