About our Courses
How our elearning courses work
Specialist online video production methods ensure extremely fast, high-quality streaming. A combination of the presenter, animations and quiz-style questions keeps learners interested and stimulated.
Our content and Learning Management System (LMS) are constructed to provide a set of multiple-choice questions after each module. These help embed the learning in trainees’ memories and allow managers to check the training has been completed and understood.
When a candidate successfully completes a course, they will automatically receive a system-generated certificate.
Training managers can also use our course management portal to keep records and track learner progress.
A powerful combination of embedded presenters, live video footage and animated graphics immediately grabs learner interest and holds attention.
Face-to-face eye contact builds trust, triggers emotion and delivers a memorable tone and style, while communicating the essence of the learning content.
The overall result is increased learner engagement and the creation of a lasting, positive impression.
Your Learning Management System
The customer dashboard is where the candidates go to do the training. Learning manager can also use the dashboard to manage any number of candidates. It’s mobile-responsive and can deliver extensive reports. If needed, it will work side-by-side with an existing LMS, via an open API.
Checking on Learning
The candidate-facing areas are constructed so that a set of multiple-choice questions are introduced after each module. Following successful completion of a course, candidates will receive a system-generated certificate.
The question sections of our courses use a variety of techniques.
For example, in the Fire Safety courses, candidates are presented with certain types of fire and have to select the image of the appropriate extinguisher.
We also make use of various exam canvasses to suit all exam types and random question banks. We can feature a wide variety of online questions, including, multiple-choice, drag and drop, surveys, quizzes, answers in free-text exams and assignments.

Yes. Our courses are built with responsive designs, so they can adapt to multiple device sizes, whether it’s desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet.
This is particularly useful for learners who are ‘on the go’, or who work in environments where desktop computers are not available.
A recent forecast stated that around 80 per cent of the world’s population (that’s over 6 billion people) are now smartphone users. So it’s no surprise to discover that mobile phones are widely used in training – a trend that is certain to grow significantly in the future.
Why are learners more motivated and engaged in mobile learning courses?
Well, for a start, mobile learning eliminates the need for learning to happen at a particular time and place, or on a specific device.
Mobile learning seamlessly integrates into peoples’ daily routines, making it easier for them to stay on track with the courses, resulting in increased course completion and knowledge retention.
Learners can also use mobile courses to recall information while at work, so they can perform their job better. For example, when someone is about to perform a task, or check a piece of machinery, or give a product sales pitch, they can quickly check their mobile phone and run a short course to help them brush up on the key facts.
