Elearning design that facilitates learning

The Acolad Learning Content Services team is highly skilled and developing elearning design concepts that will suit a range of learning styles. We can create high-quality visuals, responsive drag-and-drop activities and interactive quizzes, fluid voiceover and audio effects, and stories and characters that appeal to learners' empathy – ensuring that all of your learners are actively engaged.

Let us know about your work context, and the problems you'd like your elearning to address. We can design realistic simulations that reflect your specific work environment and give your employees a chance to practise their newly learned skills in a supportive environment.

What does the process look like?

  1. Send training materials to Acolad's Learning Content Services team 
  2. Kick-off meeting, either virtual or face-to-face 
  3. Scriptwriter completes first draft of the script 
  4. Client reviews the script, and returns to the scriptwriter for revision 
  5. Scriptwriter revises the script and the final version is sent to the client for confirmation 
  6. Art Director submits visual concept to client 
  7. After confirmation from the client, the Learning Content Services team begins to compile the elearning demo 
  8. Elearning demo is sent to the client for review 
  9. After approval from the client, the Learning Content Services team finalizes the elearning and sends the SCORM package to the client. 


For projects involving video, custom animations, and other more complex add-ons, the project timeline will be longer. Learn more about our elearning services. 

Engage with gamification

In elearning, “gamification” means incorporating elements into the material that drive engagement, like:

  • achievements, levels, leaderboards
  • plot- or avatar-driven storytelling or simulations
  • social elements

These game-like features not only engage the student with the learning material, but also increase their motivation to learn – and their willingness to come back to the learning material again.

At Acolad, we're experienced at incorporating gamification into the design of elearning courses, on any topic.

We wanted to make an elearning course that would be fresh and different from our previous version, covering real-life scenarios for ethical decision-making. Acolad was very flexible in responding to our demands, and also their specialization in translation services was helpful in this project with 20 language versions.
