Company Profile

Androcom provides services at the "front end" of the interactive media development cycle, a content architect specializing in information capture, interactive design, writing and project management. Androcom specializes in developing instructional content for eLearning programs, self-paced mini-tutorials, Webinars, facilitated distance learning, and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). As a project manager, Androcom works with production companies, the builders of interactive programs, to ensure that communication and training objectives are achieved. The company's founder and president, Ken Desson, B.J., M.A., M.Ed., PMP, has been an active proponent and developer of technology-assisted learning and performance support resources for more than 25 years. Beginning with a focus on CD-ROM-based edutainment and learning materials in the early 1990s, Ken has made it his business to understand and employ each successive wave of delivery media including video-rich DVDs, multi-featured e-learning delivered on virtual campus platforms, and, most recently, the rapidly emerging possibilities presented by mobile devices, social media, online communities of practice, and MOOCs. Recognizing that each delivery medium – from hands-on workshops to mini-tutorials on tablets and Smart Phones – has its own strengths and weaknesses, Ken is noted for helping clients adopt integrated learning and performance support approaches that harness the best features of each approach to meet specific client needs. Well grounded in online learning theory and methodology, Ken brings a systematic approach to the development of learning and performance support materials, which includes identifying training and support needs, analyzing operational tasks, consulting end-users, designing instructional materials and productivity aids, writing production scripts, working with production teams, and evaluating course effectiveness. Ken is also called on to provide advice to organizations about to embark on distance learning initiatives, and to lead major distance learning projects as a qualified project manager. Ken's professional qualifications include Bachelor of Journalism, Master of Arts, and Master of Education (Distance Education) degrees, a Graduate Certificate in Knowledge Management, a Post Baccalaureate Diploma in Instructional Design, and Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. He keeps current in areas of professional interest by attending workshops, colloquiums, conferences and presentations, and by participating actively in on-line communities devoted to online learning and related topics.
