What are conversion services?
Conversion refers to adapting your existing training resources into e-Learning content. In some cases, you may simply want to cut and paste content from a Word document into a series of e-Learning slides so that it can be uploaded to a Learning Management System. In other cases, you may want to transform your content into interactive, professional e-Learning Modules.
Converting services can help you transition quickly and easily into using a Learning Management System, as it optimises all of your existing resources for LMS use.
At eCoach, we have a team of in-house designers. These designers are experts at creating and converting e-Learning materials, and can tailor your content to suit your needs. We've worked with a huge range of clients, from WesTrac to the Department of Education.
How the conversion process works
The conversion process follows 12 steps:
Prior to the conversion process
1 - The client sends through documents to be converted.
2 - The design team have a creative meeting to evaluate the documents and decides on an initial direction for the content.
3 - The design team meets with the client for a tissue session and gets their feedback on initial concepts and direction for the conversion.
4 - The design team creates a branded eCoach account for the client based on the client's branding guide.
5 - The client is invited into the eCoach platform to approve branding.
The conversion process
6 - An in-house instructional designer creates a storyboard for the project in a Word document. This involves creating the structure of the conversion as well as writing any scripts for animations or videos.
7 - The storyboard is created in eCoach, with content, photos, videos, animations and illustrations placed in their relevant sections.
8 - The draft eCoach Module undergoes a final quality check by the project lead before being sent to the client for their first review.
9 - The client sends through their feedback with any changes.
10 - The design team actions all changes and sends the project back to the client for a final review.
11 - Once the final project is approved, any other necessary additions, such as professional voiceovers, are taken care of.
12 - The client is sent the final project to be shared as they wish.

What does the final report look like?
Each module typically contains 60% Presentation tiles, 5% Interactive/Challenge tiles, and 35% Text + Image/Video tiles. Our designers try to stick to this breakdown as it results in highly interactive and engaging e-Learning resources. Quizzes are also provided as separate modules, which allow you to test the effectiveness of your content.
What file formats do existing resources have to be in?
We accept most file formats, though they usually take the form of a PDF, PowerPoint, Word document, or e-Learning slides.
If you don't have any resources to convert, but do need content created, we've also got you covered. We have specialist in-house writers who can create storyboards based on a set of criteria that you'd like to see covered in a Course.
How much does it cost?
