At DSA, we don't just teach the processes of innovative instructional design, we actually do it - day in and day out.

E-Learning Development


DSA has been developing computer-based solutions since 1985. Today, e-learning and blended learning approaches make up about 50% of DSA’s custom development work. Projects have varied from relatively short single topic modules, to more lengthy courses, to whole curricula for a specific job or career path.

Custom E-Learning Project Experience

  • Management training
  • Equipment technician training
  • Sales training and product knowledge training
  • Software training
  • Regulatory and compliance training
  • Support for key strategic initiatives

Six Client Examples

  1. Caterpillar University: The conversion of lab-based and instructor-led courses into a Web-based format for corporate wide distribution.
  2. Caterpillar, Inc.: A technician’s curriculum using a blended solution. The blended solution consisted of a series of asynchronous e-learning modules and four-day hands-on lab for their natural gas engine technicians worldwide.
