Development Process

 
Creating high-quality eLearning Solutions needs a well-planned approach and process. MVS will collaborate with the Client to determine the full scope of the project and propose a solution. The team at MVS uses a simple and effective methodology of 4-P Stage for eLearning Development Life-Cycle.

PROPOSE
The Project Manager at MVS will organize an internal meeting and discuss the individual responsibilities involved in the project and keep a clear focus on the Client demands and the Project Scope.
SCOPE UNDERSTANDING
EFFORT & ESTIMATION
CONTRACT / AGREEMENT

Scope Understanding
In this stage MVS will identify the client’s current needs and propose a perfect solution meeting the client’s requirement. MVS will prepare a Refined-Scope-Document (RSD) based on the discussion/inputs/initial scope provided by the client. The Refined Scope Document will have more detailed information about the client’s scope and our approach towards meeting the requirement. If there is any change needed in the Refined Scope Document, MVS will collaborate with the Client and make the necessary changes and prepare a final version. This stage will act as a basic platform for both MVS and the client.

At the end of this stage, MVS will have a thorough understanding of the client requirements and move forward to the second stage.
Effort & Estimation
Based on the Refined-Scope-Document (RSD), MVS will now prepare a PROPOSAL document having the timeline and cost-estimation for the overall completion of the project. The effort and estimation will be calculated purely based on the task involved and the resources required for the completion of the project.

The PROPOSAL will be prepared inline with the clients demand and will cover the below details

1.Development Platform
2.Software utilization
3.Resources(Internal/External)
4.Break-up Cost
5.Mile-Stone Deliverables
Contract / Agreement
Upon acceptance of the PROPOSAL, either the client or MVS can prepare the mutual agreement document, which will be signed by both the parties. The agreement will have the general agreement terms and will cover the following elements

1.Project scope
2.Budget
3.Timeline , and
4.Payment terms.
Prototype
If the client requirement is huge or if the Top-Management from the client needs a pilot to be developed prior to kick-start of the project, MVS will produce a pilot having few screens/pages of the content and showcase the developed output to the client and seek their review comments. If the development timeline for the prototype is within the range of 3 working days then MVS can make it at Free-Of-Cost beyond that timeline it will be on an agreed cost. If there is any standard formats which is already in practice at the client-end we can follow those standards and it should be clearly specified in the scope defining stage.
Project Plan
Project Manager at MVS will prepare a Project Plan based on the refine-scope-document. This project plan will provide the client a more detailed view about the task involved in the development. The project plan will have the mile-stone deliverables with dates and client-side approval dates, this plan will help client to be available during the specified dates. It also contains the technical requirements of the project, especially the software, tools and the platform on which the development will takes place and other important details which client should be aware of.

This project plan will be made available to all the Team members at MVS and to the appointed people on the client-end. So, everyone working on the project will be aware of their responsibilities and communicate accordingly.
Project Plan Approval
Once the Project Plan is prepared, MVS will provide the same to the client for Final Approval. Any adjustment with regard to delivery dates or change in the scope or any technical requirement modification will be discussed and MVS will provide an updated Project Plan to the Client and get an approval from the Client to proceed further.
Content Formation
The content team will prepare all the necessary raw content required for the project and discuss with the Subject-Matter-Expert on the topic coverage and essential items for the topic. The Instructional Designers will prepare a formal storyboard document having all the instructions needed by a Graphic Designer, normally it will be in a form of PPT or Doc. The storyboard will have all the details like screen text, audio script, animation sequences, videos, assessment details, placement of images and any other important instruction to graphic designers.
Course Player
Graphic designer will prepare a Course Player / Course Template based on the information provided by the Instructional Designers (ID). The Course Player will have the navigational links required for the course. The developed course player will be send to the Client for approval. Any adjustments required by the client will be made and get the client approval for the course player / course template.
Media Creation
Here comes the major task of preparing various elements required by the course. The graphic designers will start preparing the screen elements, vector drawings, illustration, screen capturing as mentioned in the storyboard document. The Programming team will prepare the simulations, assessments or game specified in the storyboard. All the screen elements needed by the course will be development in this stage. Audio-Editor at MVS will provide the client with Voice-Talent samples for voice-recordings, according to the client-choice Audio-Editor will go ahead and record the Voice and provide the audio files to the Graphic Design Team to integrate them as per the storyboard. The same principle will be carried for the video production.
ALPHA Release
Based on the Refined-Scope-Document (RSD), MVS will now prepare a PROPOSAL document having the timeline and cost-estimation for the overall completion of the project. The effort and estimation will be calculated purely based on the task involved and the resources required for the completion of the project.

The PROPOSAL will be prepared inline with the clients demand and will cover the below details

1.Development Platform
2.Software utilization
3.Resources(Internal/External)
4.Break-up Cost
5.Mile-Stone Deliverables
BETA Release
MVS will implement the client-review comments specified by Client in the Alpha release. Any major changes in the Flow-Process or change of animation or any re-recording of audio will be billed separately. MVS will produce the BETA Release to the client for final approval and package.
Completion
MVS delivers all the versions of the files to the Client including a working copy of the Beta Release. Upon receiving the files, the Client needs to send MVS a formal sign-off on the project.
