At Great River Technologies, we believe that an educational web site is only as good as its instructional design, functionality, performance, and reliability. Our expert consulting services—before, during, and after site creation—guarantee learning success.
Our consulting services encompass:
The first step in constructing your site is to meet with you and listen. What are your specific needs? Goals? Objectives?
What is your specific course situation? Do you need to avail distance learning? What is the demographic of your learner?
How do you personally organize yourself to teach your course, and what information needs to be shared with others?
And then, we brainstorm. Often, when we’ve brainstormed with educators, we’ve proposed solutions to challenges they didn’t even realize were solvable. And we made their job much easier.
Analysis of Internal Systems
In order to be successful in providing effective software, it’s critical to do an analysis of internal systems.
When we fully understand your internal systems we can guarantee the best possible solutions for you and your institution. Functionality, connection speed, internet accessibility, hardware requirements, and hosting options all play an important role in determining how we propose successful solutions for meeting your course needs.
Analyzing course structure, instructional style, learning needs, and ways to achieve set objectives are just as important as analyzing hardware systems.
Traditional teaching using a textbook is very different than creating a multi-dimensional learning opportunity through an interactive site.
At GRT, we work with you to understand your needs and then leverage a variety of technologies to deliver your solutions, developing a sound pedagogical strategy for each and every project along the way.
Guaranteeing that you fully understand your new teaching tool and all of its capabilities, GRT will train you at your institution. You learn at your own pace, in your own setting, and freely asking any questions you might have.
Your personal trainer will be the same person or team that constructed your site for you, and the same person or team that will be with you for continued support any time you need us.
GRT is proud to be your partner in educating.
