Futura Group build, design and manage eLearning solutions from the ground up.

End-to-end eLearning solutions.

From planning and consultation, to instructional design and implementation, Futura Group can help you develop a fully customised eLearning solution to meet your training needs.

Why eLearning?

eLearning is convenient and can take place anytime, anywhere.

  • Participants in eLearning programs learn almost five times more material in the same amount of time allocated for traditional training initiatives.
  • Studies have also demonstrated that by allowing learners to work at their own pace,  they retain more information than with traditional instructor led training - in some cases by 25% - 60%.
  • eLearning is cost effective and can be used to to standardise delivery (for instance, compliance, WHS or induction training).

Types of eLearning

TAFES, Universities and RTOs

Leading education institutions use our custom training solutions to open new markets, reduce training costs, and provide consistent delivery across faculties and campuses. Futura Group can work with SMEs to develop a curriculum from scratch, or we can convert existing training materials into an engaging eLearning format.
We have  experience developing our own resources within a standards-based environment (e.g. AQF, Service Skills Australia, SCORM technical standards for eLearning products, W3C, WCAG 2.0). Our Curriculum Experts and Instructional Designers also have years of practise aligning content and learning tasks to key competencies (i.e. Training Package requirements).

Business

An effective workplace training solution can help improve compliance and internal processes,  performance in the workplace, or more engaged consumers. eLearning can also reduce training costs associated with onboarding or induction processes - Find out more.

Government

eLearning can be effective tool to drive staff engagement or behavioural change (for instance, to support new policies or initiatives).  Futura Group is a pre-approved provider of eLearning Services to the NSW Government, and has completed several ICT projects for the Department, as well as previously tendered projects, including resource development for the ADF School of Catering - View our Portfolio.

Hospitality

An increasing number of businesses within the hospitality and tourism industry are turning to eLearning as an efficient and cost effective way of providing training programs for their employees. Hospitality eLearning programs are commonly utilised by major hotel and restaurant corporations to not only to expand employees’ skills, but also to train employees new to the hospitality and tourism industry - Read More.

Our Approach

eLearning can only work if the experience is interesting, stimulating and engaging...

To engage and inspire learners our custom eLearning solutions include interactive diagrams and challenges, videos, scenarios, virtual environments and animations.
Having worked with subject matter experts (SMEs) across a range of disparate subject areas (from Chefs and Hotel Managers to Waterproofers and Forklift Drivers), our Instructional designers have the proven ability to create interesting courses to address almost any training requirement.

Project Methodology

  • Typically, Futura Group will work with you to establish your needs (audience, behavioural outcomes, learning constraints, etc.) and then document the project's instructional, visual and technical design strategy.
  • After creating storyboards, and assembling any required content, our designers will begin work on the user interface and user experience, creating prototypes for approval (as required).
  • Our eLearning developers will then work to integrate learning technologies. Projects are reviewed at key milestones, evaluated, and revised according to any feedback provided.
  • To assist with the implementation and adoption of new systems and technologies, our bespoke eLearning products are supported with learner guides, handouts and/or workbooks in a range of formats (as required), and can include resources such as PowerPoint presentations and introductory videos.
