Creative ways to increase the use of e-learning!

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

Induction Training in Cambridgeshire, Pre-learning in Northamptonshire and E-Learning Launches in Gloucestershire. Multi-agency training with a consistent message in the Social and Healthcare sectors.  Reaching the parts other training cannot reach!

These are just a few examples of how kwango customers are using e-learning to reach out to the large number of practitioners who need training in our Adult Services, Children’s Services and Healthcare subject areas.

If you are an existing kwango customer you can contact us for our latest Advice Notes on how you can increase the take-up of e-learning in your organisation.

Minimise your carbon footprint through e-learning!

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

One public sector organisation that we are aware of have set themselves the ambitious target of reducing their carbon footprint by 50% in 3 years.

It is already widely acknowledged that e-learning can deliver more training to more people for less money.  How much does it cost to take your people from their day jobs and put them in a training room for a period of time? You lose productivity and may have to pay for temporary replacement staff, the trainer, training materials, travelling expenses, accommodation, catering, equipment and room hire.

Whilst we at kwango recognise that e-learning can never replace face to face training, minimising travelling, energy and material production costs through the judicious use of e-learning will also help to reduce your carbon footprint.
