The Natural Step decided to offer their successful workshop on sustainability in an online format to increase its availability. TM NewMedia was contracted to adapt the workshop materials to an asynchronous eLearning course. In order to deliver the course, a learning management system was required. As well, a system was created to allow users to purchase and access the course.
Working closely with workshop providers, our instructional designer wrote a storyboard indicating the course structure, key concepts, objectives, and learning activities. These were further expanded to provide details on text, images, narration, and animations to be used in the course. On approval of the storyboards, the narration was recorded and the course was built in Flash. A Moodle learning management system was customized to allow for multi-organizational management of access to the course.
- Four-hour Flash-based course incorporating animations, interactive activities, and providing extensive resources.
- Animations synchronized to narration.
- Moodle learning management system with separate organization management interface allowing for multiple organizations to manage their licenses for use of the course.
