Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy

On behalf of Echelon Learning, Wordhouse managed the design, authoring, editing, desktop publishing, production and distribution of over 2,000 hours’ worth of text-based open learning material for CIPFA, the leading public sector accountancy body. The materials comprised open learning study guides, revision guides, question banks and textbooks for each of the ten examinations (plus case study and project) which CIPFA students must pass to qualify for membership of their professional body. More than 5,000 A4 pages of learning materials were developed, at the equivalent of first year degree level, and they were updated by Wordhouse annually.

Henley Business School

During the initial development of its e-learning MBA programme, by its in-house development team, Henley Business School called on Wordhouse to help. Wordhouse’s role was to copy-edit the materials for grammar, punctuation, consistency and conformity to house style. On certain modules, more substantive editing was involved, to ensure that the materials met HMC’s stringent requirements concerning technical accuracy and narrative style. Finally, Wordhouse identified materials requiring copyright clearance. The first modules came out on time.

Eight e-learning modules were produced over an intensive eighteen month period.

Global university textbook publisher

One of the world's largest publishers of unversity textbooks asked Wordhouse to help design and develop its new e-learning courses aimed at degree-level students in business and management. Wordhouse helped at the instructional design stage and subsequently commissioned, managed and edited the material ready for handover to the publisher's e-learning production vendor. Eight e-learning modules, comprising well over a million words of text, were produced over an intensive eighteen month period.

University of Bedfordshire

The Business School, one of the largest faculties within this rapidly developing University, commissioned Wordhouse to develop and produce modular study guides for different versions of its e-learning MBA. Wordhouse is currently involved in the revision and updating of the study guides.
