HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO CREATE E-LEARNING

elearn

E-learning or most commonly known as M-learning is the modern way of learning; it is performed through computers and online education. Lately, this technology has already been adopted by many educational institutions like schools and colleges, training institutions. We all love to gain knowledge, but the demanding schedule, traveling distance; despite the fact, we all want to gain the education in the most effective way possible. E-learning is not the latest trend, but the necessity of today’s time; people get the relevant study material and training as per their convenience. E-learning is a business activity and a huge industry.

Why need e-learning

Mobile learning or e-learning has vast benefits. The first benefit you receive is the instant access to the material; your staff can easily access training resources, whenever they need. It helps the employees to learn anywhere, anytime as per their convenience and they would not be solely dependent on offline study material. The technology used can be given to students like videos, more practical information with “augmented reality games” and “social learning”.

When an educational body wants to incur the e-learning method within their system the first question pops out, “How much does e-learning cost?”, it’s not at all an invalid question since we all have encountered many a times situations, where we are either over-charged for the services or don’t get the quality. To know beforehand the estimate of your e-learning cost would help you in many ways. The first-time app development costs are generally high and the ongoing costs are lower. The total costs include the software applications used to create the mobile app, the additional features added, content creation (which is an ongoing process) and the convenient user interface. The answers to cost questions cannot depend on one factor are usually broad and rough at the outset and become clearer once the final output is delivered. E-learning creates a value to the business, a start-up cost, and running costs. Even if you have a pre-defined set budget figure in your mind, yet you must know how much the eLearning costs. Here are a few questions you should ask yourself to make sure you know what you’re paying for and what you’re getting.

How to Develop The e-learning Development

E-learning creates a value to the business, a start-up cost, and running costs. Even if you have a pre-defined set budget figure in your mind, yet you must know how much the eLearning costs. Here are a few questions you should ask yourself to make sure you know what you’re paying for and what you’re getting.

  • Content Creation

Content creation is the trickiest job since it does not approve the mediocre approach. If your e-Learning company handles the content part than it incurs the additional money to learning cost, since the e-Learning company would have to source, write and review the content. On the contrary, if you provide the content from your end, then you can save a lot of money, in the latter situation your e-learning company would take your raw content and create SCORM compliant eLearning.

  • Attractive content

In today’s time, we don’t have enough time to read the theory with no interesting feature set in, such as graphics, narration and easy to relate language. Not every e-Learning developer comes packed with these required features, but you need to put extra efforts to find the one because such developers are hard to find and do not come at a low price. In order to make your e-learning an investment you need to concentrate a little more on the attraction of your content, so the dual task of delivering the learning objective and telling a compelling story, can be confined to your e-learning portal.

  • A Global Approach

With the current technology, turning globalized, you would not restrict your platform in your region only; you would market your product as much as you can generate the favorable revenue for your business. You need to pick the developing company, who is well-versed with a professional translation agency, so your content can be translated into different languages. Whichever vendor you choose, you’ll need to make sure that they deal with a professional translation agency. Don’t let your developers rely on Google Translate, although it’s the most favorite tool for most of us, but when it comes to translating the detailed points, are failed to be translated. With this feature, your product would attract a huge number of customers around the world and since you would provide the content in their language, they can build the trust factor with you.

  • Different Functions are needed

People find any product more interesting, when it comes exciting and engaging feature, a plain e-learning module would not grab much attention. to make your e-learning module you should include video, animations, and gamification features, and you need a team of eLearning developers with the requisite experience. To imply these features, it would require the services of various minds, who would be skilled in gamification, Instructional Designers, developers, graphic designers, videographers and proofreaders, video presenters, researchers and voice-over artists. Albeit, a simple e-learning module can also be successful, but to add some of the features would attract more customers for an engaging experience. The number and type of courses you will offer that includes video lessons, & texts, etc. You can decrease app development cost by giving preference only to the core features in the first version of the app.

  • App Design

A most significant and vital point to decide the cost factor is App Design. A good design (UI & UX design) always motivates the learners to engage with the content and spend more time on the app. It would surely cost a little more, but it would be worth to spend this much amount.

  • App Platform

In order to reach vast numbers of audience, create the e-learning platform not focusing on one major platform only, but try to cover as many as possible in the second version, it may cost but you don’t limit your product to the distinct users.

Tools for Developing Web Apps

  • IUI
  • jQT
  • iWebkit:
  • Adobe Captivate 7
  • Claro
  • Lectora Inspire

Tools for Developing Native Apps

  • Articulate Storyline
  • GoMo Learning
  • Phonegap
  • Rhodes by Motorola
  • Titanium

It would not be wrong to say, that technology has ransacked the each field of business today. There is not a single field today, which does not support mobile app. No doubt,mobile app has made our life way easier than before, now every action / command/ task can be accomplished with just a tap on our mobile app. Similarly, when I talk about every field, then finance field has also been affected vastly, and it has turned the banking and managing the money easier. Gone are the days, when you had to stand in the long queues in banks and your grievances were not addressed by anyone. Now there is a huge list of android and iPhone apps to maintain our personal finance apps.

App world is flooded with the numerous personal finance apps, which are trending in the market, for the reasons like combining the transactions of multiple credit cards and bank accounts into one view. These apps give us an accumulated version of our transactions happen across all our accounts. With this piece of writing I would like to focus more on different functionalities of different personal finance apps. Every finance app has it’s own unique features and as users, we all want every financial feature in mind that can benefit us. We fear to share our details on these apps, thinking, these apps may simply attain the real-time data of our financial accounts, which includes savings and checking accounts, investment services, lenders, and credit cards. But, the best part is these apps have the only read-only access, which means the app won’t be able to move money from the bank accounts. As a matter of fact, even the complete account number would not be visible.

Today, we discuss a few of the trending personal finance apps in the market to give you a random view of the collected information from the various resources. The topmost of the list is Mint, which is basically for U.S. and Canada only, it is available for both iOS and Android. This app accumulates the information of our account such as account balances, alerts and transaction summary and categorizes the information. It also lets you opt-in for push notifications about bills. Second in our list is Venmo a free app that allows to send and receive cash easily from friends. It offers a rather basic but incredibly useful function with a clear focus. It is available on Android, iPhone and Web. Next in the line is PayPal app, it manages the account, send payments, request funds, view the recent transactions, and even shop in stores. It is available on Android, iPhone, Windows Phone and Web.  Another iPhone app, which is relevant enough to be mentioned here is Budget Boss, a simple, smart, easy-to-use app that creates a budget, evaluates its effectiveness, and makes informed decisions about the financial future. In the line of iPhone apps, Qapital is a personal finance app helps saving for financial goals easily.The last on our list is Level Money, this app is specifically for those who have an easy-to-be managed financial situations. This app tells you how much you can afford to spend day-to-day, as well as how much money you can spend.
