Online Course Creation
Online training has become one of the most widely used types of training for individuals and companies alike due to the convenience of study and the cost-effective nature of completing training online. Therefore, creating and selling courses online can be very profitable.
Many of our clients have courses that are very popular in the classroom but want to be able to reach a wider audience. With our online course creation service, turning your courses into an online format to be delivered via the Psittacus online training platform has never been easier.
With the ability to reach an ever increasing number of people and organisations using online training, customers adding their own courses to the Psittacus online training platform have increased their revenue whilst also reducing their delivery overheads by up to 70%.
Psittacus Systems are experts at creating an engaging and visually rich online learning experience, while offering you access to a sales team of over 200+ resellers to sell the courses for you.
Once your course is on the system you have the option to course exclusivity, or whether you want our wider reseller network to have access to the course to sell as well.
Course Types We Create
eLearning courses are designed to be interactive to help learners stay focused and engaged in the learning they are faced with.
The courses require the learner to perform small actions within the course, revealing further information, or quiz questions to help them reflect upon previous course content they have studied.Find Out More
eBooks are electronic versions of Distance Learning Workbooks, usually in PDF form, which can be read on a computer, a laptop, or a specifically designed handheld device, for example, tablets. They are text-based courses that appeal to learners who prefer to learn through reading.Find Out More
Video learning is a useful alternative to e-learning as videos can be shown to large groups of people, which can be very useful in classroom-based learning and work-based courses.
The other advantage of video learning is that for some learners, images can better engage with them; traditional eLearning or eBooks can be seen as “boring” for some learners. Video learning can solve this problem by making learning more fun and easier to retain.Find Out More
Distance Learning courses are ordered through the platform and the workbooks are printed and posted directed to the delivery address provided. The course can be studied at the learner’s leisure, with various reflective activities through the courses to help them retain their learning. The benefit of this type of learning is that the learner is able to keep the workbook for future reference.
Learners will be provided with a bespoke ‘Activation’ code within their workbook that will provide them with instructions on how to register and retrieve their final course assessment.Find Out More

Online Course Creation Hints & Tips
One of the main issues faced in this area is the sheer volume of information that you have in various documents, files, books or simply rattling around your head. Getting this down on paper can be quite a tricky process.
The skill at this development stage is not just about what should be included in the course, but what should be left out as well. By ensuring that you have designed engaging & relevant course content. We will help guide you through this process.
Ensure that each learning outcome has content that aligns to it
Try to keep any unrelated material down to a minimum or leave it out completely
Ensure the content you create has a ‘Flow’ to it and that it isn’t jumping from one area to another and back again
Group together similar themes in the form of ‘Modules’
Ensure the final assessment questions for the course cover all of the learning outcomes
Regularly review your course material to ensure that it is up to date and still fit for purpose
If you want to improve your organisations learning strategy or have training materials you want to monetise and publish online but aren’t sure where to start, an authoring tool might be the answer you’re looking for. Using an authoring tool gives you full control of the learning you produce, without the need for a deep technical ability or a sky-high budget.
In simple terms, an authoring tool is an eLearning course creation tool. It allows anyone, not just programmers, to create and package engaging pieces of learning and deliver them to the end user.
As well as making course creation a simple process, authoring tools enable you to customise and update courses yourself and collaborate on learning design and review with the other creative minds in your team or company.
