How building an integrated LMS and AI chat interface to helped to better disseminate information on the illness to the public at large

Visit Site


We developed an interactive, online educational tool for the Alzheimer Society, Alberta/Northwest Territories to help their community learn about living with dementia and caring for people with dementia. We created custom course pathways and allowed users to personalize their learning experience, save courses and collect course completion certificates.

Building on the popularity of the ASANT Cafe, a digital learning platform for people living with dementia, the Alzheimer Society sought support to create the next version of the resource, making a simple and user-friendly online platform for learning about dementia. This included creating a personalized online course and refreshed brand identity for a brand new learning experience, HelpForDementia. Our challenge was to create a platform that prioritized accessibility, creating a simple way for people living with or impacted by dementia to continually learn about dementia and find support along every point of their journey.

The primary measurement for the success of this site was its ease of of use among people of all ages and abilities. Since launch, we've seen a tremendous amount of growth, both on internal metrics (quality of the site, user flows, etc.), strong initial metrics for month-over-month growth in the SERPs, time spent on site and interactivity metrics. We anticipate that, as the use of this resource becomes more widespread, these numbers will grow even further.Now, Paper Crane is assisting the Alzheimer Society in a strategy to communicate and market this new resource to its network and beyond.
