Smart Content workshops

Our Smart Content workshop is one our our most popular starting points for companies looking to future-proof their content catalogue for new learning products.

For many content producers, the content library (or “backlist”) is a valuable asset that was acquired over many years of investment. Protecting and leveraging that asset is important. Getting your content structure correct now can save huge costs later, and offer flexibility and speed when creating new learning products in the future.

Our workshops are tailored to each client. Here is an example of a workshop agenda focused on Smart Content.
