Our background in education helps us to understand the learning process and learner's needs and respond effectively to these.

In addition we provide instructional design expertise to higher education institutions that wish to offer either e-learning courses or e-books to their students. Through The Wordhouse we have worked with Sunderland University and Edexcel on a wide variety of courses from consumer psychology and e-marketing strategy to international banking and understanding the business environment. In association with Echelon Learning we have worked with University of West London to design an e-learning course on Managing People in Practice. We also work in association with Training Well Limited, specialists in developing programmes for tablets and mobile devices using Articulate Storyline and HTML5.
