Lock Media works across the enterprise to bring together managers, technical leaders for in-depth resources, subject matter experts (SME's), and knowledge trainers.

Lock Media's team of consultants work with our clients through consulting engagements to determine the best practice methodology for training. This process aligns an organization's goals and objectives with the most appropriate method of content creation for the e-learning environment.
Our strategy includes the integration of:

This is all coupled with our team of media specialists who maintain an in-depth knowledge in the use of traditional and non-traditional media equipment and technology for core content capturing.
Why is it so hard to get content created by different vendors to work well online?
Even when developers use Sharable Content Object Reference Model's (SCORM) to create the programs it seems they don't work as advertised on deployment.
Is it really that complicated?
Lock Media realizes that e-learning content created by several vendors can have varying methods of delivery architecture requirements, different client plug-in requirements, and even multiple understandings of the SCORM standards that introduce complications for any learning management delivery system. Multimedia is just that — multiple formats of content distributed over multiple delivery mediums. This means you must have a thorough understanding of the requirements for both the delivery environment and the client/user environment in order to achieve the results you desire.
Lock Media has been a driving force behind understanding clients' goals, objectives, and expectations and then delivering an end-to-end solution that achieves results. We have the expertise and training to effectively implement e-learning, whether it is the client's environment or ours.
