About Us

Kershner Educational Development Group helps organizations, institutions of higher education, non-profits, and schools develop eLearning capacity and creative programming solutions to meet stakeholder needs.
We are led by educators and multimedia technicians skilled in training, Instructional Design, curriculum development, project management, website design, writing/editing, and video production. We have worked with institutions of higher education, K-12 schools, non-profits, federal grant supported programs and projects, community groups, and religious organizations.


Our vision is to help organizations make positive contributions in learner’s lives through…

Adaptive and effective education and training using industry-recognized design and development models;

Specialized and pedagogically effective digital and print resources to meet stakeholder needs;

Developing cultures of safety for children and vulnerable populations.

Effective, engaging and accessible learning and development are essential to an equitable society in a rapidly changing, technological world. We understand that it can be a challenge for organizations that are consumed by present demands to also adapt to new educational paradigms. Our purpose is to guide others in the development of the programs, culture, and technologies that they need to effectively communicate their message and broaden their reach. Our goal is to create a better world through eLearning that makes a difference in people’s lives.

Together, we work to create educational resources that enhance civic engagement, empathy, safety culture, and equitable programming in high-demand fields. We combine an interdisciplinary skill set in higher education, project management, qualitative research, visual design, editing, writing, and storyboarding to achieve a broad end-to-end package of customized services.
