Keywords:eLearning, Globalization, Localization, Translation
Creating effective global eLearning initiatives requires strategic planning and process development to avoid mistakes that can turn off global learners. In order to successfully implement a global training program in a cost effective, efficient way, corporations must consider budget, timing, design, and content relevancy. These factors become more complex when considering lingual, regional and cultural differences across the globe. Preparing to face these complex challenges with stakeholder buy-in, defined procedures, and inter-department collaboration will ensure the success of the global initiative. This article will explore eLearning best practices and methods when applied to a global audience, and address common pitfalls that can result in inefficiencies and miscommunications.
