Who We Are
We are a team of designers, educators, artists and programmers. We design learning experiences that provide people with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to perform at their best.

What We Do
Since 2000, we have developed interactive learning experiences to teach professional skills to our clients’ learners in a wide range of industries and subject areas. Our suite of services include:

  • E-learning courses
  • Live training events
  • Instructor-led training
  • Scenarios and simulations
  • Animated explainers
  • Facilitator guides
  • Web experiences
  • Game-based learning

NEW! We are developing a companion AI-based learning assistant for use with existing e-Learning. If you want your own custom eLearning course that leverages AI - we can do that too!

Our Approach
We believe that every project is unique, with its own needs. We offer an agile, consultative process to deliver you the best solution for your needs. We will work with your team to craft a workplan that maximizes collaboration and minimizes effort for your SMEs. At a high level, our projects follow the stages described here, with appropriate refinements to meet the needs of the specific project.


  • E-learning Courses

    We have been developing e-learning courses from the beginning. Providing your employees with learning they can take at their own pace, and in the comfort of their own workplace, saves travel dollars and ensures a consistent message is delivered. We develop courses in both Articulate Storyline for a traditional approach, as well in HTML/CSS/Javascript to deliver courses that behave more like web sites. All courses are exported in SCORM for implementation into any SCORM-compliant learning management system.


    If you require CPE, we have extensive experience in building courses that align with the Statement on Standards for CPE Programs set out by NASBA.

  • Animated Explainer Videos

    YouTube is often the first place people go when they want to learn something. Why? Video! When you watch a video, your brain treats it like entertainment while learning at the same time. Concepts learned in this way are likely to stick longer.


    We break complex subjects into short, animated explainers to help learners get what they need to know quickly. Watch three samples from recent projects below.

  • Custom Event Platform

    In today’s connected world, what better way to engage with your learning cohorts than through the web! We have a customizable event platform site that can be your one-stop portal for your learners. With our platform, you can promote your learning event, support participants during the event with direct access to activity materials and session descriptions, and even bring a fun element of gamification with a Leaderboard. Throughout the event, your participants can answer questions to test their knowledge, and earn points that update in real time.

  • Scenarios and Simulations

    Allowing your learners to apply what they learn in a simulated environment allows them a safe space to gain confidence in their new skills – and have fun doing it! Our instructional designers can design brief scenarios designed to focus on a single skill, or complex simulations that ask your learners to apply a combination of skills they have learned. From developing a multi-player online experience where learners get to build and manage their own consulting firm, to multi-day learning programs that use simulated consulting projects to apply new skills, let our team help you create a memorable experience.
