Each online learning need is different, some require robust content or curriculum development, others are training activities — how to do something.
Still other projects are compliance activities around particular topics with a need for baseline understanding.
Some projects require stringent reporting or tracking features on individual module components; others just need to be completed with a required level of understanding, a check-off. Each training need is different.
There are projects that require underlying support technology that tracks everything a learner does, stores assessment data and allows for complicated administrative oversight, others can be best supported in an off-the-shelf LMS.
Our goal is to help identify the best solution for you.

There are projects that need a level of sophistication or data tracking that can only be accomplished with a system that is custom developed. This involves creating custom web and backend environments that allow you to track and assess the users, and provide for dynamic content presentation based on user input.
For these projects, we can develop back-end database systems, connected to a smart, web front-end. The level of complexity is totally dependant on your needs. We can build administrative systems that allow you to manage, track and provide reports on access and usage. If you need it, we can build it.
Sometimes you just need to get a project done quickly. If the needs for data, tracking or assessments are lighter, then the project doesn't require a high level of design. In those cases we can develop using tools like Articulate to get projects done quickly, but still provide for a rich user experience.
The nature of products like Articulate is that they allow relatively fast design that also can shorten the review process. Articulate can serve as the storyboard tool and allow us to let you preview as we develop, which creates a faster review cycle. This allows changes to be made much more quickly. These projects can still have a high level of design, and look and feel professional; there are just fewer options for tracking and reporting.
Articulate projects can be designed so that you can revise content yourself once the project is complete. Staff would need to be trained on the use of Articulate, but you could potentially do light maintenance on the projects.
For those cases where you want to manage the content yourself and do not need a great deal of customization, then the use of a learning management system (LMS) is the right choice. We can set up a LMS and work with you to design, develop and deploy your project quickly. This gives you the opportunity to control content revision yourself after launch.
LMS's do limit the way content is laid out; you lose the customization that you have with a custom-built or an Articulate project. For some projects you do not need the instructional flow possible with a custom-built or an Articulate project, and the option to have total control over the content and revisions without the aid of a developer makes this the best choice.
