Choosing e-learning is a bit like buying a suit.
We all know that you can pick up a lovely suit straight off the rack, and it works for most people in most situations, but sometimes you need something a little more ‘fancy’. Sometimes, like a suit, e-learning needs just a little taking-in or turning-up.
We provide an increasing range of off-the-shelf e-learning courses contact us for more information. But, for those times when off-the-shelf just won’t do, you may wish to consider tailoring an off-the-shelf course or working with us to build your own course hosted either on our learning management system or yours.
All clients’ needs are different. Many of our e-learning customers ask us to customise our existing courses to create a perfectly tailored course that meets their needs.
Typically this option will see a client:
- use our existing compliance courses, but update the content to include their logos and branding
- customise our Learning Management System to include their logo, meaning that their learners know they are in the right place to take their training
However, even with a tailored course there are times that a quick nip and tuck isn’t what the customer wants, and they’d like to see a little more customisation. When this is the case we can:
- completely rework one of our compliance courses to meet specific requirements, we may add;
- customised imagery
- video footage to our existing courses
If a customised version of our off-the-shelf e-learning still won't meet your business objectives it may be time to consider a made to measure option.
The ultimate in e-learning courses. We work with our clients to provide a completely bespoke e-learning solution.
When our customers choose this option, we will work with them every step of the way, from initial concept meetings through to storyboarding, agreeing learning outcomes, creating content, programming the course and finally rolling out the course to your learners.
The API once set up will provide the user with a seamless link from your website through to the Highfield LMS to purchase your approved courses and you can be billed for usage at a pre-set price on a monthly basis or you can be set up on a pay as you go basis.
The default setting of an API is to create a new learner and gives them the course/s
Default can change to get course from pre-purchased bank of courses
A separate payment for one off bulk buys can also be applied to an API user who is building up their market
Packages of courses can be easily built and given to purchasers, especially large contract orders
What does it cost?
A standard information support pack for setting up API costs nothing/is currently free from Highfield. A non-standard support pack would be priced depending on what was needed to set up a bespoke integration. Branding options start at $2,000+GST although we can provide this branding work free of charge if you place an initial order for licences of $3,000+GST or more.
How would I use it?
If you preferred learners to access the training from your own website, we have web services available so could provide a landing page for your website where learners would log in and be taken through to our LMS where the training would be accessed.
What does it look like?
We have branding options available - the LMS could show your company logo and theme and a personalised web address. We can also add your logo to the certificates and an enrolment email. Branding options start at $2,000+GST although we can provide this branding work free of charge if you place an initial order for licences of $3,000+GST or more.
What is an e-commerce set up?
If you have an existing website but no e-commerce functionality, Highfield can provide a link (this can be embedded in to an iFrame within your website if desired) to the Highfield e-commerce landing page with custom price breaks available to you.
How does it work?
Highfield take payment from the customer when they order via the partially branded landing page and return the fee, minus Highfield’s pre-agreed licence cost, to you.
What does it cost?
The cost of development for this option is $4,000+GST including bespoke LMS branding. We can have this available for you in a 14-21 day time frame. The development required on your website is minimal.
Initial meeting - We will discuss your requirements and create a list of objectives for the project. We approach the project from the perspective of the business; what is the problem that needs to be solved; what are staff members doing incorrectly; what gaps in knowledge lead to these problems.
Proposal - Using the information obtained from the initial meeting we will create a detailed proposal. This will cover all of your objectives and how we plan to achieve each of them.
The proposal will include:
- an overview of your objectives
- your e-learning solution
- how your course will be constructed
- project timelines
- a detailed costing.
Secondary meeting - We will discuss the completion of the project and make any tweaks to the proposal that are required. We will commonly bring the subject matter expert to this meeting, unless you have your own, and will obtain all of the information that we need from you to achieve the goals of the project. We will schedule in any review meetings and regular update calls as necessary.
The project - Throughout the project we will keep in regular contact. Your project manager will always be a phone call or email away. Typically we will schedule regular catch-up to calls so that we can keep you up to date with the development process. Depending on the size of the project, there will be one or more review sessions during which your project manager will talk you through the project. This gives the opportunity for both parties to discuss their feedback and ideas to ensure that the end product meets or exceeds expectations.
What is SCORM?
For courses to sit on your own Learner Management System, we would provide a SCORM package.
The SCORM package is a zip file which contains all of the fields needed to run the e-learning, which is then installed onto your system.
How does it work?
The SCORM package is completely bespoke and we would provide a quote per course based on the number of learners who will be taking the course per annum and payment for using the SCORM is yearly.
How many licences do I need to purchase?
A minimum licence commitment of 500 licences per annum generally applies.
General minor support on configuration will be provided as part of the quote however, if your e-learning system was to prove unsuitable, a charge may be put in place to cover any additional support installing the programme. We would also include branding of the course (logo & colour scheme) to give the course a corporate feel.
Highfield will require yearly access to verify how many learners have used the course. Within the contract there will be a system compatibility and acceptance process which includes a maximum of 3 days’ development work completed off site by our development team to ensure seamless implementation.
