On behalf of Echelon Learning, Wordhouse managed the design,
authoring, editing, desktop publishing, production and distribution of
over 2,000 hours’ worth of text-based open learning material for CIPFA,
the leading public sector accountancy body. The materials comprised open
learning study guides, revision guides, question banks and textbooks
for each of the ten examinations (plus case study and project) which
CIPFA students must pass to qualify for membership of their professional
body. More than 5,000 A4 pages of learning materials were developed, at
the equivalent of first year degree level, and they were updated by
Henley Business School
During the initial development of its e-learning MBA programme,
by its in-house development team, Henley Business School called on
Wordhouse to help. Wordhouse’s role was to copy-edit the materials for grammar, punctuation,
consistency and conformity to house style. On certain modules, more
substantive editing was involved, to ensure that the materials met HMC’s
stringent requirements concerning technical accuracy and narrative
style. Finally, Wordhouse identified materials requiring copyright
clearance. The first modules came out on time.
Eight e-learning modules were produced over an intensive eighteen month period.
Global university textbook publisher
One of the world's largest
publishers of unversity textbooks asked Wordhouse to help design and
develop its new e-learning courses aimed at degree-level students in
business and management. Wordhouse helped at the instructional
design stage and subsequently commissioned, managed and edited the
material ready for handover to the publisher's e-learning production vendor.
Eight e-learning modules, comprising well over a million words of text,
were produced over an intensive eighteen month period.
University of Bedfordshire
The Business School, one of the largest faculties within this rapidly
developing University, commissioned Wordhouse to develop and produce
modular study guides for different versions of its e-learning MBA.
