We develop e-learning courses for academic education

Save time and money: let us develop courses from the content you provide!

We practise – in proper scientific tradition – evidence-based e-learning. This means that everything we use in our e-learning modules has been researched and proven effective for interactivity and improved learning.

E-learning: more than online education

E-learning is, at the very least, making course materials available online. But potentially it means more engaged learning for the student, and an emptier schedule for the professor. To maximize the potential of e-learning, we specialize in evidence-based e-learning and the use learning goals as a guide to create interactive courses that enhance understanding.

Integrate our custom-made interactive modules seamlessly into your existing BlackBoard or Moodle platform or let us advise you on the best options for a learning management system (LMS).


We guide you in the development of your course by helping you define clear learning goals, fine-tune the design and everything in between. And then we build the entire course that you can maintain and update yourself and even re-use for future courses!

We help you define the contents of your course and improve your learning goals.
We brainstorm ideas on how to make the course more interactive.
We (re)write your content to make it suitable for your students.
We make a custom user-friendly design for your course that you can re-use.
We build the entire course, so you don’t have to worry about technology.

Evidence-based practice for better learning experiences

We don’t think that pages with blocks of text, an image and a ‘forward’ button makes for quality e-learning. Therefore we rather think about the content before we transform it into motivating e-learning modules. This way we can assure that our products are based on research into the effectiveness of teaching materials and interactive elements.

We see e-learning as the ideal way to teach students skills and to stimulate them to think critically and independently at their own level.

How a University Lecturer describes our collaboration:

At Wageningen University, we have been developing interactive e-learning modules for our academic education for years now. We don’t have the technical and design know-how to build these modules, and outsourced the production of these modules to The Online Scientist. We deliver the storyboard with the contents, and they make sure it becomes a well-designed interactive module.

The best thing about cooperating with The Online Scientist is that besides their extensive knowledge on webdesign, they also know what the e-learning is about on a content level, since they have a scientific education of their own. This makes cooperating very comfortable; they sense what we mean and this ensures that they can fit the design and the content together, as well as come up with tips and suggestions that further optimize the assignments/feedback that we proposed. It is a pleasant and efficient collaboration with The Online Scientist.
