eLearning and Training Content Development

We create customized courseware designed to engage your target audience and fulfill your business objectives in a timely, cost-effective manner.

Is it time to engage a courseware development partner?

  • Do you need to train your customers and/or employees on a new product or service?
  • Do you wish you had time to create a comprehensive training program for your employees?
  • Are you interested in incorporating eLearning into your training programs?
  • Do you require On-the-Job Training or Instructor-Led Training for your employees?
  • Do you need to move your Instructor-Led Training to an Online Training program?


eLearning provides on-demand training to any location with an Internet connection. With the right planning and an interactive and engaging design, it can, in many cases, be just as effective as face-to-face training. eLearning is a great option for learners in multiple locations with busy schedules. eLearning works best for information that does not need frequent updating.

Multiple development tools and digital teaching devices are available for use with eLearning, such as animations, audio voiceover explanations, activities that require the user to make decisions and receive feedback, and embedded videos. Even though it can be a larger up-front investment than other types of training (such as classroom training), eLearning pays off over time as you can train learners anytime, anyplace, without the recurring expense of instructor time.

Instructor-Led Training

The most traditional type of instruction is in-person, face-to-face classroom training, led by a trainer who relies on lectures, followed by test questions to measure comprehension. However, experience has taught us that increased interaction, including discussions, problem-solving tasks, case studies, and hands-on practice, will yield better outcomes. In a well-designed course, learners are immersed in the training experience as they are asked not only to absorb but also to perform, along with trainers who may or may not be experts in the subject matter.

This type of training is typically referred to as “Instructor-Led Training” (ILT) or “Facilitator-Led Training.”

Face-to-face, synchronous training is recommended for training engagements that require a high amount of trainer/trainee interaction, such as complex procedures that require on-site demonstration and practice, abstract skills that benefit from immediate feedback and discussion, or training multiple new employees to promote team-building.

On-the-Job Training

Structured on-the-job training (OJT) is especially effective for companies that need to ramp up new team members quickly and who have strong trainers to teach new employees, and where people can come onsite to a central location for the training. OJT gives learners an opportunity to observe their trainers in their regular work environment, which yields powerful training results.

Often, OJT is unstructured and can produce inconsistent results. Learners receive different levels of training based on the trainer, the questions the learner asks, the number of distractions, and the current company environment. However, by implementing structured OJT with training guides, job aids, assessments, and other concrete materials, you can achieve more consistent results and better-trained employees.

Self-Paced Training

With self-paced training, learners receive a training manual that they read and work through on their own to learn about a specific topic. Learners answer questions throughout each topic to help them consider and apply the concepts and then complete a series of questions at the end of each section to validate their knowledge.

This training style can be effective for material that learners need to reference frequently and for straightforward procedures. This method is particularly effective when combined with other types of training. Learners can read through the material and practice the procedures directly in their work environments at their own pace.

Distance Learning

Distance learning is where learners and facilitators in different locations connect over the Internet in live sessions. Distance learning combines the personal interaction of classroom training with some of the convenience of eLearning, making it an excellent option when learners are in different locations but need immediate feedback and live explanations.

Although it does not provide the same level of personal interaction as classroom training, distance learning does allow for discussion, group work, and synchronous feedback, combining many of the benefits of classroom training and eLearning.

How we set the stage for success

Engage Contiem as your training partner and we will work with you to:

  • Define your target audience – their needs, requirements, and constraints
  • Identify learning objectives and define measures of success
  • Collect the available content and information resources
  • Determine what learning method best suits your specific requirements

This analysis gives us the detail necessary to tailor training specifically for your needs, which encourages higher knowledge retention rates and gets your people up to speed more quickly. We develop your training and courseware solutions beyond what the average training and development company can deliver.

Developing effective training material

Effective training materials supplement class time.

We develop training materials according to the learners. We enable them to focus on the relevant and helpful information presented in class, avoid information overload, and have reference materials for use when applying the new concepts and procedures in their jobs.

Some of the training materials we produce are:

  • Instructor Manuals and Participant Guides
  • Proficiency Tests
  • Simulations
  • Reference Materials

Classroom to Online Learning

As more people are working from home, Online Training, also known as eLearning, is becoming more important. Contiem can adapt your existing classroom training materials to create effective eLearning.
