Our Keys to Success
We are committed to the following operating principles and professional attributes.
Our Competitive Edge
There are thousands of free-lance web developers that also offer to develop online courses. These people may have excellent technical skills, but they rarely have any formal training in instructional design. At ROI Learning we combine our knowledge of state-of-the-art digital technology with our formal and practical understanding of instructional design and learning delivery. This enables us to deliver programs that cost less and have more business impact.
The companies we work with seek external course development services for training that is required by government agencies or by the success of their businesses. In a challenging economy our clients are also seeking training solutions that can be delivered more cost-effectively than traditional, instructor-led classroom training. Please visit our Clients page to see short descriptions of each client's challenge, our solution, and the client's testimonial to the effectiveness of our services.
We also work with colleges and universities. These institutions of higher learning have large numbers of traditional, instructor-led courses, many of which are suitable for conversion to or augmentation by a distance learning approach. Since these institutions also have many in-house experts in instructional design, our emphasis in this sector is on 1) training their faculty in distance learning techniques and 2) providing resources for the rapid and professional conversion of existing courses.
