Making learning happen for everyone

Making a custom online learning course and platform solution for english-language learners sleeker, smarter and more usable

Centro Latino Literacy is a nonprofit organization principally focused on their adult literacy program Leamos (Let’s Read). We helped them with a more robust digital version of their curriculum using the MOODLE management system. The project helped to strengthen and deepen our expertise in both the nonprofit realms and in terms of adult language learners.

Challenge

Centro Latino Literacy built an online version of their popular classroom curriculum—Leamos—that teaches adult Spanish speakers basic literacy and vital skills to achieve their goals and create a healthier society. The online version of the Leamos project wasn’t achieving the outcomes desired so Centro Latino Literacy asked us to make refinements and improvements to its usability, instructional design, and overall look and feel.

Solution

We performed an evaluation of Centro Latino’s instructional design, made recommendations for changes, implemented a list of refinements, and improved the back-end management of their online learning platform.   

Outcome

Enrollment in Leamos online is higher than previously experienced and feedback from participants and staff has been overwhelmingly positive. Having worked with us to rework the Leamos courses, Centro Latino Literacy then engaged us to further support their technology infrastructure and inform their program strategy for developing additional basic literacy courses for adult Spanish speakers.
