Learning Pool partnered with EcoVadis and its digital learning platform, EcoVadis Academy, to create a suite of compelling elearning courses covering the four EcoVadis theme areas of: Environment, Labour and Social Practices, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement.
Twenty-seven courses have been developed in 9 languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, and Turkish) and are delivered through its existing LMS. At approximately 45 minutes per course, this represents around 20 hours of learning per language.
The subject content is provided by the EcoVadis team of experienced subject matter experts and is aimed at non-sustainability professionals within companies performing below the EcoVadis average scores. The training is delivered in a simple and highly engaging style with clear step-by-step instructions on how to improve their sustainability initiatives with case study examples to help the learner understand how to tackle the specific improvement topics.
The courses are designed in Articulate Rise and include interactive activities designed in Articulate Storyline. Courses comprise around ten five-minute bite-sized chapters, which are linked together via the LMS. They are mobile-friendly and have relevant accessibility features for those with disabilities.
Each course features an introductory chapter with an animated video, topic content, resources, video case studies and interviews, downloadable checklists, and an end-of-course assessment. Following completion of every chapter and an assessment score of 80% or more, the learner receives a personalized completion award.
Customers pay a subscription model for their EcoVadis program, which includes full access to eight of the courses at a basic level. At the premium level, they get access to the full suite of 27 performance improvement courses.
