When you take one of our carefully-crafted instructional design programmes or courses, this is exactly what you'll get...
The latest in best practice
Get the most up-to-date thinking and best practices, developed and honed by top instructional design and course development experts from around the world.
The benefit of others' hard work
There are lots of clever people out there continually doing research into how we learn. We think you should benefit from their hard work, so you get the cream of their results and findings in our programme.
Their research doesn't solve every instructional problem you might face, but it does provide you with the basis for practical design principles. Principles you can easily apply to your work.
Help after the course
Because we pay attention to research, we know this for sure: you'll forget about 80% of what you learn after 3-4 weeks of the course finishing - unless there is reinforcement or additional practice.
For this reason, you get a range of follow-up activities to help you implement your learning most effectively. The really good news? Some of these activities are provided for free.
What you want when you want it
With our unique, flexible programmes available in several different delivery formats, (see below) you can get exactly the training you need, when you need it. Whether you are an individual learner, a small group or a larger team - you will find a learning option to suit you.
A great learning experience
We practice what we preach, so you get to experience first-hand the techniques and approaches you'll be learning about.
The results you need
If we do our job well, you succeed. So we love it when you can go off and create great courses. Courses that help embed learning, improve performance and increase results. In fact, nothing makes us happier - apart from a nice glass of wine on a Friday evening, that is!

We are really fascinated by the learning process and love teaching you about learning and instructional design.
Okay, we admit it, we are just a tiny bit nerdy in that respect.
But you don't have to be nerdy to appreciate the benefits of a really effective learning experience that also makes your learners happy.
