Canada Customs and Revenue Agency

Companion Tool for On-line Course Developers
Canada Customs and Revenue Agency has been actively designing and using web-based, on-line training to replace many of its classroom courses. CCRA designers are often not training experts, but rather SMEs in their own specialized fields. We prepared a simple, easy-to-use on-line Companion Tool to help these designers incorporate sound learning strategies and methodologies in their training designs. The training tool presents some 16 important principles of design, and then offers users more explanation of how to achieve these in their on-line designs. Finally, users can see several practical examples of how others integrate these design principles in training products.
