1. “We contracted The Wired Schoolhouse to customize an e-learning module for the TTC in order to meet the AODA Customer Service Standard.  

Brian and Ken worked relentlessly to align their tasks with the TTC's extremely tight deadlines, specifically, they were well organized and thorough when filming or photographing the different employees or actors at various work locations.  Overall, they worked diligently to complete this project on time, and they did so with a great sense of humour."

“Hi Brian,
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done! It was a pleasure working with you and your staff on the creation of Accessible Services for Colleges - Customer Service Standard. The end product is one that I think we can all be proud of. I was especially happy that I could report to my team that the project came in on time and on budget! I appreciate your professional approach. The knowledge of your instructional designer, Ken, was a tremendous asset. Your commitment to the rights of people with disabilities under the A.O.D.A. I believe was reflected in the quality of work you provided. I certainly hope that we have the opportunity to work together again in the near future.”

The Wired Schoolhouse transformed a modest project into a major national initiative.
Over the past two years, Disruptor has had the great good fortune to work with this extraordinary eLearning firm. Originally a small project, it enjoyed a level of professional consideration normally reserved for much larger initiatives. That attention made all the difference.

The Wired Schoolhouse brings the highest level of expertise to the development of unique, effective eLearning. They apply unusually rigorous standards to their work: the content, specifics of delivery style and methods as well as to more prosaic matters like budget and delivery schedule. And unusually thorny content challenges are met with unusually creative and unorthodox solutions.
Then there is their enthusiasm. The energy and spirit they bring to their work is both infectious and critical. When a project heads into its homestretch, a team weariness can set in that makes the ‘good enough’ seem attractive. The Wired Schoolhouse demands the best from themselves and for the project – and persists endlessly, usually with high humour, to inspire the
client team to soldier on to a final, excellent product.
