A web-based, custom LMS, with simple reporting tools and a series of level specific courses (CBTs).

Testimony by Jim McGuire
A valued client emailed recently with a request for a project.
That’s always a great way to start the day, but this project had a twist. We would not be working directly with the client, but rather an advertising agency also involved with our client.
The ad agency wanted to launch training content they had created, and knew through our client that we were maintaining an LMS and hosting a number of training courses.
When it happens, you’ll see this dynamic played out at project completion where there is minimal acknowledgement of your contribution to a successful project.
The possibility of this happening means that you actually need to take on greater responsibility for the project’s success and that starts with setting expectations for how the project will be worked.
Behaviors that we expect from everyone associated with a project like this include being flexible when dealing with new approaches, creative in solving problems and on-schedule with elements of the project that we have agreed to support.
For these and other factors, we chose Creative Approaches to assist us with this project, as we knew that Creative Approaches possessed these characteristics in addition to having the technical expertise necessary to work through the issues related to managing online learning courses created by another organization.
Following months of meetings, conference calls and emails involving numerous project additions right up until the last minute, the project is now complete. While we’ve not heard from our original client, the secondary agency has expressed their appreciation for our contribution and has even discussed a future follow-on project.
The mini-LMS was developed to be "responsive" - as show in the phone graphic here. Creative Approaches is using responsive development in every learning project they produce.
