Rapid eLearning focuses on producing engaging eLearning environment quickly to meet urgent eLearning goals like training and compliance e-learning. There is a common notion that Rapid eLearning is passive presentation rather being a training activity with assessment, workshops and user collaboration. With integration of rapid eLearning content and assessment, with LMS system your Rapid eLearning becomes 100% complete offering a self-paced learning environment with user collaboration via forums, wiki and chat. We are experts at delivering rapid eLearning solutions using various state-of-the-art authoring tools like Articulate, Captivate, Atlantic link and Lectora to deliver engaging eLearning projects normally within one or two weeks of time.

Our rapid eLearning services include:
Content development or instructional design.
Content integration in existing or new LMS, LCMS portal.
SCORM/GIFT content packaging for different LMS solutions.
Simulation based training and assessment modules with rich media and user interactivity.
Content conversion between various LCMS platforms.

Passive text guides/manuals are boring enough to read. However, if a self-paced simulation with user interactivity replaces these bulky manuals, results are astonishing. It promotes a quick learning curve with internalization of every aspect involved in the learning.

We deliver such real application/software simulation that can be used for class-room training, self-paced one-to-one training and web training using SaaS model. We have developed training modules and product demonstrations for our corporate clients. Assessment modules follow the training, to achieve the learning goals and measure the effectiveness of the training. We can integrate the training and assessment modules within your web-portal for easy accessibility.


As penetration of mobile technologies is seeking deep roots in our world economy; the mobile learning is also flourishing as a very viable anytime-anywhere solution. This can be truly achieved by mapping our learning activities and resources optimally to various mobile platforms. We have already ported our solutions to Android and IOS platforms. We are constantly working towards making our solutions for mobile, far more reachable and better interactive for every conceivable mobile platform.

Some mLearning myth busters:
There are no consistent standards for mobile learning.
HTML-5 and other web2.0 standards are mobile friendly.
Mobile devices are distraction.
With proper design and implementation (focusing on content and cultural change), we can develop distraction free mLearning.
Learning is scattered.
Rather, we say it becomes collaborative and more personalized at the same time.
Educations and entertainment are poles apart.
We speak differently and promote edutainment (perfect blend of education with entertainment through innovative strategy and creative designs).
It’s a complex process
Not at all. To tread fast on mLearning you need three basic setups
Social media account
Mobile versions of VLE (Virtual Learning Environment)
Messaging setup.
To develop the mLearning for you, our approach:
Chalk out mobile learning vision
Discover targeted stake holders and their requirements
Once you are agreed on scope, form a core team including key members from your side and our team.
Create beta content for learners and key players. Receive feedback.
Gain feedback; improve the solution by carrying out successive iterations.
Once the product is ready, roll out for wider group.
