Products and Services

White Gauntlet Design offers the following services:

  • Information Design
    Information design is about organising and presenting information in a clear and effective manner.
    White Gauntlet's information design service includes analysis of material, identification of target audience, design of an organisational structure and writing of content.
  • E-Learning Design
    E-learning is training/education delivered via computer. It is typically either Web or CD-ROM based, and may use any combination of text, graphics, animation, audio and video. The best e-learning packages normally have high levels of student-computer interactivity.
    White Gauntlet's e-learning design service includes analysis of material, recommendation as to appropriate media, design of an instructional strategy, and writing of instructional content (including interactive exercises and tests).
  • Website and CD-ROM Development
    Development includes the graphic design and actual coding of a website/CD-ROM.
    Following discussions as to desired "look and feel", White Gauntlet designs a number of alternative interfaces for the product. When an interface has been agreed upon, White Gauntlet will then build the entire website/CD-ROM, including all navigation, interactions and content. User documentation can also be developed.

All White Gauntlet Design products are based on sound instructional design and usability principles.

White Gauntlet Design specialises in affordable solutions for non-profit organisations.
