NCALT – award winning e-learning

by | Feb 16, 2009 | Case Studies, Evidence for Change

In the 2008 e-learning Awards the National Centre of Applied Learning Technologies (NCALT) achieved unprecedented success  as winner of the ‘e-learning industry award for outstanding achievement – corporate’, Gold Winner for ‘Excellence in the Production of Learning Content’ and earning  ‘Special Mention’ in the ‘Best e-learning project securing widespread adoption’.

We are all on a journey to improve the results of our learning interventions – so what can we learn from NCALT’s experiences?

This case study looks at the implementation of 2 critical programmes for the Police and looks at how they used learning technologies to engage busy staff around sensitive issues.

It also includes 10 top tips for engaging organisations with business critical programmes:

1. Align directly to business priorities and needs by surveying key users and allocate your resources accordingly;
2. Respect sensitivity of subject matter and audience expectations;
3. Devolve ownership and identify ‘local’ champions;
4. Forge collaborative efforts with key stakeholders to ensure high adoption rates, engagement and positive use;
5. Overcome resistance of user groups, review forums and regular updates as part of a strong customer relationship management approach;
6. Survey users on IT infrastructure, accessibility and usability;
7. Establish levels of support to address technical, product and implementation queries;
8. Imbed e-learning into classroom delivery as well as functioning standalone;
9. Network through local and national events to broaden knowledge and constantly improve;
10. Strive for excellence and don’t stand still.

Update Oct 09 – We have included NCALT in our Evidence for Change programme as they have seen:

  • a projected saving of £10.5 million per year
  • 100 tonnes per year carbon reduction by reducing travel and classroom based delivery.
  • a very real increase in operational efficiency as a direct consequence of using learning technologies

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.
