Full Tilt Ahead has served a wide variety of subject matter experts across many different teaching modes. Below is a sample of the many clients we have worked with.
FTA converted UVA’s Course Design Institute, a 5-day, in-person workshop experience at the University’s Center for Teaching Excellence to an interactive online personally adaptive learning experience to accommodate growth in popularity of the course. We continue to update and enhance the course based on new research, considerations for teaching in an online environment, and new functionality.
FTA is the exclusive instructional design team for the Emory School of Nursing, managing over 350 Canvas courses annually. FTA applies our expertise to enhance the aesthetics, organization and pedagogical best practices to every nursing course across every program offering.
Full Tilt Ahead serves as the exclusive instructional design team for Emory Nursing’s Professional Development Center: Emory Nursing Experience (ENE). We film and master lecture videos, develop and publish podcasts, and build rich media interactive courses using tools such as Articulate Rise and Articulate Storyline. FTA also manages and maintains ENE’s Canvas LMS, which is optimized for delivery of high-end courses for nursing professionals.
Since 2016, Full Tilt Ahead has been the instructional design partner that the Colorado Community College System has tapped to build high quality OER courses. For CCCOnline, Full Tilt Ahead has both worked with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) identified by CCCS as well as hired SMEs to help build courses.
Grant-funded Digital Learning Projects
Supported, in part, by the intramural research program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Full Tilt Ahead was asked to build two parallel courses to educate faculty and students on teaching and learning online in the sciences. The interactive course includes videos filmed on-site and interactive, rich-media content for Faculty and Students.
Full Tilt Ahead was approached to build an intense 4-part course that begins with a broad overview of the spectrum of translational science knowledge development from basic science to systems-based health policy and is followed by an exploration into the design and interpretation of clinical studies involving the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses among human subjects. This project, supported by a grant from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences of the National Institutes of Health
FTA led Open Education Resources compliance efforts for RevUp Montana, a consortia of community colleges with the daunting task of incorporating competency-based education principles into industry-approved curricula that were mandated to be available in Skills Commons. FTA supported curriculum mapping and OER coordination across the entire state community college system.
The Savvy Caregiver program provides caregivers of people with dementia with the tools and understanding to help them acquire and strengthen knowledge, skills, and attitudes that are appropriate for the community-based caregiving role. Full Tilt Ahead migrated a training program for trainers of caregivers from an in-person experience to a fully online, asynchronous experience.
With the success of the Savvy Caregiver program, FTA was again asked to help with other dementia caregiving-related courses such as Tele-Savvy@Home, Caregiving During Crisis, and Caregiving While Black courses through the Emory Roybal Center for Dementia Caregiving Mastery. The Royabal Center at Emory University, which promotes translation and integration of basic behavioral and social research findings through interventions to improve the lives of older adults and their families, is funded through a grant from the Edward R. Roybal Centers for Translational Research in the Behavioral and Social Sciences, supported by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) within the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in conjunction with the Emory Rollins School of Public Health, and the Emory Woodruff School of Nursing reached out to Full Tilt Ahead to update their site for teenagers with Chronic Heart Disease. The site, updated as an interactive and engaging course, includes animations, memes, and social media mock-ups that help teenagers understand the importance of transitioning from pediatric to adult chronic heart disease care.
