About Us Section
Here at Day One we combine an in-depth understanding of learning psychology and best practices with the latest elearning technologies to create training solutions that really work.
We’ve taken the view that most elearning is too static or too gimmicky, so we’ve concentrated our resources on providing rich but highly practical content that yields measurable results.
An important part of our company mission is to build structured, open learning content and systems which allow for easy maintenance, updating and renewal – something we recognise as an important issue for clients.
Truly engaging and cost-effective elearning is what we always strive to deliver. It’s in our DNA.
The Team Section
Day One Technologies was founded in 1997, and we’re still here because we’ve built long-term client relationships based on their success.
Here are some of our core team:
