Somatic Senses contacted us to help them set up a Learning Management System to compliment their existing live classes with online material. When working with more complex WordPress setups we generally recommend managed hosting platforms that have the option of a "staging" site for testing. We moved their site to WPEngine and set up the eLearning functionality. Then we filmed a live class to capture lectures and photos (from the video) for the course content. This process allows instructors to spend less time lecturing on theory and spend more time with hands on practical instruction and dialogue. At the end of the course we captured such a great testimonial it had to be turned into a video of it's own.
The Vancouver School of Healing Arts was combining 3 sites into one. The initial design of the new site was complete and Info2grow was brought in to complete the responsive design as well as perform the switch over and redirects required to merge the sites. Once this was complete our next phase was to implement and eLearning solution so they could sell online courses as well as inserting on-site contracts with digital signatures into the checkout process. Soon we will tie in a social aspect with forums that will allow students to communicate and continue their learning outside of course material. VSOHA staff are very tech savvy and like to manage the site and add new functionality in house and we are happy to help them do just that when needed.
Learn with Diane Lee
eLearning, Photography, Print, Video Production, Web Development
Diane Lee is a world renowned physiotherapy practitioner, instructor and author. She does all this while managing her own busy clinic in South Surrey. Even with all this on the go Diane always takes the time to ensure we understand the whys and wherefores of each project before getting started and then gives us the creative freedom and constructive feedback to ensure it's success. Our first project together was a Learning Management System (LMS) to deliver her online training and support her live classes. The site (which now boasts thousands of registered users from around the world) was called Learn with Diane Lee, not Learn 'from' but 'with', this preposition says a lot about what its like to work with her and the rest of her team. Since that first project we have helped Diane put together multiple online courses and assessments, animated instructional videos, social media marketing campaigns, photographed her live classes, created business cards, letterhead, certificates and even an interactive book (see below). There's a lot of mutual respect and trust when we work together, it's very collaborative and we're thankful to be a part of the Learn with Diane Lee team.
Jo Abbott wanted to move her eLearning platform from Mindflash to a more open and configurable WordPress based LMS. Jo heard about us from Diane Lee and having used Diane's site in the past she knew she wanted a similar system of her own. We created a new website for her with the desired functionality, set up her courses, did some minor rebranding, and configured the eCommerce platform. Jo was quick to learn how to use the system and we are consistently impressed with the amount of new content she has created whenever we visit the site. Jo knows if she ever runs into a problem we are just a call or email away. We are currently working with Jo on the addition of a system to generate custom health reports for practitioners and patients.
Diastasis Rectus Abdominis

Diane Lee is an accomplished author but for her next book she wanted something a bit different. The idea was that readers could access online videos via scanning QR Codes with their phones or tablets. We said we could could make this happen. Diane asked us if we could do the layout and design as well and help her publish it herself. Here's where the mutual trust things comes in again. We told her we had never done a book before but we knew how to it, we could integrate it with the LMS and that we'd heard of a few print on demand publishers that we could look into. She said great and started sending us copy and images. Info2grow did the book layout and design, filmed practical demonstration videos and integrated them into her eLearning site. Readers scan one code to register (allowing us to keep content protected) and then each code in the book takes them directly to the related video on the site. Diane also wanted to self publish the book so we found Blurb.ca who allowed us to set the book up as a print on demand product. Everyone was happy with the finished result but when a team works well together that's kind of a given.
Mark Finch has been a body worker since 1996. Mark is a dynamic presenter and an all around fun guy to be around. Mark contacted us to build an online Learning Management System that would help him organize his course offerings and provide prep and support to students attending live classes. After we did some photography sessions at classes he taught with our good friend Diane Lee, we knew those images would be a big part of the site. Mark creates a really great atmosphere for learning and we wanted to showcase that to let students know what they could expect from a class. Now Mark has a single system where he can market his courses, organize prep and support materials, manage and communicate with students, and share useful information that helps his fellow clinicians. Oh and he has a cool accent too!
RAD Mobility Training

When our friends at RAD contacted us they were in the early stages of planning their online training program. Together we helped them to help choose a platform (Litmos in this case) and develop the training content. Info2grow worked closely with the Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) at RAD to help organize the content, create presentations, capture and produce both lectures and instructional videos. We then configured the LMS and content to match their brand, setup courses, page layout and evaluations. Info2grow also currently helps RAD create social media content by capturing and editing an ongoing series of quick-turnaround instructional videos. Always a blast to work with this team!
Special Olympics Canada
eLearning, Web Development
We were contacted by the IT provider for Special Olympics Canada to make changes and updates to a legacy platform for their online coaching portal. The content was built with Flash Builder and the original files were gone. It was our job to reverse engineer it back to source code, make changes to the functionality, create new database connections, repackage, install and test the updated system. This saved the client from having to rebuild from scratch allowing those funds to be better put to use where they were needed. The moral of the story here is if it can be fixed, debugged, decompiled or salvaged we can handle it. We love a challenge!
