They were my first early-adopters and I’ve been working with them now since 2007, which is really rewarding. I’ll try something out and if it’s useful, I’ll find a way to work it into a project. Some people are afraid of change and see the fearful side of it, but I see only the opportunity. I’m activated by where we can go and what we can do. And I see digital learning as a way to ‘level the playing field’ and ensure that all persons have access to education, regardless of their socio-economic status or geographic location.
I got into eLearning before it was mainstream because I could see that would be the future of learning. Back then, few people even knew about my Instructional Designer credentials—it didn’t really matter to anyone, they just knew that I designed and delivered great training. Now those credentials really matter because as an eLearning creator you don’t get very far if you don’t know how to structure a course – you can’t “wing it” like some do in the live classroom setting
You have to find interesting ways to engage the learners, so that they really learn. In our courses we always design the avatar of the target learner, so that members of that organization can see themselves in the course characters and say, “That’s me!” Everything is created with that main learner in mind. It’s these kinds of details that set our work apart – we approach every project with the skills on an Instructional Designer, the creativity of a Graphic Artist and the digital literacy skills of an IT Professional.
We have very high standards of innovation and interactivity, which is why we work with clients who are looking for a long-term partner to take their training and education programs and move with them into the future.
