Health Care of Southeastern Massachusetts

HCSM is a non-profit health and human service organization serving communities across Massachusetts. High Noon Communications worked with HCSM to convert an in-person training for substance abuse professionals into an on-line training course in under two months.

While HCSM had an existing website, it had no on-line training capabilities. High Noon developed a site structure and design that meshed with the existing HCSM website while establishing an identity for the on-line training center. High Noon built the site, including on-line registration, pre- and post-testing and homework submission, and formatted and posted the weekly lectures, reading assignments, and homework questions.
