VSD develops stand-alone and web-based SCORM-compliant courses, the recognized standard for computer-based training program development. We employ curriculum designers, technologists, learning scientists, chief instructors and subject matter experts to deliver all phases of military-grade and high-end commercial grade courseware development. Our courseware is currently used by governments, militaries, and corporations in more than 30 countries.
VSD is different from other courseware providers in that we have an extensive in-house learning science capability and multimedia capability. For customers seeking the optimal solution, we conduct organization mission-objectives analyses, job-task analyses, and knowledge-skills-abilities analyses as the design basis for developing such maximum-results-producing courses. With our multimedia capability, we create state-of-the-art video, sound, animations, images, 3-D models, web content, and 3-D terrains. When VSD’s multimedia is fused with our science-based instructional systems design capabilities, the result is an outstanding, results-producing CBT training solution.
We are also unique in the relationships we have with a pool of over 250 subject matter experts, market specialists, and certified trainers. Through these relationships, and in combination with our international delivery capacity, we are able to offer computer-based training courses in virtually any language and in any location.
In 2002, VSD built and delivered the very first commercially developed computer-based training (CBT) course on the U.S. Navy’s E-Learning platform. Since then, VSD has retained a leading provider position, applying science and systematic process to courseware development such that the final training solution is the most efficient, productive, and powerful computer-based training tool possible. The value of this approach to designing CBT courses is evidenced in how much use these courses receive: VSD’s courseware is made available to more than 2,000,000 defense, homeland security, and civil servants worldwide every year.
