In 2007 Irish supermarket chain Superquinn took on the challenge of implementing training via e-learning throughout its stores. As winners of best e-learning project securing widespread adoption, we look at how e-learning became such a success for the business.

The team at Superquinn faced a number of challenges:

  • A large customer facing audience working part time or out of normal hours
  • Low computer literacy and in some cases  low grasp of english language
  • No obvious location for learning

This study explores the processes used to design,pilot and communicate and deliver a successful e-learning  programme in a challenging environment.

Information Transfer have also produced 'How to make your e-learning garden Grow' a white paper to share lessons learned from helping e-learning to work more effectively in both Superquinn and last year's widespread award winner The Priory Group.
