TFS is used in as an end-to-end tool for our clients during all phases of a project including Requirements, Project Management, Source Control, QA Process, Build Process and Reporting. This provides visibility and traceability to the whole team.
A project manager and a project coordinator will be assigned to all projects. For smaller projects the project coordinator may also double as proof reader or technical tester, once given suitable training. This allows for a quick and efficient turnaround and product delivery. Change management is handled by the project manager
Media assistants are used to do standard web builds such as W2W and Moodle and population of Dreamweaver templates. They perform a vital role and support the developers and project managers. Copyright clearance and image sourcing can also be arranged through a suitably trained media assistant.
Realware offers a full range of Moodle services including hosting, support, course design, custom development and theme design. We specialise in migrating VLE content to Moodle and migrating between Moodle versions. Moodle v1.9 will have no community support or security fixes from January 2014 so it is time to move to Moodle 2+.
Drupal website design with eye-catching and rich UIs. Developed with best-practice methodologies to ensure long-term stability, security, and future-proofed extendability.
As much as possible we use existing Drupal modules to achieve the required functionality. Any custom code adheres tightly to Drupal's coding standards and utilises existing module hooks and Drupal's APIs. The custom module's source code is standard-compliant, well-formed, commented, and documented so it's easy for anyone to make changes in the future.
Automated e-publishing is becoming a standard in e-learning development as it already has in print and web publishing.

Instant conversion from Word to Web
Our graphics designers pride themselves in producing engaging web designs with the ability to template and scale:
All projects are assigned an editor or proof reader (or both). It is essential that this team is fully briefed on Brand guidelines and writing style guide, and of course the full project specification.
All builds and assets are checked before releasing product alphas, betas and final release. Even the smallest change is checked by a second party before being released to the client. Standard test plans are used for multi-platform checks and accessibility checks. When new codes or components are being checked a custom test plan is created for each component.
When we require extra capacity (web developers, project managers, editors) or capabilities we do not hold in-house, such as 3D animations, comic strip cartoon styles or artistic illustrations, hi-end video production or highly artistic treatments, we use our freelancer list developed over 8 years to source reliable and high quality people.
