Wrexham County Council

We were looking for an e learning developer who could put together an e learning module for us at short notice on a tight budget. Gareth listened to what we wanted and responded quickly. He kept in touch throughout the project, was friendly and easy to work with and delivered the goods.
I would like to thank Gareth for his excellent work.

Coleg Sir Gar

We contracted e-Development to work in collaboration with us on a project that assessed the skills of Welsh Language learners. After one of our internal developers became ill and was unavailable due to long term health issues, Gareth stepped in promptly and was extremely flexible in supporting us to meet tight deadlines. Gareth went above and beyond to juggle existing work within his own company to ensure the product was delivered to an extremely high standard. The platform has received extremely high praise and most of this is down to the design and interactions developed by Gareth. Not only would I recommend Gareth to others but am looking forward to working with him again on a similar project.

We were looking for an eLearning business with a human touch, someone who really knew their stuff and could support our business with the right advice and direction and not just churn out some eLearning.

Gareth has been fantastic in this role, proving that he understands learning and the methodology behind eLearning as well as what’s right and what’s wrong when it comes to delivery! He’s all the good stuff (punctual and quick to respond etc) but he’s also excellent at delivering eLearning and we’ve been very happy with his output.

Age Cymru Swansea Bay

Since working with Gareth the staff and volunteers at Age Cymru Swansea Bay have really benefited from being able to engage in effective training within short time slots that fit in with their busy workload.

As an organisation we have improved the knowledge and skills of our workforce and reduced the cost of training overall.

Working with Gareth is simple, we pitch what we want our workforce to learn and he produces a fully interactive module. It takes very little time and goes into delivery in weeks.

E-learning is the way ahead for Age Cymru Swansea Bay.

Celsa Group

I was recommended Gareth through a previous business colleague when discussing the need for an e-learning authoring service. I value this person’s assessment of people and everything Gareth has delivered to date over the short business relationship we have so far co-created has reached the same level of value.

Gareth’s previous training delivery career allows him to see and hear performance problems for which he then creates an e-learning solution. Our discussions never fail to include searching and insightful questions that challenge ones assumptions often resulting in refinement and improvements to the e-product and my learning & development service to the customer in general.

We have now gone live and the customers reaction and evaluation of our contractor induction product has been very positive. Simpler & quicker process yet retaining achievement of original aim and objectives. Gareth continues to be available in real time to monitor any minor systems issues. 100+ learners now completed with no major issues as we work toward the overall goal of reducing our accident frequency rate through improved health & safety performance.

Carmarthenshire County Council

It was a pleasure to work with e-Development on the production of e-learning modules detailing “A Diverse Carmarthenshire.” Our meetings were focused and all information was prepared according to timescales.

Gareth was able to introduce new learning techniques and design features, to ensure that learners are engaged in the content. It was also very important for us that the modules were designed to work in Welsh and English and Gareth ensured that the design work was bilingual throughout.

Thank you very much for your hard work and patience and for working to our deadlines.

Carmarthenshire County Council

Gareth was recommended to me by a colleague who had commissioned an E-learning module on Equalities. I work as a Regional Community Cohesion Co-ordinator for Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire County Councils. I planned to have two E-learning modules produced; one on Hate Crime and the other on Community Cohesion.

Gareth kept in regular contact with me via telephone calls, email and a number of meetings during the development of the modules.

Gareth built upon my initial briefing by conducting further research. This set a firm foundation for the development of the modules. Gareth identified the key points and was able to succinctly summarise the relevant information from two extensive areas of interest. This information was presented in an attractive and interactive way which also had a coherent narrative and developing themes.

Gareth was also able to relate the information to the person undergoing the training. I was also pleased that Gareth kept in touch with me during the production of the e-learning. This enabled me to have an input into the development of the modules and also kept me fully up to speed with their development. I am very happy with the completed modules, which I am sure will be of great use to training our staff.

I am very pleased to recommend Gareth Harris and E-Development to any prospective clients.

e-Development e-learning testimonial - e-academy

I engaged Gareth to partner on delivery of a project rolling out an e-learning module to a client with 10,000 plus personnel. From the initial project brief, meetings to discuss the project in depth and test material created; at all times I found Gareth to be highly professional with a wealth of experience and ideas on creating e-learning material.

The deadlines for project delivery were stretching and Gareth delivered time after time, exceeding the clients expectations with the finished product.

The completed project has been met with fantastic feedback and I would have no hesitation partnering with Gareth moving forward or recommending anyone to engage him to create material for their business.

Gareth has been an absolute pleasure to work alongside.

e-Development e-learning testimonial - Bullies Out

Gareth is very experienced and knowledgeable about e-learning and understands exactly what you want. When I approached Gareth, all I had was pages of information which I wanted to turn into an anti-bullying e-learning for parents. Gareth’s expertise has transformed my documents into an excellent online course which I am sure many parents will benefit from. Gareth has brought our project to life.

As a person, Gareth is a considerate, genuine person and I would recommend him without reservation

Lean Man System

Gareth has recently put all the nutrition education for the LEAN MAN SYSTEM into an e-learning format that compliments my face to face sessions. He has made each module unique and also very interactive and engaging.

Throughout the months that Gareth has worked on this project he has kept in close communication and made sure each module was achieving its objective. He has been very flexible and when I have asked for changes from the original design he has been able to quickly accommodate all my requests (and believe me I changed my mind a number of times).

I now have a very saleable product that runs smoothly and has the look and feel that I expect all my products to generate.

I would highly recommend Gareth’s work to any prospective clients as you can be assured of getting the product you request on time and be secure in the knowledge that it will meet your particular requirements exactly.
