WE LIVE AND BREATHE LEARNING MEDIA...
From cutting-edge 3D animation and Virtual Reality, to quick and agile video storytelling, learning media forms the backbone of what we do at Learn Interactive. Our unique "rapid response" production process enables us to adapt to changes and new challenges, publishing new and compelling media content at breathtaking speed.
In this way content remains fresh and updated, and learners feel that the learning is responding to their needs and concerns. Because it is!
The learners we serve have high expectations when it comes to digital media. Video needs to be beautifully produced and edited (with high-quality graphics where appropriate) and the selected technology platform needs to deliver content to any device quickly and easily, without glitches.
BEYOND VIDEO: INTERACTIVE CASE STUDY
Within a learning experience, video relies on context for its power: it needs to be directly related to the challenges a learner is facing. At Learn Interactive, we specialize in "learn-by-doing" experiences, where a learner can be immersed in a story, and choose their own path through a (simulated) situation that challenges their decision-making.
Below is a video demo of an online simulation, showing how an immersive, asynchronous simulation-type exercise ("choose your own adventure") can be deployed using a series of simple templates. This puts rich and deeply engaging learning experiences within reach, even on a tight budget.
The interaction (prepared for the University of Texas at Austin) is both SCORM and xAPI compliant, published to a Moodle-based LMS and designed to complement a portfolio of learning activities both online and offline.

"INSTANT ADVICE" VIDEO PRODUCTION
We use the term "instant advice" to describe high-quality video assets that are produced at very low cost—without the need for expensive camera equipment or lighting.
A great example is below: the interview was shot on an iPhone 7. The audio was captured using a consumer-quality microphone. We include this example to demonstrate how an "expert story" can be captured with minimal fuss and expense. With no rehearsal, we sat down with the subject (a leading UK-based sales consultant in this case) in his living room...and the stories flowed. (Note: The video is also enhanced with graphics from our brilliant animation team.)
We can, and have, replicated this technique with household-name enterprises to deliver extraordinary value for money invested.
Here is another example, in which Craig Laviano (CLO, Learn Interactive) re-caps a framework that's been explored in a previous live (synchronous) session. Videos of this type can be rapidly produced and circulated after live (synchronous) sessions. This kind of "refresher" follow-up can really help to consolidate learning and knowledge retention, keeping learners engaged and active.
LEARNER-CENTERED DESIGN (INCL. USER-GENERATED CONTENT)
A more complex instructional architecture is showcased in the video demo below. Learn Interactive co-founder Bruno Kavanagh walks you through a highly original learning solution designed to prepare human services professionals for work in residential homes for people with learning disabilities.
This is an example of truly "learner-centered" instructional design: the learners themselves are providing a significant portion of the content (including video) and critiquing and commenting on each other's contributions. This helps to create a community of practice where peers are learning from each other, as opposed to traditional top-down instruction.

CUSTOM SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT
Our India-based technology team is deeply experienced and skilled in technology integration with all leading "flavors" of Learning Management System (LMS) and Learning Experience Platform (LXP) including relevant standards (SCORM, xAPI etc.).
Where required, our technologists can specify and deliver made-to-measure customizations on front and back-end, including API development, SSO and mobile app development for both iOS and Android.
Every organization has unique needs in terms of the delivery of content. From a simple SCORM-compliant Learning Management System (LMS) to more complex, customized platforms, our experience and expertise can help ensure back-end technology efficiently serves the needs of both your admin staff and the end-users of the learning content.
The video below showcases an example of a ground-up technology project that includes both back-end management and front-end authoring support.
The video is also a great example of seamless workflow between product architects in the USA and an India-based team comprising project managers, software developers and creative graphics specialists.
This complex and ground-breaking project was delivered on time and under-budget, and has received wide usage from major corporations including Janssen (part of Johnson & Johnson) and other household-name corporations.
Also worth noting: The video itself (3D animation using Adobe After Effects CC) is an excellent example of outstanding low-cost creativity delivered by our wonderfully talented offshore (India-based) animation team!
