What is our process?

At Focus Ed, we practice open, two-way communication for the ultimate success of our clients. From building the project’s initial wireframe to delivering the finished product, we remain transparent and accessible to not only meet your expectations but also exceed them.

For every e-Learning project, Focus Ed sets milestones, maps content design, and generates visual landscapes that can be viewed on a dashboard. With Focus Ed, you can trust that your e-Learning systems will be delivered on point, on time, and on budget.

Analysis

Analysis

Each project starts with a comprehensive analysis of the client expectation along with discussions on the scope and sequence of project execution. These discussions take place during the kick off meeting. We then assign a point of contact who is responsible for managing the client expectations, milestone setting and the overall execution of the project deliverables at various stages. The point of contact is responsible to work with production and the client at the same pace.

At this stage we also undertake a comprehensive “Needs Analysis” on each module within the content area. It is key for us to understand the key learning outcomes, standards and the learning pedagogy proposed or recommended by us.

Design

Design

At the design stage, we start with a general outline. This helps us in defining a structure and also enables our User Interface and User Experience teams to collaborate and discuss various design elements that would best fit the need for establishing a fairly robust User Centered Design model of content navigation and layout in each frame.

We encourage our clients to view mockups of the design frameworks that our teams build and recommend at this stage. The stronger the design, the better the layout and implementation of the content on the structure.

If the project merits, we also undertake visual wire-framing of the design structure and layout. We also try and simulate the overall user experience at this stage.

Develop

Develop

After the teams have established a design structure that meets the client expectation, the development team starts developing the storyboards and transcripts for each module. Storyboards are developed under the guidance and strict control of the Instructional Designers.

The storyboards are then sent for review and necessary approval to the client to ensure they are mapped to the desired outcomes.

Once the storyboards are approved, the animators, graphic designers, visualizers and programmers start the development. All approved voice over transcripts are sent to our recording studio and the voice over artists record the voice over narration.

The Instructional Designer assigned to the project is responsible for managing the outcomes at each stage, and ensuring that the content being developed adheres to the design layout and the structure established by the design teams in the previous phase.

Review

Review

Prior to handing over any client deliverable, the QA team ensures that the content meets the required quality standards. The Internal quality audit focuses on technical and editorial checks that include bias reviews as well. The goal is to ensure alignment to prescribed standards, overall adherence to style sheet and prescribed guidelines and consistency of content layout.

Our goal is to reduce the iteration cycle at the pre-production levels. By ensuring adequate standardization at various levels, we minimize errors as the product moves through various development stages.

Deploy

Deploy

The project point of contact also ensures that the deliverables are handed over to the client at the appropriate point in time. Any change in schedule is promptly communicated to the client and changes are mutually signed off.

Delivery of all  final products conform to industry standards and benchmarks. We are also responsible for integrating the content to the client learning management systems.

Our platform and tech support teams ensure that the final product is integrated and launched effectively.  We also create application/product usage metrics. This helps us in determining the effectiveness of the use of the product on the client interface/platform.
