CREATIVE IDEAS

We help you to include successful communication strategies before you submit your proposal!

MANAGEABLE DATA

We make tools that help you collect data, monitor research and visualize the results.

COMPELLING RESULTS

Make sure your hard work is noticed with a great (poster) presentation, infographic or website.

EFFECTIVE TEACHING

Save time and cultivate student enthusiasm by creating enticing e-learning courses.

How do we help scientists to disseminate the results of their research?

stap1 It starts with a scientist’s question or wish

COMMUNICATING RESEARCH

How do I inform the public about nutrition and cancer, without coming across as boring or losing nuance?

ACADEMIC TEACHING

I’m too busy to give all these theoretical lectures. Is there a way to serve my students just as well while saving me time?

PRESENTING AT A CONFERENCE

I must give an important lecture. How do I make my presentation stand out, so that I will be the talk of the day among my peers?

BY SCIENTISTS, FOR SCIENTISTS

We know how important it is to do science dissemination right. Actually, it is important enough for us to dedicate our careers to it! We are now working full-time with academics who want to create an impact with a certain audience, but who may lack the skills, time or knowledge to do so themselves.

A result to be proud of

These professors got thousands of hits on their website, cancelled their lectures and gave the ‘talk of the town’.

The Online Scientist - Voeding en Kanker - websites

Nutrition & Cancer website

Professor Ellen Kampman wanted to develop a website containing reliable evidence-based information on nutrition and cancer. It had to be an attractive website that could compete with commercial sites, but it also had to present scientific content correctly.

This resulted in the Voeding & Kanker website: a platform for questions about this difficult subject that provides the most recent scientific insights without being boring or patronizing. The website now serves thousands of visitors a day, and is recommended by health professionals as a good source of information.

E-learning in education

Professor Kees de Graaf was giving the same, annual theoretical lectures about sensory research. He didn’t see the added value of giving them anymore, and the students were not very enthusiastic in their feedback either.

The solution we had for him was an e-learning course. We transformed the content of the lecture into interactive assignments and questions that the students could complete in their own time. This resulted in an emptier schedule for the professor, while the students showed an improved understanding of the difficult matter.

Lecture Prof. Frans Kok

For every highly regarded scientist there comes a time to say goodbye – mostly semiofficial – when the superannuation starts. With his experience in giving lectures he thought he knew how his farewell address should look. He was very conscious about the potential impact of such a lecture, so he naturally wanted to maximize the result.

We helped Frans with the design of this slides, by providing him with a formatted design, and also assisting him in which information to put on the slides. This resulted in a worthy presentation that was a hot topic during the party.

HOW THEY LIKED THE RESULTS:

We feel that The Online Scientist was a tremendous help in the making of this attractive website.<br/>Stephan provided direction in answering the questions; what is the level of the reader, how do you structure your message and what are the traits of a readable article? Liesbeth made sure the design, content and navigation of the website was complementary to the content.

Prof. Ellen Kampman and Merel van Veen, Wageningen University

Thanks to The Online Scientist we have been able to create a beautiful e-module in short time, and one that our students love as well. The contact with Liesbeth and Stephan was smooth and pleasant.
They were able to think along with our wishes, and the transformation of learning goals to an interactive module. I can definitely recommend this cooperation to others!

Dr. Sanne Boesveldt, Assistant Professor Sensory Science,Wageningen University

I wanted the farewell address celebrating the end of my term as a professor Nutrition and Health to be groomed to perfection. I thought I had enough experience in giving lectures, speeches and media appearances to be prepared for this. I asked the Online Scientist to have a quick look at it. I was rather irritated when Liesbeth pointed out all the things that could be improved, because I’d been doing this myself for years. But I found out how important the layout and catchy graphics are to get the message across to a mixed audience. They did a great job, I received many compliments from the 650 attendees.
