Our Approach to eLearning and Digital Learning

Online or eLearning is appealing to many organisations due to its reach, low resource requirements and flexibility in both time and place. Whilst the cost of producing eLearning programs may be more expensive that traditional classroom-based training, the delivery costs are often significantly lower. The cost of development can vary greatly, depending on the level of interactivity, complexity and customisation.

We use a variety of authoring tools to ensure our eLearning solutions meet our client’s needs.

The approach we take to eLearning depends on time, budget and the impact of the proposed program. For ease, we have three levels we use as a starting point.

  1. Rapid Development
  2. Adaptive
  3. Bespoke

Level 1: Rapid Development

When applying the Rapid Development Model, we use a rapid authoring tool to quickly and economically convert content, typically PPT to eLearning. If you require a basic program for low impact projects (e.g. to inform staff of a small change), but require the ability to track participant completion, this level may be suitable for your needs. With this eLearning development level we typically convert existing PPT content to eLearning and add a basic quiz or assessment. This makes it an efficient and economical solution. As this is the most basic of the three levels, interactive elements are limited.

Online Instructional Design Course Devices

Organisations have used this model to ensure employees have read and understood basic workplace policies, changes, procedures and documents, such as:

  • Safety notices/memos
  • Site inductions
  • Legislative or policy changes
  • Product updates

Indicative price: from $1,000 for a 30 minute course

See examples here.

Level 2: Adaptive

Our most popular level of eLearning, the Adaptive level, is used to produce attractive and engaging online learning solutions that incorporate multimedia and interactive elements to enrich the learner’s experience. At this level the courses adapt to any device in a similar way to a modern website. We recommend this solution for moderate impact projects or for those who desire to achieve a sleek modern user friendly course.

  • Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Workplace Health and Safety (WHS)
  • Workplace Privacy

Indicative price: From $4,000 for a 30 minute course

Level 3: Bespoke

For higher impact projects where budget and time allows, this solution builds on the Adaptive level by incorporating bespoke elements such as gamification, branching scenarios, infographics and customised videos. These features engage participants and can deepen their understanding by making strong, contextualised connections to the real world, enriching learning.


Working with our partners we develop customised videos to deliver or contextualise content visually. We also have used live actors and animation to simulate real to life scenarios or events.

Software Simulations

We create interactive software simulations to demonstrate key functions and operations. Interactivity capability allows users to practice the tasks, to ensure they have the understanding and skills to implement their learning in the workplace. View our Interactive Software Simulation Showcase here.

Customised infographics

Customised infographics help learners understand complex concepts using visual elements.

Blended Learning

For high impact projects, we suggest a blended solution that incorporates a variety of learning experiences. These do not necessarily need to be face-to-face facilitator-led workshops. Activities can be embedded throughout the program that require participants to research, investigate, work with a mentor/buddy, apply their learning in the workplace or complete a project, then report back to their online trainer or acknowledge they have completed the activities within the program. These strategies enhance the transfer of learning to the workplace, whilst maintaining the convenience of delivering the content no matter the time or place.

Indicative price: From $8,000 for a 30 minute course.
