Illumen has produced hundreds of learning modules, all branded to our client’s corporate identity, all developed to educate and engage the learner, all using the technology required to work seamlessly in their environments, and all within time and budget. We create the course curriculum and the content using custom or off-the-shelf software. These courses are often developed for sales training, professional education, patient education, and customer education. Common development includes:
  • Custom HTML, HTML5, and Flash training modules
  • Articulate Presenter, Storyline, Adobe Captivate, and Lectora based training modules
  • SCORM/AICC compliance
  • Instructional design, script writing, and storyboard development
  • Cross platform/mobile app development (PC/Mac/iOS/Android)
  • Training simulations & games
  • Video and 3D animation development
  • Info graphics & analytics

Training Examples

Warehouse Employee Training
Food and Drink Training
Surgeon and Sales Rep Training
Documentation Compliance Training

Medical Device Care and Use Training

Types of Training

You may need a training module to teach managers how to manage employees and fill out/interpret paperwork or stay abreast of updated guidelines and procedures, a sales calculator that visually shows cost savings using your product over a competitors, or maybe even a 3D animation of how your product works and outshines the competition. Some of the types of training we develop for is:
  • Safety training
  • CME and CE accreditation
  • Education preparation training
  • Process training

Our Process

Illumen’s process for developing learning modules is really about how our clients, subject matter experts, instructional designers, creative directors, testers, and of course learners, interact with each other throughout the development process. We have determined the following to be our general process for developing powerful learning modules:

1. Need Define the need for the module.
2. Plan You know why, now focus on how this module will be put together.
3. Content The subject matter expert and instructional designer begin to develop content.
4. Experience As the content comes together, the creative director defines the user experience with the team.
5. Develop The developers bring the content to life screen by screen.
6. validate Quality assurance and pilot testing check the project against the plan and need.
7. Launch With everything in check, the project launches and the learners learn.
8. Future As time moves on, changes and updates are made as needed, continuing the process over.

 

Technology

Every project has different technical requirements. PCs, Tablets, and mobile phones all have different methods of viewing information. Learning Management Systems (LMS) have different requirements as well, such as SCORM or AICC compliance, Flash or HTML/HTML5 restrictions. Some client’s don’t have an LMS in place and don’t need one. Sometimes the eLearning or eMarting project needs to run on a kiosk during a trade show. As you can imagine, technology is an important element to the availability of a learning module, how the audience interacts with the information, and how administrators review analytics.

Levels of Interactivity

Within eLearning there is a general guide to the levels of interaction a project contains. Each level increases the amount of engagement, interaction, and complexity. The level is often determined by the audience, nature of the content, importance of user application of the content, and the budget.

Level 1 – Passive Interaction Screen by screen or video with no real interaction
Level 2 – Limited Interaction Simple interactions such as multiple choice and popup information
Level 3 – Moderate Interaction More complex interactions such as drag and drop. Interaction has more logic and visuals
Level 4 – Simulation or Realtime Interaction Highest level of interaction using complex, logic based simulations, games, or tools using high visuals, often putting a user in an environment

 

Knowledge Checks, Assessments, and Surveys

There are many ways to document and display in measurable terms, the understanding, knowledge, skills, and attitudes of information, processes, and concepts.

Knowledge Checks
Knowledge Checks allow learners the ability to test themselves. How well do they know the material? How well can they apply the material? Do they know enough to continue on through the course? Knowledge checks can be delivered as multiple choice and fill in the blank tests, ordering metrics, drag and drop, interactive simulations, games, and advanced decision tree methods.
Assessments
Assessments allow a facilitator the ability to understand how well a learner comprehends and applies the information they have learned. This data can be gathered and stored. While many assessments are multiple choice, true and false, or fill in the blank, like knowledge checks, simulations and a wide variety of other methods can be used to assess they learner. Assessment questions can be randomized to reduce answer memorization and cheating.

Surveys
Surveys are a great way for a facilitator or administrator to understand what a learner thinks of the content, how it is presented, how they feel they comprehended it, and methods of improvement. Surveys are sometimes placed after an assessment but can be provided to the learner in many ways. The survey data is used to vet the course against the objectives, check for development errors, and find potential future upgrades to the material.

 

Languages and Culture

Illumen often needs to create learning modules that are diverse, covering both languages and cultures. We have created modules in many languages and can work with you to have learning content translated and reviewed for cultural adjustments.
