Induction from Open Elms

e-Start Induction

Open ELms can be supplied with a tailored e-learning induction (e-induction) called e-Start.

An e-Start induction is created in 5 separate steps:

1. Information Gathering

We work with you to gather all the information needed from your organisation that is suitable for a standard induction course.

2. Branding

The branding and overall look and feel is agreed and demonstrated to the client via an induction prototype.

3. Script

This is produced and then presented for sign-off.

4. Testing and Sign-Off

The final induction is installed on the Learning Management System and then tested and signed off. We find that an e-start induction always exceeds expectations.

5. Maintenance

The e-learning is delivered with Jackdaw CMS software which can be used to always keep the e-induction up to date.

As an organisation you may already have a clear idea of what information you would like to present at the induction, on the other hand you may have the information within a number of different sources (Power Point presentations, training manuals, the company website etc.)

Whatever your state of readiness, e-Start can work with you to ensure that all the appropriate materials are available to start writing a script.

The information architecture of every company should be reflected in the induction. This includes the core corporate colours, an animated introduction, the look and feel of your company personnel (reflected in the choice of actor used as a presenter etc.) and the complexity of the language used in the presentation.

The example above reflects agreed signed off branding reflected in the menu and top bar of the induction.

The script will contain all information that will be included on screen, marking separately any text that will be narrated by the on-screen presenter or using voiceover. It is important to design the induction in a way that messages that are likely to change are not part of the presenter's script as this will otherwise lead to costly changes in the future.

Whatever your state of readiness, e-Start can work with you to ensure that all the appropriate materials are available to start writing a script.

Once developed, the course is installed on the Learning Management System, then presented to the client for a final sign-off. As part of e-Start's standard terms and conditions the client can change up to 5% of topics for new designs at no additional cost.

The client is given the Content Management Software - Jackdaw CMS - which is used to alter any text, videos and images within the induction after delivery of the e-learning. The software is simple to used and requires no prior programming experience etc.


The cost for a bespoke e-start induction starts at £8,500/$12,750 and this includes all you need to create, run and maintain an e-learning induction. Thee-Start induction is also available as part of the membership service:

  • An e-learning induction course consisting of 12 topics
