Instructional Systems Design and Development Services

APV’s instructional systems design and development services help our clients to maximize staff job performance and minimize knowledge gaps. Our team of learning professionals analyzes, designs, develops, implements, and evaluates the learning solutions that we produce using industry best practices and standards—whether it’s traditional classroom training, eLearning/computer-based trainings (synchronous and asynchronous), or an effective blend. We also partner with our clients to design and develop informal just-in-time learning, instructional videos, on-demand microlearning products, performance aids, and instructional support materials to meet the dynamic needs of today’s diverse workforce. Knowledge checks and assessment questions help to confirm whether course and learning objectives have been met.

Interactive Learning Solutions

APV is adept at building engaging, interactive solutions that deliver measurable results. The level of interactivity for every learning solution can be tailored to meet our clients’ budget and training needs. Solutions range from Level I interactive courses that can be rolled out to staff quickly, to Level IV immersive solutions that are highly interactive and designed to build mission-critical skills through practice.

Learning and Knowledge Management Systems Implementation

APV has decades of experience in implementing custom learning and knowledge management systems. We focus heavily on designing interfaces that enable learners and administrators to navigate easily through courses, grades, databases, and educational resources. Our skilled developers have years of expertise working with industry-leading platforms including but not limited to Blackboard, Genius Student Information System, Total Force, Moodle, Canvas, Rise, SharePoint, and Schoology.

Digital Media Production

Playing a critical role in enhancing the user experience through customized, high-quality eLearning assets, APV’s experienced multimedia designers and developers have expertise across multiple domains including photography, interactive media, animation, digital illustration, 3D modeling, 2D graphic design, and videography. We offer both on-site and in-studio videography services.

Immersive Learning (AR/VR)

APV taps into the power of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to enhance job performance by combining scenario-based learning with immersive technology. Computer-based simulations, games, and learning applications developed for clients range from single- and multi-player 3D foreign language adventures to immersive, 2D and 3D disaster preparedness simulations.

Why immersive learning? Immersion enables learners to build their skills in a safe environment before applying them in the real world, resulting in cost savings and enhanced safety for the organization. It also allows instructors to assess learners’ understanding of materials covered during instruction to correct any behavioral or procedural errors that could lead to negative outcomes – even fatalities.
