Send through the project that you would like feedback on, one of our instructional designers will analyse and review your project prior to a 1 hour recorded online coaching session. They will debrief you on what they found and provide you with detailed suggestions for improvement.
On top of this, we have spent countless hours checking and completing quality assurance checks on these solutions. We have worked with a diverse range of clients and over time have developed a tried and true method for delivering effective and high quality eLearning (not our biased opinion, this is what our clients tell us). We have a strong passion for supporting others in the industry and are inspired to support you (our industry friends) to be the best that you can be through one-on-one support for your projects.

If I don’t feel you help me, will I get my money back?
No. We recommend you research us first and make sure we’re the right fit for you and the knowledge we have to share is credible in your opinion. You can experience us on YouTube, through our blogs and Instagram for example. We give all our tips and best practices away for free there so really you could just consume us there and apply it yourself without the need to pay for our services. If you do invest in this feedback opportunity, be clear on your expectations of us and what you need from us. We will try our best to achieve it but opinions are subjective and that is beyond our control.
If I don’t feel like I am connecting with the instructional designer or I am not gaining value, do I get my money back?
No. As per the above, you can get a taste for our personalities and approaches online. Try before you buy there. ;)
What will you do with the recorded video?
We’ll provide it to you via a link and then delete it from our hard drive. It won’t be shared anywhere.
Can you help with other eLearning software other than Articulate?
We play mostly with Articulate 2/360, followed by Rise and Evolve. There are other people who will know the other tools better than us.
Can you support with Adobe Creative Cloud?
We can make recommendations about the tools and how they might benefit you. Although we use Illustrator and Photoshop daily, we recommend speaking to an expert that specialises in each of the tools.
Will you make changes to my project or only provide advice?
We’ll provide advice. We’ll use reflective practice and share tips and insights. You will need to apply our suggestions post our chat.
What if I'm working on a project that's confidential?
Share with us what you feel comfortable to share. We recommend you remove things like the logo or other identifiers if you are concerned. We can't protect from hackers and other risks associated with using the internet. Engage in this service at your own risk. We'll respect your privacy and it will be only used on our end for the purposes of the services you engage us for.
How quickly can I book in a session?
We need a minimum 24 hours to prepare for your first session. We want to add value and will have some homework to do prior. We're also dealing with global time zones.
