Better online courses through collaboration
– We train our resellers and customers internationally. We needed an e-learning platform that we could use to carry out e-training. The ability to offer online courses is an absolute must for us, and we can’t lag behind our competitors, explains training manager Riikka Oivanen.
PerkinElmer chose Xoompoint’s FlowLMS e-learning platform as the e-learning environment. Xoompoint also produced a large amount of content for PerkinElmer.
Oivanen says that PerkinElmer has become a better content producer in collaboration with Xoompoint.
– With Xoompoint, we’ve learnt to package our e-learning material better. This means the use of images, videos, animations and tasks along with text, says Oivanen.
– These new aspects will help learners to really internalize the material and make e-learning more effective, she adds.
Companies can’t fall behind on development
The need for e-learning is constantly increasing. This was also the case for PerkinElmer.
– One tip for anyone considering organizing e-learning is that even if the thought of getting started seems difficult, in practice it’s a lot easier than you might expect. You can’t fall behind on development, Oivanen adds.
