Edinburgh-based eLearning Alliance member Multiply has created a suite of 16 regulatory style eLearning modules for a major UK insurance company. Faced with the challenge of how to motivate learners working through hours of dry ‘compulsory’ training, the Multiply team delivered a vibrant design that employs an innovative scrolling interface.
The world of financial services is well used to the demands of regulatory learning. Staff are expected to work through regular doses of detailed subject matter – usually repeated at least every year – with a formal assessment at the end. In many organisations, these modules have developed a bad reputation from users due to their repetitive nature and dull format.
To counter these negative perceptions, and to make sure learners were put in control of their learning, Multiply proposed an inventive new design to a major UK insurer when asked to pitch for a 16-module development project.
The solution employed an easy-to-use scrollable interface and a vibrant infographic-style design that presented key information in a highly visual and engaging manner.
Each module also included a randomised assessment complete with Management Information to satisfy detailed business requirements.
In all, more than 10 hours of learning was developed and the modules were received enthusiastically by client and learners alike.
