Brandon Hall Awards, 2016: Silver and Bronze Excellence in Learning Medals

Upside Learning, together with two of our clients, won two medals in the 2016 Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Learning Awards.

We partnered with the Imperial College of London to create two eModules – Neurotransmitters and Neurodegenerative Diseases – that won a Silver in the Best Results of a Learning Program category. The eModules preceded classroom sessions and ensured that students went into these sessions with a strong understanding of the basics, thereby allowing teachers to focus on deeper, higher-level learning in the classroom.

We worked with the World Bank Group to create a practice-focused, fully responsive eLearning module to help analytical report writers as well as other non-technical staff to write more effectively by putting the Main Message Up Front. This module won a Bronze in the Best Advance in Custom Content category. By requiring learners to build up documents by selecting texts and then justifying their choices, we addressed nuances in writing and ensured that learners really thought about how principles were applied or whether certain characteristics were met.

"What's New" Blog Series Launched

We recently launched a "What's New" blog series, where we share information about tools and technologies, media, devices, strategies and methodologies, processes, industry insights or indeed anything of interest that we feel could be applied in the L&D domain.

We plan to publish a "What's New" compilation every quarter, and hope that it helps open up innovative thinking and ideas for learning solution components and programmes as well as for associated design and development activities.

"eLearning Maintenance Updates" Newsletter Initiated

For our existing clients, we have introduced an "eLearning Maintenance Updates" newsletter. This newsletter is aimed at indicating how existing eLearning courses could be affected by tool, technology or other relevant changes or events, and providing guidance on how potential issues could be resolved.

Our maintenance updates newsletters may highlight issues that could be encountered when launching or viewing courses, together with possible solutions; information on tool/technology, browser or operating system upgrades, support, new features, etc; and how we can help fix or implement those.

Missed the launch issue? Let us know if you'd like to receive a copy of our first "eLearning Maintenance Updates" newsletter.

eLearning: Offline & Tracking – What Are Your Options?

This is the second of two posts about viewing and tracking eLearning in offline mode. The post looks at three possible ways to achieve this, and then evaluates whether some of the Responsive Authoring Tools available in the market can help provide a solution for any of these options. It also describes the solution that we have come up with for offline and tracking.
