Why I created this eLearning calculator…

I decided to create an eLearning calculator for anyone who wants to get an indication of how much their face-to-face training currently costs.

Since starting my own freelance business I have received quite a lot of eLearning enquiries. I love being in the position where I can choose the next project I take on. If I feel I wouldn’t be proud enough to show the project in my portfolio, I usually don’t take it on. I feel strongly about designing and developing excellent adult learning experiences which drive behavioural change.

Of course, everyone who contacts me wants a good great value for money. So, I frequently hear the sentence “we don’t have much to spend” from clients.

I recently had a client use my quote calculator and when I did a follow-up, it transpired that they had an unachievable budget. The question that I asked was “did you costings for this training or were you given this budget?”. I advised the client that they could probably do some high-level calculations to see how much their current face-to-face training was costing them. So, if they had difficulty finding someone to take on the project, they may be able to negotiate a larger budget.

I hope this tool helps you get a better idea of the savings that can occur when moving face-to-face content to a digital learning experience.

How can I help you?

I can offer you a variety of services which can help you to identify if a stand-alone eLearning module or blended option are right for you.
