Sound familiar?

"Help me fix my accordion!"

"Can you do a hotspot for me?"

"Could you just check over my storyboard before I start building."

"What's the best way to do this?"

They are to us!

While you're developing your course you might find that you need a bit of help or just want to ask a tough question. Consider buying a block of mentoring time.

All of our mentoring support is designed for teaching, so we don't just fix your accordion, we'll explain why it isn't working, and make sure you can do the next one yourself.


Want some tips from the pros? Sure you do.

Launching your first couple of courses can be scary. We want you confident about ‘going live' so we offer a review service where we'll look over your course and give you a comprehensive report.

The review covers:

  • Technical
  • Instructional
  • Systemic
  • Documentation

Many of our clients use Course Review as a final Quality Assurance step just to check that all is well and things are right to go.

This can also be purchased with an optional teleconference to go through the results.


Well, after all that wouldn't you like some recognition?

Our Certified Developer program asks you to provide us with evidence that you've developed and deployed your course to best industry standards.

This isn't as hard as it sounds – if you've created your course in accordance with the guidelines in Creating Effective eLearning you'll have all the evidence you need to be recognised by Canopi as a Certified Developer.

If you're a manager and want your staff to develop courses to industry best practice, then this program is a great option. You'll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your eLearning solution has the very best chance to deliver real and effective results.
