The ten questions you must ask at the start of any learning project, with Joe Ganci
Show Notes

In this candid and insightful episode of L&D Go Beyond podcast, Amit Garg speaks with Joe Ganci, President of eLearning Joe, a custom learning company located outside Washington DC. Joe speaks about ‘10 questions you must ask at the start of any learning project’.  Joe has been involved in every aspect of learning development since 1983 and holds a degree in computer science. He is also the recipient of several awards for his work in eLearning, including a lifetime achievement award in 1999 and eLearning GuildMaster award in 2013. 

In Joe’s view, the podcast topic is of substantial importance because it very well addresses the mistakes that eLearning creators have been doing. So, there are those crucial questions that need to be asked primarily to save time and money. The topic essentially discusses every role in the learning industry, mainly for people in the decision-making areas. Below are the major takeaways from this podcast-

- Understanding the learner audience; answering the ‘why & what’ from needs perspective.
- Language, a key aspect in deciding efficiency and productivity while creating your designing and development.
- Considering learner audience literacy levels, religions, job roles, and culture.
- Time spent on learning, accessibility, and motivation – an audience perspective. 
- Content, context, and storytelling as important aspects to envision learner engagement.
