    We’ve worked on many diverse small and large scale learning projects that have included the following products:

    • Animated videos using standard, or custom designed characters
    • Written manuals and tools such as checklists and DIY templates.
    • Webcasts and process/software explainers and walkthroughs
    • Whiteboard videos 
    • Infographic videos
    • Presenter videos with animations
    • Interviews and case studies
    • Scenario based actor videos
    • Instructional ‘how-to’ videos

    Your learning content can be delivered face-to-face; on-demand available 24/7; drip-fed over a series of days or weeks or instructor led.  You can choose one delivery method, or a blended learning approach. The blended learning approach helps to reinforce workshop delivery learnings. You can use this to either inform and educate prior to a workshop, or reinforce the learnings post-workshop.

    Your Not-for-Profit Guide has helped my organisation, Hunter Community Languages, to close the training and skills gap in the NSW Community Languages School Program, through providing us with much-needed quality, clear, accessible knowledge and skills in all areas of association governance.

    • Provide your community access to a comprehensive learning library and a regular series of webinars;
    • Develop or support a community of practice; 
    • Utilise an accessible online learning management system with statistics.

    Our delivery framework

    We’ll work with you through a 6 stage delivery framework which incorporates:

    1. Identifying: Your goals and your learners needs and pathways.
    2. Measuring: Defining the project’s measures of learning success.
    3. Planning: Results based planning focuses on how the learning content achieves the goals, needs and measures throughout the learning and post-learning touchpoints.
    4. Alignment: Develop goals based learning curriculums and scripts. 
    5. Crafting: Content is carefully crafted to connect new messages with the learner’s knowledge in familiar contexts.
    6. Translate: The post-learning plan focuses on reinforcing those new behaviours and translating learning into action.

    These methodologies are embedded across each stage of the above 6 stage proprietary delivery framework, we call IMPACT.

    Our delivery framework is underpinned with our proprietary learning pedagogy that considers 12 learning methodologies; human centred design; user experience mapping; accessibility and production methodologies to achieve learning that’s engaging and valuable for your learners.

    Why use our Learning Management System

    An LMS is used to deliver training and enhance the learning process.

    There are many benefits of using an LMS to deliver online training over simply adding content to a web page.

    An LMS streamlines the training process to: 

    • Facilitates students to self enrol in courses
    • Track students through courses
    • Records the student’s progress
    • Provide interactive elements like quizzes and assignments. 
    • Enables drip-fed lessons, linear or open course progression
    • Provide badges or certificates of achievement or completion

    Inside view of our Learning Management System

    Ways we can work together


    We can deliver your training in a number of ways, from traditional workshops supported with online learning, to 100% online.

    We’ll work with you to select the most appropriate delivery method for the subject matter and learner to achieve your objectives.

    Learning options

    We understand that not every organisation’s objectives and student learning types are the same.That’s why we offer a range of learning options for you, tailored to your needs. Not just the regular ‘cookie cutter’ options.

    Why not just do it yourself?

    These days most people have access to a video camera of some sort and it is relatively easy to upload videos to Youtube or embed them into a website page.

    But that is just the easy part. Handling the complexities of project management and technical know-how to operate a learning management system and technology may not be for you.

    Then there is:

    • Storyboarding
    • Instructional design
    • Scene changes
    • Reducing cognitive load
    • Providing images 
    • Adding interactives
    • File management
    • Setting milestones
    • Video platform settings
    • Accessibility including captioning, colour contrasting, font size and types etc.
    • Lighting
    • Sound
    • Video editing

    But then there’s: 

    • No accreditation
    • No checking certificates
    • No student reporting
