About Us

Welcome to Toronto-based Media Learning Systems, a twelve-time award-winning Canadian eLearning solutions company where you will find tomorrow's elearning, TODAY! We develop customized, highly interactive courses for K-12, corporate, government, and not-for-profit clients. Our focus is on the learner, and our courses are always designed with sound learning principles in mind. Courses and LMS environments we develop are branded with your identity (or white-labeled), and with no ongoing licensing fees or per use costs to you! You maintain full ownership of the finished product, particularly of interest to start-up companies looking to embark on new training. Our clients have gone on to have great success with their marketed products--and all for very little upfront investment. NOTE: To give back to the community, we now provide five free COVID-19 training courses in our MOODLE-based eCampus. Visit our eCampus here to learn more about this important topic.

Compelling Articulate 360 eCourses

Our core focus is on creating customized, exciting and highly immersive eLearning using the powerful Articulate suite of products. It's quite simple: Effectively designed courses produce better learning outcomes. Courses we develop engage your learners' visual, auditory and kinesthetic senses, and are built to be optimized for any device. We work with Articulate Storyline and Rise to produce rapid, cost-effective (yet striking) AODA-accessible eLearning. And if you would like sophisticated animations, explainer videos, simulations or interactive digital video added to your Storyline projects, we also do that. We are your Toronto authorized Articulate development company for a reason!
