As head of an organization that has been a trusted offshore eLearning content development partner for several global organizations, I will dip into my own experience to outline the pros of eLearning content development outsourcing.
Let me begin with an important input from my earlier article How to choose a custom eLearning company in India? where I had outlined the factors that have a bearing on your decision to outsource.
Having clarity on why you want to outsource and what gains you seek from each of them is vital in creating an effective outsourcing strategy.
