The OD team worked with Learning Pool to roll out a new LMS, together with a range of off-the-shelf content libraries that mapped to their original content. The OD team worked with key stakeholders across different areas of the University to ensure the new content met the University’s needs. It was imperative to work quickly to get the LMS and mandatory courses up and running so that the service to internal customers was not impacted and that mandatory training targets were upheld.
In addition to the eight mandatory training modules that were redesigned and relaunched; 35 new custom modules were also rolled out to expand the blended learning approach. These modules were designed to complement existing workshops and allowed staff to engage with a larger variety of learning interventions to support their development and career progression plans. These courses were made up of content from the Learning Pool library and were reviewed by the subject owners and amended to ensure the content was specific to their needs and reflected University branding.
Lastly, the OD team took on the Adapt builder, becoming more self-sufficient in terms of developing their own elearning in-house. The team has been able to expand its offering of bespoke interventions, including online appraisals and they are also set to launch Career Pathways using the programme’s functionality.
