Routine tasks and prolonged working hours can decrease the attention of your employees towards potential hazards. Therefore, the training on safety measures should be reinforced regularly, so that they can be cautious. For such type of reinforcement of training, eLearning or mobile learning would be ideal.
One of our customers, a leading medical equipment manufacturer identified a need for familiarizing their employees with safety measures to be followed at their workplace. They implemented classroom training and wanted to reinforce the training regularly.
To meet this need, they recognized that the best solution would be to provide online training to their employees world wide. To take this one step further and provide a better solution, we recommended mLearning as it was accessible, adaptable and available. The target group to this training were medicos who are new to the industry.
According to M-learning strategy, content in M-learning modules will present instructive information using animations that contain line diagrams and a minimal amount of text. Safety measures that are ‘ought to know’ are to be clearly depicted through series of line graphics on the mobile.
Measures are categorized into 4 different levels of safety, along with the associated diseases when not followed.
However, these levels must be followed by everyone who work with hazardous materials in the workplace.
We designed the course in the following way:
Level 1: Talks about basic precautions when interacting with someone who has a certain illness
Level 2: Talks about precautions with a Mild case of a disease
Level 3: Talks about the safety measures for being safe from severe or fatal diseases
Level 4: Talks about the safety measures to be followed for preventing severe illness or death
This is a sample knowledge transfer given to the learners through this training. Likewise, we can deliver training, through bit-sized learning modules on various topics, to the users who are globally scattered, giving them a chance of accessing the information, irrespective of their location and time. Please do share your thoughts!

Introducing new processes and software applications can be quite a daunting task. Employees are not receptive to change and teaching all the details and minute steps can be time consuming. Conducting classroom sessions might not be a very beneficial solution. Learners will need to set aside time from their busy schedules, and often, this might not be feasible. The limited number of facilitators will also slow down the learning process. Facilitators will also need to travel extensively to teach learners spread all across the globe. All these arrangements take up considerable efforts, time and financial resources.
I would like to pick your brains with a quick question on compliance assessment.
In your experience with assessing compliance topics, is it OK to let learners keep repeating a quiz until they achieve 100%?
The mining industry plays a key role in the Australian economy. According to a report published by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Government of Victoria, in 2013, mineral and energy commodities account for 60% of the nation’s total exports.
In this blog, I wish to share my experience on how I developed an interesting course though it had technical content.
This course on finance was a challenge for a non-financial person like me. Initially, it panicked me as I have no idea about finance. But, as an instructional designer, my approach towards this project was more on “educating not teaching”. For this, I did a lot of content comprehension to educate myself before I educate others. We will now see how I faced this challenge and accomplished my goal.
We still remember things that we have learned during our childhood. We remember many incidents that happened long ago. But, there are some instances where we don’t remember things. This,most probably, happens during education. Being a human being, it’s quite natural to forget things.
When you google the words ‘eLearning vendor’, you will come across many websites. Each website contains a lot of information, and sometimes, it may be misleading. Moreover, you might be busy or have no time to go through all the content to check the credibility of the vendor.
The iPad is a device which has radically changed the corporate world. According to the Mac Observer, 94 percent of the Fortune 500 companies are either testing or deploying iPads for various business purposes. It also reported that nearly 70% of global companies are using these devices.
When most of us think about product training, we tend to think about the training programs providedfor sales people to stay aheadof competitors. But, this type of training is given not only to sales people, but also to other audiences who need product training.Firstly, it should be provided to technicians to equip them with knowledgeof every part of a product and its working. This helps them provide better service and ensure customer satisfaction. Another important audience who should be trained on your products is customers. A good training programprovides the basic knowledge of your products, their usage and benefits, which goes a long way in building loyal customers.
Welcome to today’s blog post. Most of the articles, blogs and eLearning companies today portray an impression that the working domain of instructional designers is limited to eLearning. This is not true. The instructional design concept came into existence even before the invention of personal computers. E-learning or the educational technology uses the instructional design principles to enable superior understanding and enhanced learning experiences. Now that most of the training institutions have moved on to digital classrooms globally, I would like share some ideas on instructional designing for technology-enabled classroom training. These ideas will be applicable even in a traditional Instructor-led Training (ILT) program except that the supporting documents will be hard copies and not digital.
An online learning community (OLC) is a web-based learning environment with the latest digital technologies, where interconnected learning participants communicate, construct their knowledge collaboratively and share their personal experiences (Palloff & Pratt, 1999; Preece, 2000; Richardson, 2006).
