Hershey Medical Center. The Multimedia Specialist can employ their skills to convert standard learning materials into digital learning programs.

Free consultation includes:
  • Overview of the process
  • Advice on eLearning best practices
  • Rough estimate of time for development based on provided content. Time estimate is subject to change as project develops.  

*A consultation does not guarantee immediate service assistance.
