We implement design models (processes) that works well for the targeted learning environment, including forms of the ADDIE process, the Successive Approximation Method and the principles outlined in David Merrill’s First Principles of Instruction (Pebble in the Pond model).
We incorporate proven Instructional Design Strategies which help to streamline the development of subject content and develop course prototypes early in the process to ensure that we and our clients are all on the same page!

Benefits of Gamification in Online Learning
A careful combination of game design and game mechanics along with sound instructional design can result in engaging and effective learning experiences for your employees or customers.
For example, if you want to engage new employees during their onboarding training sessions, consider incorporating gamification elements that help create a positive environment for learning.
This approach works perfectly for your product information and customer training. (Remember that secret code or treasure chest scratch-off in the product information?)
If critical thinking and decision making is the goal then Game-based learning; incorporating scenarios and simulated exercises, create highly effective and engaging learning environments that increase learner retention and positive behavior outcomes.
