Velocedge benefits from the experience and lessons learned over the past few years from
companies like Ford, General Motors, Goodyear, Texas Instruments, and others while
designing interactive distance learning programs. We have developed an IDL Instructional
Design Guidelines that capture these lessons and documents the most effective way to
design and deliver IDL content. Velocedge provides consulting services and hosts
instructional design workshops to train instructional designers and instructors in IDL
design and delivery.
Interactive Satellite Broadcast
Velocedge develops courses for delivery through interactive satellite
networks. The course development is based on the experience gained through
working with the various client relationships and incorporate the best
techniques and approaches possible.
- Incalculable cost savings: time off work, travel, etc.
- Much less cost to develop and deliver IDL courses
- Deliver to more people at the same time
- From "Go" to delivery to target audience in no time
- Over 25% improvement in student retention
- Consistent delivery of the training/communication message
Web Based Training
Velocedge also develops web based training courses to augment and support the
satellite broadcasts. These courses are developed based on the Learning
Resource iNterchange standard.
Learning Resource iNterchange (LRN) Support
Integration with Database
has developed applications that accommodates web based training and provides "hooks" into the Arel
database so the results of web courses can be captured and stored in the same
database as the interactive satellite system uses. Web courses
developed internally or purchased from 3rd party suppliers can be integrated
with the system to capture the results in a common repository.
Essay Question Support
Integrated with the
database is the ability to define essay questions as part of an Exam or Quiz.
This facility works for those Exams or Quizzes taken over the web, but can be
defined in the Arel system and stored right along with the regular results.
Any course, as well as
for general information, may include an eBroadcast Presentation.
An eBroadcast Presentation is a web based presentation that allows an instructor to
issue slides in real-time to many different participants over the internet.
As the instructor changes slides, the page on each participant's browser
automatically changes at the same time. Audio is heard over the internet
at each participant's site through multi-media computers. Optionally,
video can also be sent with the audio but this requires significantly more
