Back in 2008, 2015 and then 2021
2008 seems like such a long time ago now but it's when we started working with DDL and built their original web site and eLearning portal. Within six months of launch, the original project paid for itself from online training course fees and the demand grew significantly for more online courses over the following years.
In 2015, we recommended developing the tools to integrate Adobe Captivate and the xAPI (formerly the Tin-Can API) to generate SCORM-compliant courses that could be added to our existing platform1, alongside more sophisticated reporting and security provision. This provided DDL with more scope for creativity, question-based sections with branching and learner-interactivity. However, SCORM is only a presentational mechanism and it's complex. So we needed to integrate this with multiple technologies and develop major extensions to the portal for user administration control and course reporting systems.
In 2021, we undertook a migration of the entire system to a new hosting platform and modernised DDL's site design.
1 Later in 2020 this would supersede all the original Flash-based courses when Flash was retired by Adobe.
