Training formats

Our productions can be categorised in four different training formats. Each format represents a specific approach on how to train a target group.

About the self-study format

Self-studies have so far been the most common way to use digital technology for training programs. A self-study is aimed for one user, using one computer, independent of time and place. The program is accessible via the Internet, an intranet or a learning management system. It is often referred to as "e-learning".


A self-study can include interactivity, video-filmed sequences, game-based elements or be story-driven. These elements are defined by the learning concept. The length of a training production could be anything from ten minutes to four hours.

A self-study can include interactivity, video-filmed sequences, game-based elements, simulations or role-play stories.

Area of application

Self-studies are good for teaching basically any knowledge. It is excellent for users that work on their own. Self-studies are difficult to use in trainings that involves a change of attitude or behaviour. The learning effect may not be retained in the same degree as in a training solution that involves other people.


For larger target groups, the cost-per-user for self-studies is very low. Compared to our other training formats, the cost per ”learning minute” is higher.
