Have an online learning need? Our team can effectively adapt your existing content into an online curriculum, or work with you to create the content from the ground up, using best-practice instructional-design techniques. Award-winning instructional and media designer Adele Sommers, Ph.D. ensures that every project achieves the very best possible results.

Use the links below to jump to the descriptions and samples of our current online learning products and services.
