Discovery

Our partnerships begin with a discussion with an author candidate.

This ensures your goals as an author are in line with our capabilities. Fill out the following form, and we'll get in touch with you to schedule a discovery session.

 

Following the discovery session, we’ll determine whether Great River Learning is a good fit for your project. If so, we’ll create a publishing agreement and move forward with a project planning meeting. This meeting gives us a chance to brainstorm, conceptualize the publication’s goals, scope and create an editorial schedule. We’ll then compile the ideas and pedagogical structure into a blueprint. It’s at this point that we’ll both collectively have enough information to determine if it makes sense to proceed.

 

If the answer is “yes,” we’ll both sign-off on the blueprint and start development.

Develop

We'll bring a number of resources to the table for you, and that starts with our experienced professionals.

From web designers and copy editors to programmers and developers, consider our team your team throughout the process. Each project is assigned a Web Project Editor. They will work with our entire editorial team to facilitate copyediting, permission clearance, design, layout, and the development of interactive exercises.

 

Once we have enough content, the Web Project Editor will present a chapter prototype to ensure we are all on the same page with organization and aesthetics. You'll also have the ability to program new functionalities during this phase.

Launch

Once all of the content has been collected and developed, we're ready to launch.

Students can purchase access to their print and/or online publication at the bookstore or directly through our website. We provide training and support to students as needed.

Enhance

We see your project as a long-term evolution, not just a one-shot event.

That's why even after launch, we'll continue to work with you to make enhancements to your publication to make sure we're achieving your goals.

 

We always encourage getting feedback from students to determine what's working well and what needs to be improved. We'll also conduct internal reviews which focus on instructional design, student interaction, learner support and resources, and usability.

 

As with the initial development, we'll work with you to assess any changes or updates, prioritize next steps, and establish a development and implementation plan.

Market

We start by using what we've learned through feedback and identity the top two or three "features" that differentiate us to create marketing material. Marketing materials may include print and/or an online ad piece plus a demonstration version available through our content delivery system.
