Video Arts wins IELA award for m-learning
Video Arts has won the 2013 International E-Learning Award for the best business use of mobile learning, presented by the International E-Learning Association.
The winning project was a bespoke app which Video Arts created for a global telecoms group, to provide product and skills training, via smartphones and tablets, to more than 500 field-based sales people.
The app combines technical product training from the client with 'just in time' skills videos from Video Arts. It was designed to provide the field sales teams at the telecoms group with learning at the point of need as well as access to information on new products and network offerings. All usage activity can be tracked and a feedback function allows users to interact with the HR team.
Established in 2007, the International E-Learning Association is a community of e-learning professionals and researchers who are dedicated to advancing the knowledge and practice of e-learning in the classroom and the workplace. One of its goals is to promote excellence in the use of e-learning and m-learning.
"We are delighted to win this prestigious award for mobile learning. It's a testimony to the expertise and dedication of our bespoke team. This project is a living example of how we can incorporate our best-of-breed learning content to create a tailored solution that's accessible anytime and anywhere," said Martin Addison, CEO of Video Arts.
The International E-Learning Awards are given each year for the best work in e-learning, mobile learning and blended learning, in two divisions: academic and business. All entries are evaluated by the IELA Awards Committee, who look for attributes such as educational soundness and effectiveness, usability and overall significance.
