When e-learning becomes a matter of life and death!

by | Mar 6, 2013 | Case Studies, Evidence for Change

Did you know that those not wearing seatbelts contribute to 30% of road deaths and the risk of death in a collision increases 4 fold?  Yet, despite being a legal requirement for 29 years, an estimated 5% of drivers still won’t buckle up, that’s almost 2 million UK drivers.

In this case study read about how StarTraq’s mission to improve road safety through education and enforcement, and how Dorset Police was the first police force to implement StarTraq Live (Learning in a Virtual Environment) In November 2010.

This casestudy has been included in evidence for change programme because it has potentially contributed to the saving of 67 lives in Dorset – something that not many e-learning programmes can claim!

StarTraq’s Nine Tips for using online learning to change behaviour:

  • Understand your learners – their needs and what motivates them
  • Involve users early in the process – listen to what they say and watch what they do
  • Work with credible subject matter experts
  • Communicate continually with expert partners throughout the delivery phase
  • Make the impact of behaviour change relevant through the use of real life stories
  • Use diagnostics to  tailor relevant learning resources to individuals
  • Do what you can to open up access 24x7
  • Don’t be afraid to change track when you need to
  • Don’t just track data around the programme – use it to improve product development and take up

Note from Editor

We are pleased to include StarTraq’s story in our Evidence for Change programme, because it has potentially contributed to the saving of 67 lives in Dorset – something that not many e-learning programmes can claim!

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.
