This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. As the pandemic continues, online learning is an ongoing reality for millions of students around the world. Michael Atkinson, Chief Learning Officer of Construct, an online program enablement company based in Utah, is here to talk about how they are improving courses for faculty and students on a global scale.


At Construct, we know that learning is highly personal. That’s why we take a people-first approach to learning design. We are a values-based, global Online Program Enablement company that designs and delivers rich learning experiences.

Schools and Universities, from local K-12 districts to world-renowned universities like Oxford, work with us to make their course content more engaging for students, teachers, and faculty. No one likes to take a boring class. And it’s even harder for K-12 students who are not only learning new content but also learning how to learn online.

That’s where we come in. We start with the students in mind and work with schools and colleges to design more effective and engaging content that helps students learn what their teachers intended in different and engaging ways. This is especially important as students of many ages turned to online learning this year as a way to stay home and stay safe.


The pandemic has certainly changed what the school year looks like and Construct has stepped up to improve online learning. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
