Based in Australia, Passmore Duff, a training company specialising in the field of workplace violence and critical incident risk management, has collaborated with Upside Learning for commencing a new chapter in blending learning. This marks a new beginning for Passmore Duff as it moves from its current internally hosted LMS platform, developed in 2004, to Upside Learning’s multi award–winning Learning Management System, UpsideLMS. to deliver training to its clients. As a part of the relationship, Upside Learning will also help Passmore Duff to convert its existing ILT sessions into eLearning courses.

As a global leader in workplace learning technology solutions, we offer a wide range of solutions for companies of all types and sizes. By using our end-to-end training solutions we are confident that Passmore Duff will be able to scale a notch higher in delivering training to its clients.

With an aim to make information and knowledge resources accessible to its clients anywhere and at anytime, Passmore Duff wanted to convert some of its ILT sessions into eLearning courses. These resources were to support the delivery of its nationally accredited competency based training programs. With 3000+ hours of custom learning developed and more than 500 projects completed, Upside Learning used its expertise and experience to develop Flash–based eLearning courseware for Passmore Duff.

UpsideLMS is now used for the delivery of these Flash–based and its other tailor–made eLearning courses, and also as a reinforcement tool for its ILT sessions, thus delivering a unique blended learning experience to its learners. The ILT sessions too are managed via UpsideLMS’ Classroom Training Module, which is complete with training scheduling, nomination workflows, venue and vendor management, and training costs management. Moreover, UpsideLMS’ 3 tier or multi–portal architecture (having a Client Manager, a Learner profile and a Site manager) enables Passmore Duff to create and host different portals for each of its clients. For its clients, it allows them to brand their individual portals according to their corporate identity as well as make use of it for delivering training to their workforce.
