Custom learning program development, hassle free!

INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN

This is for you if your company already has a team working on your training, but you need an expert to ensure it meets quality expectations and deadlines. 

In this engagement, we jump in and act as an additional member of the team. We evaluate the project and learn whatever systems you’ve already got. Then we go where you need us most, filling any gaps in the workload, making recommendations to improve things at every turn, and pushing the project forward to a fast completion. 

INSTRUCTIONAL DEVELOPMENT

This is for you if you have a specific project in mind and you want us to do all the design and development (and localization if needed). 

This is a package project. You come to us with your topic, your content, and any parameters. We make strategic recommendations at the start and throughout. Your project may include eLearning, VILT, ILT, online activities, discussion boards, learning guides, handouts, performance support, etc. 

TRACI'S INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT SKILLS ARE THE BEST THAT I’VE SEEN IN A VERY LONG TIME.

Eileen Terrell, PMP, CPLP

"Traci's instructional design and eLearning development skills are the best that I’ve seen in a very long time. Traci, and her approach to training development, is creative and really focuses on engaging the learner in a way that is meaningful to the content and relatable. She builds relationships with clients in an authentic way, striving for a win-win relationship. She’s the full package – truly a pleasure to work with and would be valuable to any project in so many ways."

Q&A

HAVE SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW WE WORK?

  • How long does it take to create an eLearning module?

    • That depends on the project! On average, design and development take about 1-4 months, including three review cycles. The process can go faster for simple modules and topics.

  • What software do you use?

    • It depends on the project and the client. We start by looking at the desired functionality and deployment system specifications. We always choose tools that have a long history of strong user support to ensure that your module has the desired shelf life. We also look cost and ease of use if you'd like to maintain your own assets. 

  • Can you really just do it all?

    • We can do as much or as little of the project as you’d like! We will need your input along the way though to ensure everything is meeting expectations. eLearning development isn’t a one-time hand off. We will need to learn about your goals, culture, audience, content, and learning management systems to get started. This will also help us build relationships with any internal staff that are supporting the project.

  • Why don’t you offshore your development? Isn’t it cheaper?

    • In short, no. Offshoring can work really well in the right context. For us, we can usually complete the development faster than it would take to explain to someone who isn’t a part of our team. This also allows us to have more control over the quality of the end results.
