Hi, Thanks for your query. E Learning Industry is the best and the future of education.


As you already have experience as a Trainer, you can join any company as Content Developer.

After gaining some experience considering you already have a BCA degree you can become one of the integral parts of E-Learning Team of your company. use the skills learnt during your graduation into practice and try to improve it. Keep yourself abreast with the latest technology and mobile apps. As thatsthe future. Try to target schools especially International schools. Apart from this you may look for MNCs from IT sector, banking, commerce etc. Now a days coaching classes also providing online resource to their students. Approach colleges or intitutes providing distance education. You have to be a good and patient reader and at the same time need to be creative as much as possible. And pursuing MBA-HR will definitely do world of good for you. Now a days post graduation is very important. But do from a decent college if possible part time so that your job is not left. So keep on going ! All The Best. Thanks Rachit

Hi,


Its great to know that you have a work experience and what to start something on your own along with doing an MBA - HR .

MBA is a big diversified sector of management studies. In India, its a 2 years full time program, where in in the 1st year you will be learning about every segement of management and based on your performance and interest developed in the 1st year, you will be choosing 2 specialisations.


That is where you can choose IT and HR. IT because you have a computer background and you are aiming at doing something in the same field and HR because thats your passion and interest.

Now talking about starting a carrer in the E- Learning Industry, this is a very upcoming industry which has flourished in the last couple of years and will continue doing so as per the survey reports. Npwdays every person whats to keep on increasing their knowledge by learning something or the other and the best and easiest way is E - Learning platform as it has no place and time restriction.

As you have experience as a trainer, why not do you your MBA distance modeonline and simultaneously join a company as a content developer for their IT department or else you could as a freenlancer develop content and train the IT department of many corporates as BCA is your background.

Think and decide your future very very carefully. One wrong step can shatter your dreams. Best Wishes

Dear Aspirant,

You have chosen a very good, upcoming, challenging as well in demand career option.

eLearning industry is the industry of the next generation with survey and research reports suggesting that this industry will transform everything in education and career.

For getting into eLearning industry, you need to have command over technical skills as well articulating and imagination.

Instructional Designing is a mandatory skill which is required for working in the eLearning industry taking your BCA as a background. A course in Instructional Designing is a must and very beneficial.

Instructional Design (also called Instructional Systems Design (ISD)) is the practice of creating "instructional experiences which make the acquisition of knowledge and skill more efficient, effective, and appealing." The process consists broadly of determining the current state and needs of the learner, defining the end goal of instruction, and creating some "intervention" to assist in the transition. Ideally the process is informed by pedagogically (process of teaching) and andragogically (adult learning) tested theories of learning and may take place in student-only, teacher-led or community-based settings. The outcome of this instruction may be directly observable and scientifically measured or completely hidden and assumed. There are many instructional design models but many are based on the ADDIE model with the five phases: analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. As a field, instructional design is historically and traditionally rooted in cognitive and behavioral psychology, though recently Constructivism (learning theory) has influenced thinking in the field

Go ahead in this industry. MBA HR wont directly help in this industry.

Best wishes

Hello, reading on your inquiry I see you are juggled between two extremely different career options. MBA HR is focused on the soft skill sets and content development associated with E- Learning solutions are totally technical. I assume you have chosen to do an MBA HR because you aspire to do an MBA but I don't see any link for it with your focus for future career development. So I would highly advise you to drop off the MBA HR plan and instead get on with E Learning career.

As you have a technical background, I would urge you to develop those technical skill sets further up. So getting on a career with E learning is more advisable. You can probably take a shift to freelance jobs or work as a content developer for E Learning companies. Hope this helps. All the best.
