Digital Learning in a Digital World
Education, training, and skills development are critical to organizational success, and must be addressed with competent, well designed learning solutions.

Kind Words From Our Clients
Andrew tutored me during a challenging course with HTML and CSS. He was always so helpful and patient with challenging ideas and new learning. He was super knowledgeable about both topics and basically helped me pass a class that was a huge barrier for me to graduate.I'd definitely use him again if I needed help with this topic. Thanks Andrew!!
I have had the joy of working with owner Andrew Forbes on several projects over the years. He has been easy to work with, patient, and attentive, bringing confidence and a good sense of humour to his work. He takes the time to ask questions and understand his clients and projects, and demonstrates the rare quality of being both driven and low-pressure in his approach. I highly recommend working with Andrew and his team.
Andrew was very responsive to my needs, helping with developing my website for on-line learning. I especially appreciated his creating training videos for me so I could make changes, load new content and other additions on my own. I highly recommend his services.
I have had the opportunity to work with Andrew for more than eight years. He is a talented web designer with a high level focus on curriculum, understanding and delivering precisely what you require. He is professional, engaging, and I have enjoyed working with Andrew immensely.
I worked with Peak Ed on a few curriculum projects. The team supported my vision for each project. Andrew brought high level pedagogy, innovative curriculum design and 'out of box thinking'. He drafted general learning outcomes using blooms taxonomy to measure assessments. He suggested specific learning outcomes and developed face to face/online learning activities. Andrew's commitment to education allowed my projects to be developed in a timely manner. I highly recommend Peak Ed Designs for all curriculum and online projects. Thanks Andrew, appreciate your hard work!
