Learning portal success stories outlined at Learning Technologies

12/02/09

Acteon presented the latest in learning portal developments and hints and tips for successful portal implementation at the Learning Technologies exhibition in London Olympia (28th and 29th January).

Matthew Borg, co-managing partner of the award-winning firm, used case studies from their major pharmaceutical clients to illustrate what works and what doesn’t when creating an e-learning portal, whether for a sales team or an induction group. "The successful learning portals we work on have several things in common," Matthew said. "Most importantly, they are: specific to a subject, group of people and a time; updateable; and embedded into the working practices of the team."

"A learning portal is one of the best ways an organisation can improve access to training materials and support performance on the job"

A learning portal is one of the best ways an organisation can improve access to training materials and support performance on the job," Matthew said. "Done right, an e-learning product portal can improve product knowledge, drive positive customer feedback and potentially improve sales. We certainly have evidence to show this."

Matthew said Acteon uses a range of tools to develop e-learning for its clients, including Seminar Author, a rapid e-learning authoring tool that allows content to be quickly created and updated. The Seminar Knowledge Centre is an e-learning management system designed with the learning portal structure at its core and is used by the firm in many of its implementations.

Established in 1981, Acteon specializes in content creation, e-learning software and internal change communication advice for e-learning implementations. The firm is well known for its ability to work with very complex, technical training materials and for its expertise in driving uptake of e-learning through stakeholder engagement.

Acteon has won a number of training awards in recent years, including a National Training Award, the Institute of IT Training “E-learning Project of the Year”, and several E-learning Awards and shortlistings. For more information on Acteon contact Cathy Curwood on (01223) 312227.
