Course Design & Development

We believe a course is more than the content of a syllabus. It’s about the experience. It’s what students gain, achieve, develop and master that will help them realise their success. Well-designed educational experiences drive completion and further students’ careers.

Is your course current, active and social? Dynamic and visual? Relevant and skill-based? Busy adult learners approach their education as the best means to an end, and our course design methodology takes this to heart.

Reverse Engineering the Course

Our instructional design team starts with the end in mind. First, we focus on identifiable student performance and competencies, and then determine the evidence of learning progress, such as acceptable forms of assessment. We partner with faculty to develop an overarching skills map for your university and individual programs, and integrate this into student learning plans.

The result? Students can see and demonstrate how every course is connected to their goal of skills mastery.

Faculty Support

The entire instructional design team – designers, developers and quality assurance specialists – partner with subject matter experts in various faculties to reenvision their course content for online delivery, using leading pedagogy and the latest in software technology.

Quality and Compliance

Quality and Compliance

Our specialist QA team ensures the quality of course content upholds the standards of your university, and your faculty has the final sign off on launch. Our instructional designers follow the Online Learning Consortium Quality Scorecard and the Quality Matters Program, and act as guardians of your university’s reputation.

Data-Informed Improvement

What’s measured can be improved, and our courses are designed for continuous measurement. We analyse high-level trends of completion alongside granular reporting of engagement and performance. Success advisors collect student feedback on the course, instructor and program as a whole, and share this information with our instructional design team to be integrated into future iterations of the course.

Adaptable Technology

Being a true partner means integrating with your existing technology suite, not locking you into a cookie-cutter technology system.

Our instructional design team and support staff are versed in several LMS, CMS, CRM and other technology solutions necessary to deliver a seamless online learning experience at scale.
