Our instructional design experts are deeply knowledgeable when it comes to designing curricula, content, and testing methods that are highly engaging, easy to retain, and adhere to adult learning principles and best practices. Using elements like rich design, gamification, and real-world scenarios, they help learners apply what they learn to their daily tasks and interactions.
Every course they design undergoes a rigorous quality assurance process to ensure that all content is accurate and error-free. Once the courses are live and learner-facing, we also employ a tiered, bilingual learner support team to help students every step of the way.
