About us

We're an independent e-learning consultancy, specialising in the provision of innovative and cost-effective e-learning for professional bodies, charities, membership organisations and corporates.

We've built a strong reputation for identifying cost-effective solutions and delivering important projects on time. Like these...

We combine strategic know-how and technical expertise with genuine enthusiasm and a can-do attitude. We're equally happy getting hands-on with a project — working with subject matter experts or designing course materials — or delivering reports or presentations to senior teams.

Here are some of the services we offer.

E-learning development

We specialise in building engaging, interactive digital learning assets in Articulate Storyline and Articulate Rise. Whether you'd like us to lead the project or just provide some additional resource to make sure you meet an important deadline, we'll be happy to help.

Instructional design

Designing educational content for effective online delivery is part art, part science. Let us apply our extensive experience of instructional design to knock your content into shape.

Strategic consultancy

Impartial and practical advice on technology and suppliers, educational programme design and efficient e-learning development processes to guide and support you and your organisation.


We offer training in Articulate Storyline and Rise to help our clients maintain and create their own e-learning courses. We also provide training in instructional design to subject matter experts, to help them design their content in the most effective way for online delivery.

Our work

We've worked on hundreds of e-learning projects over the years, creating courses for everyone from accountants and barristers to electricians and call centre staff.

We've built courses to help learners prepare for exams, develop soft skills, learn how to use new IT systems, handle customers effectively and further their professional development.

Our clients tell us that we're responsive, knowledgeable and professional, with an ability to solve and explain problems and get things done.

Here are some of the organisations we've worked with.

Cardinal Learning is owned and managed by David Carr, an independent e-learning consultant with over 20 years' experience in the professional education market as tutor, innovator and senior manager. David was formerly Director of e-Learning and Innovation at BPP Professional Education with board level responsibility for e-learning strategy and delivery at one of Europe's largest professional education providers.

What's in a name?

Oh yes, we often get asked about the company name. Our inspiration comes from when we worked in New England and were captivated by the stunning flash of colour from a Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis Cardinalis) as it flew into our snowy garden. Just like this quirky bird, we love to brighten up someone's day and put a smile on their face.
