PROCESS
We follow the 7-steps Development Process:
  • Understanding Client's Requirements
  • Drawing up the Project Plan
  • Defining Tasks for the Approved Project
  • Developing the Prototype
  • Project Development
  • Quality Assurance & Testing
  • Deployment and Final Acceptance

Step 1: Understanding Client's Requirements For new entrants
  • Define objective of the project
  • Identify target audience and their existing education/skill base
  • Define their training needs
  • Suggest appropriate technologies that can be used
  • Assess costs involved and benefits accrued

For existing players
  • Define objective of the project
  • Determine target audience training needs
  • Ascertain whether the project will replace/supplement existing training methods
  • Appraise technology already deployed and scope for new technology
  • Assess costs involved and benefits accrued

Step 2: Drawing up the Project Plan
  • Specify course structure and content
  • Define technologies to be used
  • Outline time frame for completion of the project
  • Specify the cost structure
  • Submit Project Plan to the client for approval and finalization. Formal agreement is then signed with the client

Step 3: Defining Tasks for the approved project
  • Appointing a project leader to supervise progress and adhere to time schedules
  • Assigning specific tasks to each member of the team - research, content creation, content management, visualization, graphics design, programming, client servicing, documentation and regular backups
  • Defining directory structure, which helps in future modifications and facilitates project handling
  • Creating a Quality Assurance Test Plan
  • Developing content that includes - factual information, text, graphics, multimedia and audio-video components

Step 4: Developing the Prototype
  • Based on the approved project plan, a prototype is developed that takes into account:
  • Structure of storyboard that fulfills client requirements
  • Design, layout, look and feel of the project as per the needs of the target audience
  • Instructional design methodologies (Chicago Manual of Style, MSTP) to ensure best instructional value in a self-learning environment
  • User-friendly navigation structure
  • Quality standards

Step 5: Project Development
  • The final course structure content is developed by defining the lessons, headings, topics and sub-topics
  • Content accuracy, content coverage, logical flow of content and relevance to user groups are validated
  • Correctness and relevance of media elements - text, graphics, animations, audio, video etc. - to user groups is validated
  • The intermediate storyboards are sent to the client for review as required
  • Graphics are optimized for smallest file size while displaying clear and crisp images
  • Interactive content like animations, games etc. are developed
  • Different media elements are integrated
  • Tentative schedules are drawn up and adhered to
  • Regular backups are taken to avoid calamities

Step 6: Quality Assurance & Testing
  • We rigorously test the project as per the Quality Assurance Test Plan developed in step 3 to locate and eliminate errors
  • We test and check the project on the following parameters:
  • Content, navigation and proper use of different media elements
  • Whether the project is easily accessible to the end user through the internet and is compatible with all computers, even the older ones
  • Usability and user experience - (the course is run through a sample user population and the feedback is integrated)
  • Conformance to e-learning standards
  • Performance and stability across browsers and platforms

Step 7: Deployment and Final Acceptance
  • In case of WBT, the project is installed and deployed on the client's server using appropriate LMS (Learning Management System)
  • In case of CBT, the project is delivered on a CD-ROM
  • Final sign off from the client for the project
