Targeted project management is a necessity for success in all forms of development. Apropos has project managers with extensive experience and solid expertise in project management in general and e-learning projects in particular.

Apropos has designed a model for course development - 6-stage model - which provides guidelines for the work and the results that the work will produce. The model is applied in over 50 course development projects in recent years, with good results. Below are the different steps in the development process and the deliverables produced in each step.

The model describes the following:

  • The six steps
  • Roles in the course development
  • Tasks and the various rolls involvement
  • Use of tools
  • Use of prototypes
  • Change Management
  • Quality Assurance

In addition to being a good guideline for our consultants, the company has found that the model helps to create awareness among its customers for the work to be done, and especially their role in the cooperation between customer and supplier.
