A team of specialized reviewers will fine-tune the ideas before handing them over to our animators and designers. From here, the project will be developed and brought to life. Throughout the entire process there are QA procedures in place to ensure alignment with established educational standards. We also work to involve you during the development process so you will always have opportunity to provide feedback.
