Many countries in the world have launched safety campaigns that are intended to reduce road traffic accidents by increasing awareness of public. Traditional methods of education have been employed in the majority of safety campaigns. Corporations realize that they have to play a vital role in educating their staff and their broader eco-system about road safety. Corporations want to be seen as ‘good employers’ and hence invest in training their stakeholders. In the UAE, where road traffic fatalities are the #2 cause of death (source: MOI), the role of corporations in road safety education is a truly critical one.
Typically, road safety related e-learning courses are embedded into broader HSE (Health Safety Environment) e-learning suits. In recent years e-learning platforms have created new dimensions in teaching and learning. E-learning platforms provide users with varieties of facilities such as electronic presentation, course/unit information, learning resources, video of lecture, library resources, internet resources, interactive whiteboard, virtual learning environment, learning activities, communications (email, discussion board, etc.) and many other features.
Recent reports on the gap between corporate learning and what learners actually want highlights that, when given a choice, learners want mobile, relevant, personalized and self-paced content at a point of need. What they get, is often a little different – with too much emphasis on face-to-face and long courses.
The digital revolution and smartphone boom has triggered huge changes in how we access, consume, discuss, and share content. Naturally, learning is following suit. Whilst many want learning at a point of need, many learn in evenings and at weekends and on the way to or from work.
A key advantage to getting your learning online and multi-device is that it ensures you are in sync with modern learners – delivering the type of content they want, when they want it. Get learners on-side, and you’re more likely to get the results you need. Plus, digital, self-paced learning can be accessed at point of need, not somewhere else – like a classroom far away – so employees can apply what they’ve learnt straight away.Share your story
