Our approach

Step 1: Scoping

We begin the process by holding a number of sessions with you to fully understand your organisation, from the issues that you want to solve to the objectives you want to achieve. We’ll also begin collaborating on ideas for the look and feel of your training content, as well as the interactivity and the type of assessment.

Step 2: Instructional design

Now we start mapping out the visual, text, and audio elements, as well as the interactions and branching, of the learning narrative, working with you to ensure everything needed is included in each course. We always craft our learning experiences to ensure the maximum knowledge uptake and retention, as well as creating an engaging and compelling experience for your staff.

Step 3: Graphic design and build

We’re all about creating the most engaging and enjoyable experience for learners, ensuring knowledge uptake with visually stimulating courses. It’s also about creating a story that gives learners an understandable narrative from start to finish, brought to life with our storyline technology.

Step 4: Testing, release and deployment

Once we’ve created your training courses, we thoroughly test and check every inch to make sure all elements are working as intended. We also test on different devices and browsers, as well as on your chosen LMS. The final stage is also when we record any narration and add audio files before we work with you to deploy the training within your organisation.
