August 31, 2017 2:52 pm Natalie Thorpe

So, what is it that makes MetaCompliance industry leaders in the field of Cyber Security eLearning? It’s a pretty bold statement to make, but certainly not one without its credit. Think of the perfect pastry. For it to become a memorable favourite it must have all the key quality ingredients and a dedicated team who love what they do.

Not just anything will do to retain interest and make sure the impression sticks. At MetaCompliance, that’s what we are all about – making it stick and ensuring compliance for your business, not just now but weeks, months, years down the line. So today we thought we’d open up the doors and spill a few secrets on just how we achieve this.

1. Bring in the Experts


It all starts with top quality ingredients perfectly blended by people who care about what they do. People with a passion. That’s why we employ experts in their respective fields. We value top quality messages, graphically engaging content and seamless delivery. We made it our mission quite some time ago to involve subject matter experts in the writing of our eLearning materials so that you are guaranteed the best sources of knowledge in these hard to understand areas. We then take any legal/technical jargon and make it human. We make it relatable and bitesize, super easy to understand so that your employees don’t have to swallow a dictionary or obtain a law degree to understand our content.

Once the script is complete, we pass it on to our creative department and let the imaginations set into overdrive. Our creatives comprise of a talented bunch with years of experience in delivering memorable visual content across a variety of media, including television and broadcasting. Once the visual elements are complete, it is passed on to our highly skilled instructional designers who have experience in teaching and creating valuable learning experiences. They get to work on building the content into a neat eLearning parcel. You may think at this point we would be happy to put the product on the shelf so to speak, but not just yet. The almost finished product still has to gain the approval of our software and UX testing team. Think of them as our quality control. These guys take no prisoners in ensuring that what the customer is left with is one clear, concise, seamless experience no matter what size of course.

2. Top Quality Graphics

We’re talking nothing you’ve ever seen the likes of before in terms of eLearning. We treasure the value of sophisticated design and the levels of entertainment and engagement you can experience amongst your employee base when you let a team of multi-talented graphic/motion designers and animators do their thing. Our Creatives have developed their own unique in-house style so you know what you’re getting is not available on the market anywhere else. Our guys are always on top of their game when it comes to new techniques, software’s and design trends so you can be sure the content you’re receiving is current and up to speed with the latest developments in the field of design. Ever the group of perfectionists, there shalt not be a pixel out of place. 

3. High Quality Video

Contrary to popular belief, perpetuated by the amount of eLearning content on the market containing PowerPoint style slides with reams of endless text and overly enthusiastic looking faces clutching signs, our eLearning defies the norms featuring high quality video content wherever is humanly possible. And to let you in on a secret, our ‘slide’ material weaved throughout is also so engaging and well animated it is often confused for video amongst our dedicated testing team and our customers!

4. Interactive gamified content

We laugh in the face of anyone who says cyber security is a mind-numbing topic to educate others about. This may be true of other eLearning vendors but with us we view cyber security as a challenge not an impossibility to bring to life, and we always succeed. This is made all the more possible by the inclusion of interactive scenarios and games. Want to get people really engaged? Want to make sure they remember what you’re paying for? Make it into a real life contextual game! You’re guaranteed higher engagement levels and applicable learning experiences that stick.

5. Beautiful navigation

We’ve invested quite a lot of time recently in revamping our course menu system to ensure that the navigation is streamlined, user friendly and visually appealing. With inspiration taken from popular online streaming services our new navigation system is right up there with the best of the best. Sleek, modern and quick to use. The result? Happy employees who are both pleasantly surprised and excited from the word go instead of confused and frustrated trying to find out where to even begin their learning experience.

6. Our own super-efficient Learning Management System

Just when you thought we had ticked all the boxes, we have another trick up our sleeve on offer. Our very own custom-built Learning Management System (LMS) is specifically designed to run our high-quality eLearning courses with minimal to zero delays. Of course, if your business has its own LMS we are more than happy to work with you on implementing our material into that system, however if you don’t or the bandwidth is not quite up to scratch, fear not! Our trusted LMS has been keeping our loyal customers happy for years providing seamless delivery all from one secure system.
