Please note, we only work with approved SME’s on a Consultancy, Call-Off basis, and this is at our complete discretion. Nothing in our SME agreements with approved Consultants creates the relationship of employer of the Consultant or of any of Consultant’s officers, employees or sub-Consultants by Virtual College. Nothing in our SME agreements shall place a duty on Virtual College to provide approved Consultants with work or with work of a specific type.
Different kinds of SMEs
There are three different ways we work with our subject matter experts, with different levels of involvement.
A review subject matter expert checks and reviews Virtual College content at storyboard and final build stage, identifying and advising on areas that require amendment.
A content subject matter uses their in-depth knowledge of a topic to ensure that the content used in a course is up to date and accurate, making changes where appropriate.
An author SME completes the above activities, additionally processing the content and converting it into an author board containing the text for the course.
