Pre-Instructional Design Services
Today more than ever executives have been mandated to strategically align their training initiatives with their
business goals and objectives. However, many training departments lack the resources or expertise to fulfill this
mandate in a timely fashion. In recognition of this, KTCube has created two services specifically designed to support
those corporations who have no strategic plans or those who would like to reevaluate their current learning strategies.
KTCube will help you develop a strategic plan, which aligns your training initiatives with your corporation's business goals and objectives.
During this process we will identify areas that impact workplace performance, map existing competencies, identify
processes which require streamlining, evaluate the return on investment of your current training initiatives, and recommend
programs, courses, and tools to close existing knowledge and skills gaps.
Learning Strategy Evaluation
Can your current training initiatives and infrastructure support the goals and objectives established by your strategic
plan? This service will help you evaluate your current learning strategy, training initiatives, I.T. infrastructure,
program content, and processes for their ability to achieve the required business goals and objectives defined by your strategic plan.
Instructional Design Services
KTCube has been developing courseware, training support tools, and learning management systems for more than
17 years. During this time we have authored more than 200,000 pages of content, custom-designed 5 web enabled e-Learning Management
Systems from the ground up, performed over 200 assessments, and delivered more than 3,500 courses across virtually every industry
sector. That depth and breadth of experience, expertise, and know-how now becomes your competitive advantage for all your instructional design requirements.
Our Development Process
Delivering high-quality multimedia e-learning courses on time and on budget is something we know a lot about. Our
development methods are designed to reduce project risk and ensure that our client's business objectives and
expectations are exceeded. The following six-step process outlines how we develop, build, and maintain your e-learning courses.
Step 1 - Plan
Prior to initiating any course development activities a project plan must be created to ensure success. Tasks within this
plan would include but are not limited to establishing performance criteria, business objectives, content reviews,
needs assessments, cost-benefit analysis, architecture development strategies, and authoring tool selection.
Step 2 - Design
The design phase identifies how the course will flow from start to finish, the type of navigational controls used, how
the learner will interact with the course, voice scripts, reporting requirements, hardware/software design specifications,
and types of graphics used. It is also at this stage where detailed storyboards are developed and prototypes build.
Step 3 - Creation
After the design specifications have been finalized our instructional designers, graphic artists, animators, and sound
technicians will begin bringing your course to life. This stage also encompasses the development of support
materials including user documentation, marketing materials, instructor/student guides, and any client specific software required.
Step 4 - Evaluation and Acceptance
This phase of the development process evaluates what we have produced against the clients design specifications. During
this process, KTCube utilizes a comprehensive quality management system known as Signals. This
system is defined by written processes, performance criteria, operational standards, and job specific responsibilities
all of which are designed to ensure the quality of the products we produce. An acceptance document is then prepared for sign off by the
client once items such as color variations, graphics positioning, sound quality, screen transitions, and
animation flows are verified.
Step 5 - Implementation
The implementation phase is actually divided into two. The first phase ensures that any hardware used is properly configured,
support personnel are trained, and any operational documentation used is thoroughly tested. The second phase ensures
any e-learning courses are properly installed, perform to design specifications, and operational criteria.
Step 6 - Support
This phase establishes who will support the e-learning courses, its hardware, and any software required to run the application.
In addition, this phase will also define operational performance standards, how course updates are installed, and
long-term support requirements.
