How we work

Throughout the analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation stages of an elearning project,
we work with the trainee in mind.
This isn’t really ground-breaking, just common sense
(but there seems to be a lack of common sense in elearning these days,
as the end-user’s needs rarely feature in elearning strategy.

Expect us to ask you a lot of questions about your trainees and to reach out to them through online surveys.
Expect us to openly disagree with you when we feel that one of your decisions
is detrimental to the trainee’s experience.
In all likelihood, the alternatives we propose will delight you.

We choose to work on projects that inspire us from the moment we hear about them.
When we are energised by the client’s vision, we’re at our best.
Our clients then become colleagues, and our company and theirs become a team focused on learning results.
This is why clients come back to us again and again.
We are not a vendor, we are a strategic partner.
