Training Content Development & Design

Learning organizations seek content solutions that work best for learners, and for the chosen delivery methods that can handle the dizzying array of specialized courses for their groups.

RPS’ approach to course development is grounded in a disciplined strategy to ensure optimal cost, schedule and quality, while offering a flexible development process that incorporates Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation (ADDIE), Agile and collaborative method.

We start from where you need us to — from your must-haves or a blank slate.. We add a sixth element — maintenance—to refine and evolve courses as needs and priorities change — and offer a translation process that ensures learners are presented with content in their language.

Rapid Development LCMS

Catapult, our rapid-development learning content management system (LCMS), uses auto-formatting intelligent mobile faceplate designed and built with advanced tools to drive the build-once, use-often HTML5 learning solution.

Through our regional and language-variant technology, developers maintain a link to the core content and permit tailored by office, region and language while supporting efficient updates to the core content across all variants of the course. This reduces ongoing maintenance of the course because the courses are contained in one course structure and not in separate courses.
