E - Learning Development - Our Process

We believe in making things simple for our clients, the primary way we achieve this is via the following steps:

Project Initiation and Analysis

The beginning of any eLearning project is crucial as it sets the tone and direction for the entire venture. The initial phase, known as the project kick-off, is key in aligning stakeholders to the project’s goals, scope, and expectations. This alignment fosters a collaborative spirit, crucial for the successful fruition of the project. Following the kick-off, the project moves into the Analysis stage, marking the start of the ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, Evaluation) model, a highly-regarded framework in the eLearning content development process. This phase is focused on understanding the learner’s needs and establishing clear learning objectives, laying a solid foundation for the phases that follow.

Included in this phase

  • In-depth research
  • Knowledge gaps

Course Design and Storyboarding

Having a clear understanding of the learners’ needs makes the transition into the Design phase smooth. The insights from the Analysis phase are utilized to draft a blueprint that outlines the learning journey. A key tool used in this phase is Storyboarding, serving as a visual map of the course flow, detailing the sequence of content, interactions, and assessments. This visualization tool not only aids in obtaining client approval but also ensures that all stakeholders share a unified vision of the course’s structure and flow, reducing the likelihood of major revisions later on.

Client Review of Storyboard

An integral step within the Course Design and Storyboarding phase is the client review of the storyboard. This step involves presenting the storyboard to the client for their feedback and approval. It ensures that the course design aligns with the client’s expectations and objectives, facilitating a shared understanding of the course structure, content flow, and interactive elements before progressing to the Production phase. Obtaining client approval on the storyboard fosters a collaborative approach, ensuring any necessary adjustments are made early on, thereby streamlining the subsequent phases of the eLearning content development process.

Included in this phase

  • Testing. Content Test that 100% of Knowledge gaps have been covered

Production and Development

The Production phase is where the course blueprint transforms into engaging eLearning content. This phase encompasses a range of tasks such as scriptwriting, creating graphics and animations, and integrating interactive elements to enhance learner engagement. Following this, the project moves into the Development stage of the ADDIE model. Here, the instructional materials are assembled, and the eLearning course begins to take shape. The collaboration between instructional designers and developers is crucial in this phase to ensure the alignment of the course with the learning objectives.

Included in this phase

  • Script Writing | Graphic design | Pre - testing.

Quality Assurance and Testing

Quality Assurance (QA) and Testing are crucial phases ensuring the eLearning content is free from technical glitches and aligns with the predetermined learning objectives. Systematic testing identifies and corrects any discrepancies before the course reaches the learners. An integral part of this phase is the beta delivery, where a nearly finalized version of the course is shared with a select group of users for initial feedback. The insights obtained from this phase are instrumental in fine-tuning the course.

Included in this phase

  • Focus group testing and Fine tuning

Client Review and Revisions

The Client Review phase is a juncture where clients review the course and provide their invaluable feedback, pivotal for aligning the course with the business and learning objectives. The subsequent Revisions phase is dedicated to addressing client feedback by making the necessary adjustments to the eLearning content, ensuring it meets the desired quality standards.

Included in this phase

  • Final testing of content and 100% knowledge gaps covered

Going Live and Evaluation

The Going Live phase signifies the course’s transition from development to a live platform. Post-deployment, the Evaluation stage of the ADDIE model kicks in, focusing on assessing the effectiveness of the eLearning content. This evaluation covers analyzing key metrics such as completion rates and gathering feedback from learners to measure the course’s impact. This phase isn’t merely a culmination but a stepping stone for continuous improvement, providing invaluable insights for future eLearning projects.

Included in this phase

  • Testing. Our projects always have 100% test coverage, which would be impressive if our tests weren’t as porous as a sieve.

Our values - Balancing reliability and innovation

We strive to stay at the forefront of emerging trends and technologies, while completely ignoring them and forking that old Rails project we feel comfortable using. We stand by our core values to justify that decision.

  • Meticulous. The first part of any partnership is getting our designer to put your logo in our template. The second step is getting them to do the colors.
  • Efficient. We pride ourselves on never missing a deadline which is easy because most of the work was done years ago.
  • Adaptable. Every business has unique needs and our greatest challenge is shoe-horning those needs into something we already built.
  • Honest. We are transparent about all of our processes, banking on the simple fact our clients never actually read anything.
  • Loyal. We foster long-term relationships with our clients that go beyond just delivering a product, allowing us to invoice them for decades.
  • Innovative. The technological landscape is always evolving and so are we. We are constantly on the lookout for new open source projects to clone.
