ELearning Design

We have over 15 years of experience in custom elearning design and have developed over 200 elearning programs.


If you want a cookie-cutter training solution, there are lots of apps and programs to help you build your own courses.  Some of them are pretty good.  But that’s not what we do…

Our Content Came to Life Online

"I've been working with Kim for over two years to develop elearning courses for the Sport for Life online campus. Her assistance with the instructional design of our courses has resulted in interactive courses that make our content come to life online. Kim has listened to our vision for the courses and drawn from her wealth of experience to suggest creative solutions for interactive activities included within our courses. She is easy to communicate with and is timely with her responses to questions and delivery of documents. "
