The Types of Learning Solutions We Offer

The Purpose

To briefly outline our capabilities and how they might meet specific customer needs, while also serving as an example of eLearning design and development.

The Design Approach

Sales should be about matching a solution to a client’s needs rather than simply telling a client what it is we do. This eLearning allows the client to select the problem that best reflects their business need. This design approach is important to effective learning as well, reflecting the needs of adult learners to actively engage in their learning and to make relevant choices.

Assessment-based Certificate Content Conversion

The Purpose

To transform an existing course to one that was more visually appealing and interactive in order to improve knowledge and retention.

The Design Approach

A new instructional analysis was conducted to better identify training goals and learner needs. The use of images along with content is cognitively more effective, so graphics were added. Learning and retention is also improved when the person is required to apply what they learn, so job-related activities were included in the training, allowing the learner to practice and get feedback. Even with improvements designed to promote learning and retention, it is not possible for the learner to remember everything back on the job. Accordingly, in addition to focusing the course on the most critical aspects of the work, part of the approach was to teach people how to use the resource manual effectively so that they would be more likely to do so when issues arose on the job.

Test Anxiety

The Purpose

The primary goal for this project was to help people who have some fear or nervousness when they take tests or examinations. This training needed to act as a tutorial and quick reference tool.

The Design Approach

To distract learners from their anxiety, a lighthearted and comical approach was used to deliver the information.

Software Tutorial – Sample Clip

The Purpose

The primary goal was to create user-friendly software training for individuals who may not be very confident utilizing a new software tool. This video is one of a series of clips used to reinforce a blended learning solution for this software.

The Design Approach

A show and tell approach was achieved utilizing narrated screen captures of the functions being performed in a step by step process. These videos were added into the tool under the appropriate “Help” section of the menu.

Human Resources Company Non-negotiable Employee Traits

The Purpose

The goal was to provide new hires information about different departments, through the company’s 6 non-negotiable traits. The piece needed to be informative, fast paced, and engaging.

The Design Approach

Education was presented to the learner using video in the style and format of vintage instructional videos from the 1950’s and 1960’s. The material was intertwined to not only educate the Learner as to the purpose and role of the departments but also how the 6 non-negotiable traits are important to each department’s practices and decision making.
