California Department of Transportation: eLearning Case Study

Online Interactive Management Training

California Department of Transportation


The California Department of Transportation (CalTrans) needed to develop project management training courses for employees statewide. The training had to be comprehensive, covering all aspects of using the project management application, hold the interest of the target audience, and be accessible 24 hours a day. CalTrans chose Contiem to create a comprehensive course comprised of multiple training modules.


Contiem developed an eLearning solution that includes multiple opportunities for interaction, such as “what if” scenarios, informal quizzes providing helpful hints, and pointers back to related content, audio voice-overs, and animated graphics. Interaction is an effective tool for reinforcing learning concepts while making the training more engaging.

The training is presented through a series of interesting articles, interviews, quizzes, and interactive exercises. Flash exercises provide students with an engaging experience that is not possible with traditional training videos or documentation. Recognizable themes and real-life scenarios help to draw in the learner and aid in problem-solving.


This eLearning course uses proven instructional design principles to deliver an eLearning experience that meets the needs of senior management employees statewide.

The courses encompass the CalTrans project management methodology within an interactive eLearning environment providing employees with multiple opportunities to solidify their knowledge on key topics. For CalTrans, a cost-effective solution was imperative and the web-based eLearning solution enabled them to cut employee travel time, budgets, and instructor expense.

Each training solution is unique and addresses specific needs, requirements, and a target audience. Contiem works with its clients to develop customized training solutions that are instructionally sound while meeting the clients’ core business objectives.
