The Best Consulting Defines the Best Learning Programs
The Intersection of Consulting and Development
Curriculum Design requires careful analysis and planning by instructional design experts capable of developing activities, learning paths, lessons, and assessments. Origin works with you to understand the underlying issues or problems the training is intended to solve and your required performance goals. We take the information derived from your needs assessment and skills gap analysis to inform the course’s development. We then create a blueprint to address these gaps and carefully plan the content to ensure it is mapped to your desired learning objectives.
Job Task and Training Needs Analysis
Performing job task analyses for specific roles is a chore most employers would like to do but often lack the bandwidth to perform. It’s important because it provides a detailed account of tasks, responsibilities, and skills involved in identified job roles. It also helps isolate areas needing improvement while determining effective training paths and support that will have a measurable impact on both the learner and the organization.
Our Successful Approach:
Origin specializes in conducting fast, accurate job task analyses customized to your industry, company, and unique workplace culture. We conduct our research through face-to-face meetings with your Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), stakeholders, and unit leaders to determine the skills and proficiencies necessary for a specific role. We then distill this information into a customized report that offers detailed observations of activities involved as well as proficiency levels, standards, and workforce training needs/competencies required for each job role to be successful.

User Experience Design
Designing learning for the User Experience (UX) involves understanding the full lifecycle of the learner’s journey. From accessibility on various platforms or devices to how content is organized for easy navigation, or how complex content is broken down into manageable lessons – every interaction the user has with your learning program goes into the User Experience. Creating learning programs without an emphasis on UX can frustrate learners, have a negative impact on learner engagement, and ultimately reduce knowledge retention.
Why Trust Origin for Your UX Design?
It’s Origin’s goal to make learning as easy and engaging as possible, so your learners focus on acquiring the knowledge or skills your eLearning program was designed to teach them. We do this by designing with a user-first focus and applying fundamental UX principles, including:
User Interface Design
The User Interface (UI) is how learners interact with your eLearning, mobile learning, and performance support tools. UI plays a significant role in the User Experience (UX). Getting the interface wrong can lead to frustrations and potentially cast a negative perception of your entire learning program. Simply put, learners don’t want to have to think about the interface. They are there to learn!
We Adhere to UI Best Practices to Optimize Learning
At Origin, we take UI design very seriously. As with UX, we apply UI best practices to make the interface as intuitive as possible for your learners, including:

Content Development & Production
When seeking a development partner for your organization’s learning content, you want a partner who knows your industry but can also expand your vision with cross-industry experience. You want a partner capable of applying a range of content modalities but who chooses the best-fit strategies to match your culture, workforce, extended enterprise, and performance outcomes. From traditional instructor-led classroom content to the most sophisticated, leading-edge digital course technologies like AR and VR, Origin Learning is that partner.
Outcome-Focused Content Development
Origin has an impressive track record in developing custom content for various industries and topics supporting workforce enablement, customer enablement, and field enablement. Our highly effective development approach includes identifying each audience’s diverse learning objectives and layering those differences onto efficiently-designed common core content to achieve your desired outcomes. The result is engaging, learner-centric content that can be delivered on any device to foster engagement, retention of knowledge, observable behaviors, and measurable results for your organization.
Practice & Assessments
Practice makes perfect, so the saying goes. But sometimes, practice can make something imperfect (or really awful) if inexperienced users are making changes to a live program or software. So, what’s the solution?
Origin Helps Your Team Optimize Skills Through Safe Hands-On Training Opportunities
Assessments are an integral part of the curriculum planning process. Without them, you would have no insight into which competencies your learners already have, which they still need, or how the training can be improved to achieve better results.
Origin Learning designs and develops multiple types of assessments to ensure that your learners can effectively demonstrate the knowledge and apply it appropriately, including:
We Help Provide Important Insights Into Learner Competencies and Skills Gaps
Origin is highly skilled in developing and implementing practice and assessments into your learning programs.
It’s a sad truth that your learners will only retain about half of their newly-acquired knowledge after a few days or weeks unless that “memory of knowledge” is renewed regularly. Your employees require performance support that is accessible on-demand to assist them in their moment of need — when they are carrying out tasks or procedures. Performance Support Tools (PSTs) such as job aids, bite-sized training, or animated tutorials are designed to empower your employees by providing support right at their fingertips exactly when and where they need it.
Our Performance Support Tools Bridge Knowledge Gaps at the Point of Need.
Origin Learning is highly skilled in developing embedded Performance Support Tools into the workflow of learners. These tools provide immediate task support, improve learning stickiness, streamline efficiencies, and reduce downtime.
