Education and Training Foundation (ETF)
“Side by Side is an online resource for learners across the Further Education and training sector providing engaging learning about extremism and radicalization, staying safe online, critical thinking and British values.
The resources may be used fully online or in groups in a blended learning mode. To meet the needs of a broad range of learners, ETF, with LEO Learning, designed a product that is highly visual, uses video and drama to engage, stop motion animation to reinforce learning and interactive exercises and assessments to check learning.”
“Selling boxes of chocolate often worth more than $100 each is an art as well as a science. Godiva and LEO Learning injected passion into aspiring Millennial retail staff in Godiva’s chocolate ‘Boutiques’ (retail outlets) using an ingenious mobile-first solution which combined five modules of eLearning with a parallel multi-level game called Chocolate Quest: Guardians of the Cocoa Bean.
Employees embraced this approach to learning wholeheartedly, giving it an average rating of 8.9/10.0. Most importantly, a follow-up evaluation proved they were applying the learning in store, which contributed to Boutiques represented on the program growing significantly faster year-on-year than Boutiques that weren’t.”
“Although Fire Safety training has always been part of the Royal Mail safety strategy, the content it used really didn’t inspire. With mountains of dry paper and machinery throughout its locations, the threat of fire is real and ever-present.
In a bid to re-engage the population in the real dangers present, and elicit a wholesale culture change, Royal Mail radically overhauled the training program with a gritty new approach, making great use of the latest in interactive video content. A time-delayed, externally-conducted impact evaluation proved not only that learners enjoyed this new approach, but crucially they did indeed change their behavior and reduce risk.”
