Congo Gorilla Forest

In collaboration with the Lightbeam Group, bigchalk,  and The Bronx Zoo, IsoDynamic created Congo Gorilla Forest, a Virtual Field Trip that contributed to bigchalk’s Codie Award as Best Educational Web Site for Kids.  

The site allows children to explore the Congo River Basin of Africa through three perspectives: Omari, a local village boy, Dr. Amy Vedder, an anthropologist, and Julia, a lowland gorilla. Children explore a series of interactive activities, and then complete a culminating exercise which asks them to synthesize the knowledge they’ve gained during the experience to make a decision about building a road through the forest.

Creating Ideas That Create Demand

IsoDynamic was selected by McCann Worldgroup, the world’s largest network of Advertising Agencies, to develop Creating Ideas That Create Demand.  

The online course is a detailed interactive experience developed to ensure that McCann’s employees implement their proprietary methodology for creative that drives demand for their customers.  Several years in development, IsoDynamic worked directly with McCann subject matter experts and crafted the instructional design featuring interactive scenarios for employees to implement core ideas from the course.   This expansive e-Learning experience was delivered on a worldwide basis through McCann’s Learning Management System (LMS).

 

Detrol Time Release

IsoDynamic was brought in to assist Pharmacia in the development of an animation to demonstrate the unique nature of the Detrol time release system.  

A perfect example of a learning “nugget” (vs. an entire course), the Detrol animation shows the power of concept visualization and animation to communicate complex ideas.

Excellent Customer Service for Librarians

IsoDynamic was selected by the Maryland Library Partnership to develop Excellent Customer Service, an interactive online course designed to improve customer service for Librarians.  Studies show that librarians can give the correct answer to patron questions if they themselves ask the right questions of the patron.  

The course features numerous practice opportunities for librarians to drill deeper and discover exactly what a patron is asking before directing them to the appropriate resource.    Scenarios feature random questions from patrons, and a culminating exercise tests a librarians ability to handle multiple questions (and interruptions) from a queue of patrons.  

Excellent Customer Service was delivered on the Moodle platform, and is in continuous use for training librarians in the State of Maryland.
