PenMan Communications develops instructional materials for instructor-led training and online computer based training.
We are a leader in Instructional Design & Development. We maximize the effectiveness, efficiency and appeal of instruction and other learning experiences. The process consists broadly of determining the current state and needs of the learner, defining the end goal of instruction, and creating some “intervention” to assist in the transition.
Our Design process is enhanced through the analysis of learning needs and systematic development of learning materials. We utilize all available technologies and multimedia tools to enhance instruction. We employ a proven development methodology derived from the industry-standard process. From start to finish, our process focuses on the needs of the learners and developing solutions that produce performance gains.
Training Authoring Methodology
PenMan Communications utilizes the ADDIE Model for creating instructional materials. The five phases contained in the model are:
Analyze – analyze learner characteristics and tasks to be learned
Design – develop learning objectives and choose an instructional approach
Develop – create instructional or training materials
Implement – deliver or distribute the instructional materials
Evaluate – make sure the materials achieved the desired goals
Computer Based or Web based training developers create self-paced learning activities accessible via a computer or handheld device. The term Computer-Based Training (CBT)is often used interchangeably with Web-based training (WBT) with the primary difference being the delivery method.
Where CBTs are typically delivered via CD-ROM, WBTs are delivered via the Internet using a web browser. Assessing learning in a CBT usually comes in the form of multiple choice questions, or other assessments that can be easily scored by a computer such as drag-and-drop, radial button, simulation or other interactive means. Assessments are easily scored and recorded via online software, providing immediate end-user feedback and completion status. Users are often able to print completion records in the form of certificates.
Our approach integrates well-written material with outstanding graphics, images and attractive page layouts to enhance the reading and learning experience of the intended audience.
