Web-Based Training

Web-based training courses have proven to be the fastest and most cost-effective way for the Government to deliver training. Sunset Design has been providing innovative, compelling, and well-coordinated web-based training solutions in support of its Government customers since 2001.

We employ the principles of industrial design to create high-quality products quickly, and at minimal cost. All online training produced by Sunset Design is powered by an exclusive, proprietary software engine that is designed to be re-useable, and highly customizable to both the needs of the client and the needs of LMS platforms where the training will be hosted. Our software is actively maintained by highly skilled, in-house programming staff. This assures that the training and features we provide are exactly what you need without having to compromise due to the constraints of a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) system, such as Captivate, Powerpoint, or Articulate Studio.

All of our training courses can be configured for both SCORM-based and non SCORM-based LMS platforms, and can even be adapted to new LMS platforms as they emerge and as online training needs evolve. User progress is bookmarked and saved regardless of the environment. This allows for course content of any length on any platform. Training content can also be easily updated for years after completion of the initial deliverable.

Sunset Design creates custom HTML5 training courses through a mix of engaging animations, interactive exercises, videos, knowledge checks, and final exams. This is accomplished without any reliance on Adobe Flash Player, which avoids the security risk of using technology that is no longer supported or updated. In addition, our training courses work across all NMCI-supported browsers without any additional setup from the end user. All audio, images and videos are optimized for government network connections, providing the fastest possible load times without compromising presentation quality.

Sunset Design has an efficient mix of personnel, with an effective combination of experience and technical expertise to provide for the highest quality of services in support of the web-based training. All course content passes through multiple rounds of quality assurance at every stage of development, including pre-production script development, initial programming of training content prior to client review, and final testing of the entire course prior to submission, and post-release updates.

We ensure all training courses are compliant with current regulations and policies. Section 508 compliance is achieved through multiple rounds of testing by dedicated staff under real-world conditions, not through automated programs. Our testers review the entire training to ensure that closed captioning and the included transcript are a word-for-word representation of the training. Training courses are tested start-to-finish with actual screen reader software before release, verifying that all on-screen content is accurately described and that all navigation and interaction is accessible without assistance.
