It's entirely up to you. If you'd like to author a course yourself then you can, using Simplylearn's integrated course building facility. If you'd rather not undertake building your course, or there are aspects of it that require animation, video, simulations or interactions and you're not comfortable tackling these, talk to us. We offer a course building service and other new media based services that mean that we can manage the process for you. Call us on 01543 264929 to find out more.
Simplylearn is equipped with extensive tutor and administration facilities. These enable you to find out about your students, how long they have spent on your course, how much and which content they have covered and how they have performed in any assessments. Administrators can generate tailored course reports at any time. These can be viewed within the browser or exported as a CSV file for statistical analysis elsewhere.

If your course is bigger than the entry level course the remaining balance will need to be paid prior to course launch. You will then need to register on Simplylearn. Once you have registered, the deposit is paid and both parties have signed and received a copy of the contract your course will be set up. This process should take no more than 3-4 working days.

A key feature of Simplylearn is that you can republish an existing course and contextualise it. This effectively allows you to rapidly create bespoke versions of a master course and customize according to the needs of your customer. In addition, you can make any necessary modifications, for instance a change to standard legislative content, to the master course and it will automatically change for all of its associated republished courses.
