Hi, I’m Mike, and I’ve decided to pursue one big idea:
That eLearning could be fun, exciting, and innovating.
I had this crazy idea that the words eLearning and interesting did not have to be mutually exclusive. That’s why I create effective solutions that are memorable and unique for each client.
Whether I’m creating a multi-part custom eLearning course for an educational institution, an explainer video using whiteboard animation for an entrepreneur, or creating compliance training to make sure it actually relates to real-world scenarios for a corporation, one thing’s for sure: when you work with SchwindTEC it will be done with style, ease, and dare I say a little fun in the process.
01. Let them practice.
The best learning activity is full of opportunities to practice what they just learned. This eLearning module taught the lost art of counting change without using a cash register or computer. Once the concept was taught, the learner had several realistic opportunities to practice counting change after various purchases. Truly, an immersive interactive activity.
02. Let them solve problems.
Effective learning involves opportunities to solve problems using the techniques just acquired. This training activity involved an animated scenario-based approach to learning new skills. The learner must solve a mysterious explosion with the assistance of animated characters acting as subject matter experts as well as on-demand resources.
03. Keep them interested.
This module presents serious content using a whiteboarding technique. Whiteboard animation presents content in a visually stimulating manner that holds the learner’s attention by leading them through the material using robust methods that easily make visual connections in the brain.
Sunflower Electric has enjoyed the relationship we have built with Mike at SchwindTEC. He is our trusted eLearning developer. We are happy with his approach to creating training that engages and is informative. SchwindTec has the ability to take a general topic and turn it into engaging content that pulls you in and makes you want more. Mike is a professional who understands adult learning principles and instructional design techniques and concepts. He delivers in a timely manner and is always pleasure to work with.
Instructional Design and Development
I first heard about SchwindTEC from an eLearning community site and reached out to Mike for his company’s help in troubleshooting some programming issues in one of our designs. The project had a quick turn-around time and Mike responded immediately. We had a solution and recommendations on improvements within the same day. The results were exceptionally professional, creative and timely, and enabled us to quickly move forward with other project requirements. Mike was delightful to work with, provided personalized service, and I highly recommend his expertise in eLearning design. Great experience!
The series of scenario-based modules that Mike developed for us turned out great, and we’ve had tons of positive feedback! I truly appreciated his willingness to work with us to create a very customized design and interface, and he's provided excellent support throughout. Thanks!

Mike effectively assessed our project need, and designed and developed an amazing multimedia product that clearly communicated our concept to our users. From our initial meeting through the revision process and receipt of the final product, I was impressed with the quality of work, the level of communication, and efficient project management!

KansasEnergyWORKS contracted with SchwindTEC to develop online energy courses for two community colleges. SchwindTEC worked diligently to overcome resistance from faculty (you can’t teach my stuff online) integrate faculty curriculum and ideas into the courses, and stay on task and on schedule despite several unforeseen obstacles. Mike continued to impress with new technology, new ideas, and continual growth in understanding customer needs.
I first hired Mike to serve a new eLearning client of ours in 2015. He was skilled at the assignment given to him and worked very well with the client SME to meet their needs. He created eLearning courses for District Managers, using Storyline and Camtasia with ease. Mike is very conscientious in his work, respects the roles of everyone involved, and meets deadlines without exception. Communication skills, business sense and a dedication to a successful outcome for everyone with skin in the game are as important as the technical skills a consultant provides. We trusted Mike, he listened to us and our client, and he did not disappoint. I will hire him again for our clients’ elearning requests.

We tapped SchwindTEC to help us manage the migration of multiple e-learning courses for a corporate wide switch to a new LMS. The requirement varied depending on the state of the module that needed updating. Mike jumped right in and followed precise specifications perfectly. In addition, he went over and beyond what was asked, helping to identify additional needs, offering suggestions and alternate treatments to make the end product even better. He delivered on time, communicated effectively and ultimately allowed us to meet our deadlines.
