The Problem is.. 
You Don't Know What You Don't Know.

It's a difficult career situation when you've been assigned 
an eLearning project and you're NOT a training developer.

You feel like you can’t say NO,
but behind your smile, you're thinking: 
> How am I going to do this?
> Will I have time for my REAL job?

Then you get that sinking feeling...
with "what if" scenarios and you're on OVERLOAD. 
Houston, We Have a Problem!

Meet The Bootcamp Author

Hello, my name is V. Karen Miller   (Connect with me on LInkedin)
eMA Bootcamp is the essence of  25+ years “best practices”  working with clients to consistently deliver custom eLearning on-time and budget.

As a third-generation educator, I have a PASSION for teaching with technology. I’m a lucky person to turned my master’s degree  in Educational Technology from Texas A&M Uni into a lifetime career of eLearning project management skills.  (WHOOP)

In 2001, I founded Design2Train in The Woodlands, TX (just north of Houston). We are a full service instructional design agency, staffed with experienced instructional designers and content developers. We also create information products like eMA Bootcamp to teach others business critical skills.  Our primary training clients are corporations and federal agencies.

Staff Time and Production Costs

SAVE $$$ on Your First Project
GoodBye SWAG 

What are SWAG Bids? 
SWAG Bids = Silly Wild A$$ Guesses that artificially inflate the cost of most eLearning projects.

SWAG bids take advantage of inexperienced project managers who don’t know what they are doing and invariably cause a bunch of re-work.  To cover for extra hours agencies puff up bids by adding thousands of extra dollars to ensure they still make a profit.  Can you blame them?  But you don’t have to pay for SWAG, now that you know how to avoid it.

How do you stop SWAG Bids?  It’s easy… We recommend and show you how to start by using a two-contract system.  This is just working smarter, not harder. (It’s common sense in action.)  Put our Best Practices to work on your Day One. 

Follow the eMA Bootcamp System.
Save time, money, your weekends, your career, and your sanity.

Positive ROI (Return on Investment)

Follow the System

You can easily recapture a ROI of $5K-25K* even on your first project.
*Estimate based on 8-hr project, working smarter, avoiding re-work and SWAG bids.

Track Team Hours and Tasks
Use the Timeline & Milestones Excel spreadsheet to track tasks and activities. It’s color coded to match the Checklists.

Structured Yet Flexible
Unlike other programs, you don’t have to  buy specific course development tools or services.  By using this process, you learn what you need and you have the freedom to choose who to work with (internal staff and/or external agency staff) and use existing company tools and resources.   
eMA Bootcamp is structured yet flexible to meet your project needs. 

And Your ROI Just Improved…
Get a better ROI when you re-use the system on future projects. We call it, Rinse and Repeat. Once you and your team have the process down, it’s easy to repeat success over and over again on new projects. 

And Your Knowledge Doesn’t Disappear…
Let’s say you only deliver a project once a quarter. No worries!  You have all of the documentation and your process is sitting there ready-to-go. Get the band back together and get moving on that next project quickly and with confidence.
