Online course building for IB DP sciences

We worked with a publisher on their online IB DP Science course, helping with reviews, builds, artwork creation and accessibility.

Project details

We were initially contracted as subject matter experts to check the accuracy of IB DP Science assessment content on an online learning platform. This involved reviewing written content, artwork briefs and artworks to ensure that all questions were scientifically accurate and at an appropriate level for IB students.

As the project progressed, our client found themselves struggling for internal resource, and they could see that our adaptable team of editors and content specialists would be able to offer value beyond just the SME checks. As the project reached its final stages, we found ourselves overseeing the complete build of content, including editorial review, artwork and alt text creation, and build into the online platform.

As with all projects we work on, much of the drive behind this progression of tasks came from our adaptability and our specialism in being able to offer bespoke and efficient workflows, such that we were able to use the same small-but-agile team for a range of tasks, without needing any external support or management.

The client has since asked us to take on similar work for an upcoming Maths course, and we are excited to continue working with the team in this way on a new project.
