Our newest client is American CME, a fledgling company that provides online training for health care professionals.
American CME offers continuing medical education through documentary-style classes that consist of a video and a short test. While viewing the videos, users can pause and rewind anytime, and they have 24 hours to complete the training. The company has a good business plan, some well-produced videos for the training, and it definitely looks like they’ll fulfill a void in online CME training industry that will lead to a successful venture.
The company founders, Jeff Latkowski and Geoff Lassers, hired us to create a website and logo, as well as to build, set up, and integrate their video training into an online learning management system through Moodle. The first requirement was to have a bare-bones website with video, quiz and chit ready by January 1st, so they could get their site listed in the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) directory.
Rick created a professional-looking logo/banner, using their name, a subtle medical image and a tagline. I integrated the banner into a Moodle theme that I adapted and revamped into the colors, look, and layout we thought the company was aiming for. Brandon built the Moodle aspects, integrated the video, set up the quiz, passwording, and other technical elements.
We made the January 1st deadline, and here’s stage one of the website. We’re currently adding more pages, a blog, a full FAQ section, and other facets of the site, and I’ll update the Palmerworks blog when the site is complete. The MDCH directory accessed the site, went through the sample course, and American CME has been accepted into their 2010 directory.
