Dorset Business Women Go Digital
"More and more businesses are looking for a way to take control of their own web site. Nancy delivered an excellent half day workshop as part of our Dorset Business Women Go Digital programme. She showed our delegates that it IS possible to do it yourself and provided them with really useful tips to help them design a website that does what they want it to do. They left feeling much more confident about giving it a go!"
The Further Mathematics Support Programme
"In Autumn 2014 the Further Mathematics Support Programme enlisted the services of Architela to evaluate our online provision of tuition for students and professional development for teachers. Although Architela was only presented a limited brief they were able to quickly analyse the nature of our provision and provide us with some very useful suggestions for how we might develop our online offering in the future."

"Architela has worked with the National College both in an advisory capacity on web development and the facilitation of e-learning within onlne communities for professional development. I would not hesitate to recommend Architela both for really extensive and deep knowledge of things online but also the ability to make sense of this for others. So whether you want a course written, a website designed, or are not sure what you need do call Architela."
Christine Clifford, E-Learning Specialist
"As an E-Learning Facilitator Nancy has great understanding of the interplay between learning technologies and the effect, ie helping people learn. I worked with her on a number of quality assurance reviews when she gave very helpful feedback on the particular e-learning technology in development."
Bernard Perkins, Consultant & Director of Craydene Associates Ltd
"The Tatweer New Teacher Development programme is the first teacher training programme for Saudi Arabia. At its heart is an online distance learning programme that is ambitious in its scope and conception with over 2000 screens of online learning including videos, discussions, assessments, social networking and online mentoring. Nancy Weitz has led on the development and implementation of the e-learning in a very challenging context. Her dedication, strategic thinking and commitment have been essential to the success so far of the programme."
Richard Churches, Principal Consultant
University of Bath
Faculty of Engineering and Design Distance Learning postgraduate programmes
"During the 18-month project, Dr Weitz maintained a constant and dependable presence, both in person and at a distance; as the project evolved, her ability to listen acutely and offer appropriate choices to individuals or the whole team had a fundamental effect on the direction taken and the quality of changes implemented. In addition, Dr Weitz produced three valuable and extensive reports for the DL Unit, the first of which detailed the options for change; the second outlined the experiences of others who had undertaken similar transitions, while the final report audited the project in terms of its developing aims and the quality of the outcomes. Viewed overall, Nancy Weitz’s contribution to our e-learning project has been both invaluable and indispensible."
University of Oxford

"Nancy brings a powerful academic background in her own subject combined with a good and practical knowledge of web applications and elearning. She always impressed me with the way she applied her knowledge in practical and pragmatic ways - she always demonstrated good eLearning by her own practice."
Julian Cassell's DIY Blog
"When entering a new business relationship, we all have concerns about how things will work out and whether, or not, we’ve chosen the right course of action and indeed the right people. Well, I’m giving myself a big pat on the back at the moment, because I found Nancy at Architela and she has made my entrance into the web community so much more straightforward than I had imagined. Above all, Nancy grasped pretty quickly what I wanted from a website, set things up, and got me off and running. Most importantly, she gave me the necessary tuition to run things myself, so I’m not constantly paying someone to work on the site for me. Quite simply, she knows her subject, adapts to your requirements, provides value for money, and always answers the phone! There’s nothing else I need in a business relationship."
