Personalized WordPress Solutions
A one-size fits all approach won’t work for your unique business. At Peak Ed Designs, we walk you through a discovery process to clarify your mission and goals of the website. Then, once we’ve discovered your business needs and who your ideal clients are, we design simple, web-based solutions to draw in your target market and clearly communicate the value of your business. But maintaining a great web presence doesn’t stop there, and neither do we. We offer online peace of mind with up-to-date maintenance and security for your website so you can focus on what you do best – your business.
Andrew was extremely patient and kind. His knowledge of this industry was apparent with every suggestion he made at each step of the process. He is professional and approachable and he made this entire experience fun.

Online Course Creation
Traditional brick and mortar courses can be inaccessible and expensive to both host and attend. Online courses not only streamline your teaching practice but allow you to reach new students around the world. Peak Ed Designs works with you to create a course free of traditional classroom learning roadblocks for a solution that’s better for your students and for you. Following the ADDIE model, we will consult with your stakeholders to conduct learning needs analysis for an identified target audience, complete a detail level design document to address knowledge and/or performance gaps, and develop effective training materials and learning activities with authentic assessments to promote work-ready skills on the learning management system of your choice.
Andrew developed the curriculum for the six Microsoft Office courses which we deliver to our learners both face to face and online. The reason we worked with Andrew was because of his attention to detail and his willingness to go above and beyond for the client. We continue to use Andrew for various curriculum projects.
– Charlotte Kudadirgwa – Programming Officer, Bow Valley College
Andrew designed all of the MS Office courses for my program at Bow Valley College. His innate attention to detail is impeccable. Each course is interactive among the student and instructor, he utilized lynda.com to make the course more current. He integrated discussion questions, to allow students/instructor to create a community in D2L. The assessments align with the learning outcomes for students to encompass a high cognitive domain level. Overall, I highly recommend Andrew with his high level of expertise, education and his friendliness.
