In the beginning

Liberate eLearning Pty Ltd was found amidst the global uncertainty of an economic meltdown. Within the first 12 months of operation, Liberate cemented itself as a highly regarded eLearning vendor in the Australian market – attracting the attention of dozens of resumés from people wanting to join our growing team.

Strong relationships

Liberate has sustained substantial growth by forging strong relationships with large national and global organisations.

Esteemed reputation

We have significantly increased our client base through unsolicited referrals as a result of constantly exceeding expectations.

Steadfast quality

Liberate is regarded as a highly distinguished and revered custom eLearning vendor that is 100% Australian owned and operated, and attracts the best staff in the Australian eLearning industry.

Our Services

Our Services

At Liberate eLearning, we specialise in the development of interactive, engaging and memorable eLearning courses.

When we refer to 'eLearning', we're specifically referring to immersive and highly interactive online learning experiences.

Our instructional designers are not just technical writers; they are creative writers – all with an education or training background. Every eLearning solution is different; however, the learning methodology of our courses is based on applying sound adult learning principles. Specifically, we embrace Gagne's Elements of Effective Instructional Design. Additionally, we apply Keller's ARCS Model (Arousal, Relevance, Confidence and Satisfaction). We look forward to the opportunity of discussing the learning theories that influence our solutions with you.

We love creating authentic and scenario-based online learning programs. However, if you need to use rapid development tools, such as Articulate Storyline or similar, as a form of basic 'information dissemination'; let us teach you how your team can easily create these internally with little effort or eLearning skills required.

Custom eLearning

Custom eLearning

Our custom courses are designed, written and developed specifically to achieve your business objectives and contextually resonate with your learners – there's nothing generic about it.

Peruse our Portfolio section if you'd like to see samples of our work.

eLearning Team Coaching

eLearning Team Coaching

A number of our clients are large national and global organisations with well-established internal Learning and Development teams – but they're often lacking the advanced technical eLearning capability to troubleshoot LMS connectivity or establish robust SCORM or AICC compliant templates and processes – and that's where we play our part, by providing technical eLearning support.

On the other end of the scale, some of our clients are new to eLearning, and rely on us to independently advise on the best-fit eLearning development tools based on their specific skills and requirements. We create customised and configurable templates and provide training and personalised coaching on eLearning best practice and the use of tools such as Lectora, Captivate and HTML, for example. Essentially, our clients rely on us to do the tricky parts and guide them through the establishment of their eLearning capability.

Here are a couple of common scenarios:

Provide solid foundations: We're asked to build the first course, and then provide instructions on how to copy and repurpose the template so our clients can create subsequent courses themselves knowing they're working from a solid foundation.

Templates and training: Because we're experts in tools such as Lectora, Captivate and Dreamweaver (and many more), we're asked to design custom templates and facilitate onsite workshops. We teach you how to use the tools and copy the templates we build based on your requirements. We've been told that we’re five times cheaper than attending a generic workshop, yet you walk away with much more.

Emergency call outs: Clients engage us for a set number of hours per months – this is our Priority Support Account. When a client has a problem, or needs us to supplement their project team at short notice, we can immediately jump on-board and apply an extra pair of hands – recognising we're seasoned experts that can lead the team.

Help you do more with less: Some internal teams are inherited or organically developed – and we're often asked to provide coaching workshops on best practice. Our workshops are designed to lead the team to consider more efficient ways of working and implement new standard operating procedures and methodologies.

Training Consultancy

Our Consultants

Our consultants are experts in the field of change management, organisational development, and Learning and Development. They've held senior management and executive positions in large organisations, and they're pragmatic in regards to the challenges facing organisational change and helping you achieve more with less.

We're able to lead your trainers and designers from the grass-roots level, and we're also able to advice on company-wide strategic direction and change management initiative.

Our consultants can provide you with face-to-face, blended training or perform business analysis in order to identify short-falls in operational procedures and conduct process mapping. If you need to generate a business case or require expert support with a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) – Liberate can help.

Blended Training

At Liberate eLearning, we put our customers' needs ahead of our own – this is reflected in numerous references and testimonials (go on, ask us for a copy).

We're different because we have a genuine desire to ensure your business needs are achieved and the learning outcomes of projects are met. We don't try to put a square peg in a round hole.

Naturally we offer online training solutions, but we're also well equipped to develop the face-to-face training and coaching guides. For example, a learner may be required to undertake an online module as a prerequisite for attending an instructor-led training session – talk to us about how we manage the development of blended training.

Mobile Deployment

Mobile Deployment

At Liberate, we have devoted years of research and technical development into our templates. Many of these templates are built using HTML (Dreamweaver) and other software compatible with Apple and Android devices.

Our team are experienced in designing courses for mobile deployment, and we take into consideration the differences between eLearning (deployment from a computer) compared to mLearning (deployment from a mobile device).

Through direct experience over several years, we recognise that mLearning isn't a one size solution – other factors need to be considered, such as designing interactions that are user-friendly on a touch-screen, for example.

Our mobile solutions are radically different to our eLearning solutions and we’ve split this offering into two distinct categories.

iPad and Tablet solutions

These mLearning solutions are designed similarly to our computer-based eLearning solutions; however, we avoid interactions such as roll-over and slider-bar interactions (not user-friendly on touch-screens) and we reduce the amount of text on screen by one-third.

iPhone and Smart Phone solutions

Generally speaking, these solutions are considered to be 'just-in-time' learning pieces, and therefore, they need to be short 'n' sharp. The target audience are often time-poor and usually on the move. We adopt a completely different writing and design approach for these solutions in order to best suit this unique learning and development requirement. For example, these solutions largely rely on Augmented Reality (AR), audio, and info-graphics, and cater for a smaller amount of reading.

LMS & Hosting

LMS & Hosting

Learning Management Systems

Learning Management Systems (LMS) are the central repository for learning activities and courses. Our standard LMS features include the ability to access eLearning courses and track user access and results, along with the ability to export individual and group learning completions.

Maintaining our philosophy of independence from any one platform, tool and provider, we offer various LMS options that you can own and manage yourself. We'll get you started by configuring and branding an LMS for you, uploading your courses and learners' details – then we'll train you to easily administer your LMS yourself.

Hosting and support

In most instances, our clients find the Software as a Service (SaaS) model suits their needs. Therefore, we offer secure and protected hosting services – you don't need to worry about anything. Should you have any problems remembering how to use your LMS, you can contact our support lines and we'll assist. You also have the option of subscribing to a monthly support agreement; however, we find most of our clients are self-sufficient; and the LMS is easy to administer – so using our support based on an hourly rate may prove to be an economical 'pay as you go' model.

Off-the-Shelf courses

Off the Shelf courses

Off-the-shelf titles

Our operation is centred on eLearning courseware. We haven't listed the types of courses accessible as there are thousands available – working as your broker, we can source you the best courses for your particular needs. Some key requirements that we take into account when matching courses to your needs are:

  • The titles and volume of courses required
  • The ability to own, customise and brand to your specifications
  • Contract negotiations to ensure you get the best deal to suit your needs
  • Relevance to your target audience and culture
  • Your licensing needs

We can also provide you with consultation around analysing different economical models to determine the financial viability of licensing courses over building your own courses.

Let us generate you an income stream!

Are you interested in generating an income stream from your existing courses? We can act as your broker, selling your existing courses to organisations on your behalf. Sensitive information is concealed before others review your courses; and of course, we remove your branding and liability as part of the reseller agreement. Many clients fund the development of further programs from the sale of their existing courses.

Our Approach

People investment

Quality eLearning is best achieved when the learning is relevant, immediately engaging and personalised to the learner's individual needs. We understand that your most valuable investment is your people, and their knowledge. At Liberate eLearning, we want your learners to enjoy their training, and feel inspired by their learning.

Free from contracts

We believe it's advantageous for you to be free from contracts and renewable licenses that don't suit your changing needs.

Flexible technology

To reduce your investment in eLearning technology, and avoid being restricted in your future options, we are not aligned with proprietary tools and technology. Rather, we recommend you keep options open and utilise any investment you have already made in eLearning technology.

From our experience, poorly designed and constructed course materials sends a message to employees that their learning isn't valued.

Not being restricted to predefined course templates, we can use HTML, Flash or other tools you may own or have licenses to already.

Our approach is not just online, we also provide end-to-end mediums – such as blended online with face-to-face synchronous discussions and online moderation and collaborative tools.

Instructional Design

eLearning and instructional theories are the framework for our bespoke course solutions. We rely on these theories to make design decisions that help us anticipate what will happen during the learning experience. An eLearning course that is filled with bells and whistles is no substitute for a sound instructional treatment. While those types of programs might entertain, they will not maximise the effectiveness of workplace relevant 'information processing', and quality learning will not occur.

Robert Gagne created a nine-step process called Events of Instruction – events of instruction are related to an individual's learning process. We embrace this process for our eLearning designs as it is based on the information processing model of the mental events that occur when adults are presented with new information to learn.

Custom eLearning

Our solutions are also mapped on John Keller's ARCS Model of learner motivation. This model is based on the acronym Arousal, Relevance, Confidence and Satisfaction. The ARCS model is a problem solving approach to designing the motivational aspects of learning environments to stimulate and sustain learners' motivation to learn. In order to maximise learning transference to the workplace, we also need to anchor our solution closely to the second element – relevance.

Our solutions are effective because we also ensure relevant and motivational tactics support our instructional goals. Sometimes the motivational features can be fun or even entertaining, but unless they engage the learner in the instructional purpose and content, they will not promote learning effectively in an eLearning context.

Embracing these two models allows us to guide the learning process, which is why they form the backbone of our learning solutions. Coupled with interactive task relevant case studies and relevant stories, these models allow us to incorporate your learner's background, culture, experience and job relevance into our design.
