Learning Pool helps A.G Barr to bring some pop to their LMS user engagement

A.G. Barr’s internal marketing and gamification leads to unprecedented LMS user engagement.

The Challenge

After a successful roll-out of their Totara platform in 2012, feedback from employees was extremely positive. This was reflected in the growing usage figures as well as increased demand for content and bespoke learning projects across the business.

In February 2016, new projects were planned for the year ahead which would rely on key Totara features as well as a well-structured expanding catalogue of content.

It was identified that the structure and tracking of content needed to be revisited and examined to ensure that the system was future-proof for the delivery of planned projects and beyond, while meeting new tracking and reporting requirements.

The Solution

With future projects in mind and in order to maintain momentum, A.G. Barr worked with Platinum Partner, MediaCorp Online (now part of the Learning Pool family) , to examine the ways the courses and learning content were organised and presented in Totara with the aim of ensuring that content would continue to be easy to access, find, and use from a learner’s perspective, no matter their technological experience or the amount of time they have been with the business.

This led to a content re-mapping and re-structuring exercise and new, fresh dashboard designs were commissioned which would reflect the ethos of the content re-structuring.

The new design and structure would be re-launched with an internal promotional campaign by mid-March 2016.

The response

Lindsay Barrie
Learning & Development Manager

The success of the refresh and re-design exercise is confirmation that we were right to choose Totara as our platform. Working with MediaCorp Online (now part of the Learning Pool family) , we are continually thinking about the future, pushing our expectations, and are consistently surprised at what the system is capable of and what it can do for us. The flexibility the platform offers when it comes to delivering bespoke learning projects based on our competencies, management and leadership frameworks, and our performance management toolkit is unrivalled. The use of open badges and the introduction of our new single click analytics dashboard has added a new level of transparency. It has given our learners a fresh injection of enthusiasm for the platform, motivating them to use it to an extent that has exceeded our expectations. On the whole, our Totara platform has streamlined delivery of on-demand learning across the business and facilitated far more efficient reporting and administration.
