Instructional Design & Online Learning
Full Tilt Ahead makes online learning decisions based on best practices in pedagogically sound design, centralized strategy, creative engagement, and technology integration.
Pedagogically Sound Design
The important word in the phrase “online learning” is learning. You can’t just transfer traditional classroom-based instructional practices online, but you can ensure that the learning environment is just as, if not more, conducive to student success. Our design philosophy always puts pedagogy before technology.
Centralized Online Learning Strategy
Many of our clients have been wading into the world of online learning for several years, but have not yet developed a centralized online learning strategy for their institution. We work with clients to build a custom infrastructure for consistent course design and development, orientation and training, faculty development and compensation, compliance, service models, workflows and tool integration. With growing capabilities for data mining, we also help clients learn how to apply learning analytics at institutional, programmatic and course levels.
Creative & Effective Engagement
Our team has a hard to find mix of instructional design, software development and graphic design experience and we love coming together to help clients experiment with innovative ideas for student engagement. We like off-the-wall ideas and want to explore them with you.
Learning Tool Integration & Support
There is no dearth of educational technology tools available to jazz up learning experiences and help teachers. But where do you start? And how do you support them? Our experience with multiple learning management systems and system add-ons has prepared us to guide clients through the maze of learning tool selection, training and support. We can help you with big decisions like choosing your learning management system or web-conferencing platform as well as important course level decisions like which tool is best for information mapping, timelines or office hour scheduling.
Full Tilt Ahead is most energized by the process of working collaboratively towards specific goals. We thrive on problem-solving and creative design challenges and will work closely with members of your team to imagine
and re-imagine effective and innovative approaches.
