In our experience, the biggest challenge facing eLearning is actually rather simple. Most eLearning platforms tend to be very inward-looking - they put a lot of time and effort into their content, but lose focus of what's most important - the learner. At Hornbill, this is the gap we work to bridge.
We start with a sound base of instructional design capabilities, but that's where we leave the traditional eLearning playbook behind. The digital medium has opened up a pretty remarkable set of possibilities for learning - so why do so many eLearning providers continue to use traditional teaching formats as the basis for their courses?
At Hornbill, our young and passionate team draws on different aspects of the digital medium to harness its full potential. From relatable characters and intuitive graphics brought to life through pixel perfect design and movie-grade animation to absorbing user interactivity - we strongly believe that entertainment and communication are central to delivering content to users in a way that is unforgettable, and that keeps them coming back for more.
And that, in essence, is what eLearning is all about at Hornbill.
