Lesson 2. SMEs, Stakeholders, Roles: Where You Fit Into All Of It

In this webinar, we will discuss the human element within an eLearning project including various roles & stakeholders, managing expectations. Even if you aren’t a project manager, you still have to deal with various moving parts like subject matter experts or getting feedback from others. And where people are involved, there’s always the potential to spend a lot more time working things out. We will also talk about what your true role as a content developer is, what you can do to manage expectations of both sides and how you can set yourself up for success. We will discuss your specific questions, scenarios, and eLearning projects.

Topics covered:

  • Understanding subject matter expert, or SME, roles, and importance
  • Managing expectations on both sides
  • Becoming an Advocate for Learners
In fact, no matter what your role is, your real role is being the learner’s advocate. No matter what your stakeholders say or what your content is, you’re doing the best for your learner. No matter how you’ve planned each phase and given yourself leeway, remember that all the content is to be learner-centric. The point of being an advocate is that you understand who your learners are, how they learn and what their preferences are.
