1. Time to Develop

This survey is designed to determine an industry average for the amount of time it takes to develop one hour of instruction for Instructor Led Training, e-learning, simulations and various other types of online instruction from simple (page turners, limited interactivity) to complex (moderate to high levels of interactivity).

Based on your experiences, please consider the design of the instruction from "A" to "E", as in ADDIE. The "E" for our purposes is formative evaluation. Not summative.

You will be asked for a MINIMUM number of hours and then a question asking the MAXIMUM number of hours. If you have no experience directly related to the question please DO NOT put an answer. The results will be averaged and reported in an upcoming web article.

* 8. What development software are you currently using to develop instruction?(Choose all that apply.)

* 9. How many hours needed to develop one hour of classroom stand up instruction? *Remember this is from Analysis to Evaluation (Formative) as indicated in the instructions.

* 10. How many hours to develop one hour of self-instructional print material?

* 11. How many hours to develop one hour of instructor-led, web-based training delivery?

Using software like Centra or Adobe Connect or WebEx- two way live audio with Power Point.

* 12. How many hours to develop one hour of instruction in an e-learning template tool like TrainerSoft, Toolbook, Lectora or Captivate, with LIMITED interactivity and no animations?

* 13. How many hours to develop one hour of instruction in an e-learning template tool like TrainerSoft, Toolbook, Lectora or Captivate, with MODERATE interactivity and limited animations?

* 14. How long to develop one hour of instruction in an e-learning template tool like TrainerSoft, Toolbook, Lectora or Captivate, with a HIGH LEVEL of interactivity and multiple animations?

* 15. To develop one hour of instruction in a PowerPoint e-learning template tool like Articulate, with LIMITED interactivity and no animations?

* 16. To develop one hour of instruction in a PowerPoint e-learning template tool like Articulate, with MODERATE interactivity and limited animations?

* 17. To develop one hour of instruction in a PowerPoint e-learning template tool like Articulate, with a HIGH LEVEL of interactivity and multiple animations?

* 18. How many hours to develop one hour of instruction with LIMITED interactivity and no animations not using a template.

* 19. How many hours to develop one hour of instruction with MODERATE interactivity and limited animations not using a template?

* 20. How many hours to develop one hour of instruction with a HIGH LEVEL of interactivity and multiple animations without using a template?

* 21. Please indicate the development time to create one hour of a simulation for a piece of equipment or hardware:

Sometimes called equipment emulation.

* 22. Please indicate the development time to create one hour of an interactive softskills simulation:

Softskills meaning sales, leadership, ethics, diversity, etc.

* 24. Based on your current experiences, please share any other factors that effect development time? (Scope creep, deadlines not met by client, etc.)

* 25. Would you like to participate in our more in-depth survey on the same topic? This survey will ask more specific, targeted questions that will require additional time to fill out.
