CASE STUDY: E-LEARNING STARTUP

Background

The COVID-19 pandemic has been devastating and changed almost all daily routines, and strict quarantine rules put in place by governments have shed light on how critical remote work and education have become. Nearly a third of college students currently take classes remotely, and that number is sure to increase. Having an online portal where students can access the courses and content they need is a must. However making sure all the content is accurate and up to date can be quite a challenge, and finding a qualified content creator who is adept in the material needed requires a significant amount of time and money. Another option your organization could explore is contacting a top technical content writing services company, such as Essential Data Corporation, with different types of technical writers, that are well versed in many different fields, saving time and money.

Client Need

A new e-learning startup acquired significant initial funding and had its website all designed and developed out, but they still needed technical writers to create the content. The content they needed was extremely varied and covered such topics as outer space, blockchain programming, to the issues about starting up a health care company. Despite having massive start-up capital, hiring full-time technical writers would have been too costly. The charge of finding and interviewing qualified technical writers, covering the wide-ranging topics, was also creating delays in the launch of the site. Recognizing these issues with the launch, the startup contacted Essential Data Corporation.

EDC Solution

Essential Data Corporation was able to work with the content manager of the start-up by presenting them with a field of well-qualified technical writers. Even with all the various topics the start-up needed to cover, EDC was able to locate the appropriate technical writers much faster than if it had searched with its HR group. The writers from EDC were also contracted writers, so the company only had to pay each writer per job, instead of hiring full-time writers, saving the organization money as well.

Benefits for the Client

With well-constructed content from EDC’s pool of technical writers, the e-learning startup was able to launch its site on time and under budget. The startup was so impressed that they continue to have a relationship with EDC, contacting EDC whenever they have new topics to cover knowing that the new content will be accurate, on time, and under budget.  No matter how varied the content, EDC has the expertise to supply technical authors from all backgrounds, helping your organization from start-up through launch and beyond.
