Our history

How our story began…

2007

Our story started in April 2007, when three university graduates met to discuss their ideas about e-learning development. All of this resulted in Novitus e-learning solutions being incorporated in July 2007 in Riga, Latvia. Since then, the company has been offering custom e-learning development services to clients worldwide.

2013

We saw that rapid e-learning production is taking off, and building e-learning templates saves everyone lots of time, so we launched a spin-off project, Trivantis Lectora templates. We were struggling with marketing ideas, how to promote it, but then came our big break.

2013

We were spotted by CocaCola Enterprises EMEA, who offered us to create e-learning templates in several authoring tools for their internal needs to train 13 000 employees. This was a huge emotional boost for us – a small company from Latvia, to work for CocaCola Enterprises. We are very grateful for this opportunity, needless to say, Coke is our drink of choice in corporate parties, after beer of course.

2014

A year later we launched FasterCourse as a separate company, and we are now offering our accrued knowledge in the industry of creating templates for Articulate Storyline, Trivantis Lectora and Adobe Captivate to clients worldwide. FasterCourse has been rapidly growing ever since.

LUC 2016

We won the template of the year at Lectora User Conference in Fort Lauderdale, USA in May 2016. It was Gustav’s Trip template, and we are still super proud.

2016

We moved the office for 2 weeks in summer time from Riga (a vibrant city of around 700k inhabitants) to a beautiful fisherman’s village, and home of kite surfing enthusiasts on the Latvian West Coast – Pavilosta. And later also the Latvian rock music city Liepaja. It was an amazing experience.

2018

FasterCourse templates were included in Lectora 18. We created 6 templates for all Lectora users that everyone could access from the splash screen of Lectora 18 authoring tool.

2019

This year FasterCourse launches course templates and Adobe Captivate training program as separate products to help Instructional Designers even more.

We created a free template for COVID-19 awareness course, and this is one of the references we got. Messages like these makes us sincerely happy:

Thanks so much guys – a number of other companies have been offering access to free courses, but not the template. Perfect for me to update and add specific information from my country and company.

About_Latvia

Small on the map, big in the heart.

FasterCourse is located in Latvia. Haven’t heard about it? Well, it’s one of three Baltic states and lies on the coast of the Baltic sea. There’s about 1.92 million of us, and our official language is Latvian.

There are many amazing things to learn about Latvia. Here are just a few fun facts.

Wi-fi paradise

We are used to fast internet, as Latvia’s internet is one of the fastest in the world. The average speed is 13.8MB/s ( in the UK it is 11.6 , and in the US – 11.9).

Standing tall

Latvia has the world’s tallest women. The average height for Latvian ladies is 170 cm. The men are no shorties either, ranking fourth.

Brewers at heart

We consume 78 litres of beer per capita every year, so it’s fair to say that beer is quite special to us. We’re also proud of Sabile Wine Hill – the most northern open- air vineyard in the world.

We love jeans!

Does your go-to outfit include a pair of jeans? You can thank Latvian- born tailor Jacob Davis who invented denim In 1871, and partnered up with Levi Strauss to start production of jeans.
