Oh  - forgot - I am not really getting the ratios related to time required that I think at least the first two sources refer to - i.e. the 22:1 for low-range, 43:1 for average, etc.

I just glanced at them. I believe they all pertain to creating course material in consultation with SMEs. If you are the SME, then you could probably knock some time off their estimates. How much, I don't know. I just like having some kind of departure point when I'm scoping something new. The more pins in the ground I start with, the more comfortable and confident I am sticking w/ my estimate because I can offer the client a basis for my quote, so they can't get away with thinking I just pulled it out of my A: drive.

FWIW, my experience in writing curriculum was that it generally took 5-7 hours of work per hour of class time. But, that was in a context that required zero research.
