The SRI wanted a Learning Management System that would evolve the industry’s face-to-face, paper-based training into the digital era, improving learning accessibility, engaging workers on-the-go, and allowing employers to track learning milestones, skills, and competencies.
As the system would provide learning across nine different employers, the LMS also needed to be flexible enough to reflect different company brand identities, while siloing data within protected sub-environments.
Moving their training online to aNewSpring has helped SRI achieve ‘flexibility to manage delivery to students using customised branding options’. Being ‘well-suited to delivering a completely mobile student experience’ was very attractive to the team at SRI. Crucially, the LMS was also a ‘cost-effective solution for delivering multiple training courses’.
SRI has rolled out a new generation of training for the sugar industry using aNewSpring, creating and mapping 3500 course content pages at industry and company levels to national competencies. In addition, LMS features like adaptive learning, custom branding, certificate-issuing, and payment integration have resulted in a superior student experience.
Sweetening the deal
Learning content can be easily imported and embedded using iframe technology. This ease of use means employers are using the LMS for generic courses like policies, induction and onboarding.
Employers can issue certificates showing levels of competency through SRI’s industry recognised training programs. SRI says this is ‘perfect’ for issuing industry-based training certificates.
Data and auditing
Course details can be exported for auditing purposes easily. Because the LMS retains all the necessary information in the cloud, SRI finds it ‘extremely helpful and easy to retrieve’.
SRI ‘loves’ the payment integration feature, which it uses with new contractor induction training. ‘Easy enrolments, hassle-free payments and course registration all happen effortlessly on aNewSpring.’
