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