Challenge

Improve learner experience with better course materials and more interactivity.

Client

Alberta Association of Recreation Facility Professionals (AARFP) provide excellence in training and professional development for people who operate recreation facilities.

Kim Snell, the Executive Director, described two challenges faced by students in their training program. “Because materials aren’t consistent in their formatting and layout, learning the content is more of a challenge and takes more time.”

The first challenge was to improve the consistency and professionalization of their paper materials.

Secondly, although a small association, Kim believed that stepping out to produce one online course as a pilot would address three key goals:

  1. Improve access to a broader market
  2. Improve interactivity
  3. Improve the instructional design of the content

Solution

BaseCorp’s instructional and graphic design team got to work reviewing and enhancing the simplicity and consistency of the layout, streamlining the clarity of the learning objectives for the materials while maintaining the accuracy of the content.

As well, BaseCorp designed the layout and developed the interactive online course, and facilitated the business transaction process whereby AARFP clients would access, register, and receive certification for their training.

Result

Kim and her team were pleased with the results, and are gathering statistics on course demand and learning comprehension.

Challenge

How do you keep childrens' attention to teach them the science of sun-safety? This was the challenge faced by the Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation (CSCF). They needed to change their content into an interactive online, mobile-accessible program for students across Canada from grades 5-12. As well, teachers needed to have a tool to schedule live presentations and students needed a registration process that was simple but captured the data needed to satisfy funding stakeholders.

Client

CSCF was founded in 2002. In the winter of 2010 the CSCF created a comprehensive Strategic Plan to build capacity to take its education and awareness programs across Canada. It worked with BaseCorp Learning Group to implement national programs for both education and awareness to over 175,000 youth.

Solution

BaseCorp’s consulting team of project and IT managers met with Leona and Colleen to establish the parameters of the program, and set to work creating the instructional and media design for two Storyline courses. The delivery of the courses had to coincide with the launch of a new website, so BaseCorp designers worked with CSCF’s marketing firm to ensure branding consistency.

Result

A fun, avatar-facilitated product called the “Go Safe Sun Safety eLearning Classes,” accessible on iPad devices, is reaching thousands of students across Canada.
