With program design, you can inspire the deepest and most memorable learning possible. Unlike individual training courses, learning programs leverage multiple events and learning mediums.


Persimmon designs interactive eLearning content to provide a greater impact for the organization. Together, we can help learners gain and absorb knowledge faster, on their unique schedule.

Develop Training that Translates into REAL Results.

Our team can help you create experiences, visuals, and interactions that have an emotional impact for deeper learning. We failure-proof your results by leveraging feedback from the learners themselves at all stages of the process.

Nothing Makes Us Happier than Happy Clients!

  • Absolutely blown away.“We were absolutely blown away by what the Persimmon Group was able to do within our budget. As a non-profit organization, we are always trying to stretch our dollars as far as we can. The value we got from working with the Persimmon Group on our Instructional Design project vastly exceeded our expectations.”Sara Hicks, Scor3card® CoordinatorSustainable Tulsa
  • Quality services.“The Persimmon Group has provided us with several quality services for over 10 years--one of them being instructional design. This skillset is not easily executed because it requires familiarity with the company, its employees, and its culture. Whether large or small, TPG has consistently delivered quality content on time and even ahead of schedule. The TPG team takes time to understand the required learning objectives for the intended audience infused with the latest methodologies for effective learning.”Joel DoughertyVP, Human Resources & EHS, The NORDAM Group

Get Started


How long will it take?2021-07-19T22:57:54-05:00

We work with you to strategically apply your team’s time. The amount of time required varies depending on the project; however, we love helping you achieve better results faster and more easily. We also believe in setting clear and reasonable expectations, defining up front the amount of involvement from your team to ensure they know and can plan accordingly.

Do we need to have content ready to start, or can you work directly with our SMEs to develop training?2021-07-19T22:58:16-05:00

The Persimmon Group team can do either. We can work directly with your SMEs gathering their knowledge to build new training from the ground-up or we can leverage content you already have collected to begin the design process.

Do we have to provide all the learning content?2021-07-19T22:58:35-05:00

From our nearly twenty years of designing learning, depending on the topic, we often have content available that can be utilized to jumpstart the development of your learning content.

What will an project like this cost?2021-08-25T17:36:11-05:00

The investment depends on a variety of factors, including the nature of the project(s), scope and estimated time involved. For a custom quote, book a complimentary discovery call with one of our experts.

Will I own the finished content and be able to make updates in the future on my own?2021-07-19T22:59:14-05:00

Absolutely! We provide you with the final learning deliverable as well as the original design files so you can make future updates as you see fit.

What tools does Persimmon use for developing eLearning modules?2021-07-19T22:59:32-05:00

We utilize multiple tools to meet various project design needs, but with its robust authoring capabilities, Articulate Storyline is our go-to authoring tool for developing self-paced eLearning courses. If you need content developed with a specific tool, just let our team know when you reach out.

In what formats(s) will the final content be delivered?2021-07-19T22:59:50-05:00

The final training content can be provided in multiple formats to meet your specific needs. Instructor-Led Training materials are typically delivered in Microsoft Office formats, with videos output in the format best suited for their hosting platform. Self-paced eLearning is typically delivered in SCORM-compliant formats along with the original design files should you want to make any future updates on your own.

Will the content work with my Learning Management System?2021-07-19T23:00:07-05:00

Yes! Our eLearning modules are provided in industry standard SCORM-compliant format. Additionally, through the initial discovery process, we gather information from you on your learning environment and LMS platform requirements to ensure the final outputs are in the formats needed for your system.

What if we don’t have a Learning Management System to host content?2021-07-19T23:00:28-05:00

Not to worry! While self-paced, interactive eLearning modules do necessitate an LMS, we have multiple options for developing and providing you with learning content that does not require an LMS for deployment.

Does Persimmon film video?2021-07-19T23:00:47-05:00

If video is part of your learning solution, we have trusted partners who specialize in dynamic videography, to film new video and/or incorporate video content you have filmed already.
