New offices at Bond's Mill estate

eLearning247 have moved to new offices at the historic Bond's Mill estate.

The Bond's Mill estate dates back to the early 18th century. A Stroud clothier named John Bond rented the mill in 1714 and Bond's Mill soon became one of the largest mills in Gloucestershire. The giant mill wheel stopped turning in 1934. The Ministry of Defence then took over Bond's Mill estate and it was cloaked in secrecy as they designed and tested weaponry.

3 top tips for designing effective eLearning

As with all types of training, a great place to start is with your target audience. Who are they and what do you want them to know?

1. Establish your target audience
Your 'target audience' describes the key characteristics of the learners that you're designing instruction for. It assists in your selection of objectives, examples, terminology, typical work practices, and cultural issues.

A good way to approach this is to build a profile of a 'typical' audience member: what kinds of things would that person relate, react, and respond to?
