New Moodle Site Delivered
We have just handed over the latest VLE site to Red Ensign Maritime Training. The site has been created using Moodle. This is the first time have created the user interface using the Snap theme. Snap has improved the design options available in Moodle, facilitating many more development options and improving site usability.
RE intend to use their new Moodle VLE to support the delivery of all their existing maritime training courses.
BALI Contract Awarded
We are pleased to announce that we have just been awarded a contract to work with BALI over the next six months to create is a set of blended training and assessment resources that will support the delivery of two new BALI training courses. One to support the development of site supervisors and the other to support the development of site managers.
We are looking forward to working with Wayne Grills and the BALI project team.
Had a successful day this week helping Alan Stephens of Countryside Training & Tree Management Ltd to complete a chainsaw crosscutting assessment using the SwiftTrack App. He was able to collect evidence using both the video and voice typing function. He recorded and stored the required evidence on his phone while working in a remote location. SwiftTrack then automatically synced to the cloud once Alan was back in the Countryside training centre, near Stafford.
Offshore Hazard Awareness
We have just completed the development of this hazard awareness elearning module for Kingfisher. The module introduces learners to the activities associated with the oil, gas, renewables and cable offshore sectors. It focuses in particular on the various offshore structures that are installed and introduces the hazards that these structures present to commercial fishing activity.
The materials are being hosted on Seafish's virtual learning environment for fishermen. The new materials the latest addition to the Introduction to the commercial fishing course, an induction programme for new entrants to the fishing industry. The course itself is a blended learning solution combining the elearning found on Seafish online with a three week of face-to-face teaching experience.
Competence assessment and recording made easy!
Over the last couple of years, RI has helped create SwiftTrack. SwiftTrack is a dynamic cloud-based system for recording and storing evidence of competence. This web-based tool SwiftTrack enables dynamic evidence collection and recording against established assessment criteria. It gives organisations the ability to easily track and monitor competence and performance standards. The SwiftTrack approach is very intuitive, allowing easy access to evidence for the monitoring, evidencing and verification of performance.
SwiftTrack is a fully customisable system has been developed to work in any industry context and any working environment. It is a totally flexible system which can be adapted to suit a range of different requirements and needs. It is easily adaptable to the exact needs of any organisation. Furthermore, the indicators underpinning competency and compliance can be quickly and easily added to the system using a simple text editor.
Swifttrack facilitates the collection and assessment of evidence, negating the need to use clipboards and pens, and the storage of data on spreadsheets. The system allows evidence to be added as text and or media. Linking to mobile devices allows the addition of text, image, audio and video based resources. It is simplicity itself, allowing data to be recorded and linked directly to the specified assessment criteria.
The system can be used in a range of different contexts:
- By learners working towards achieving given targets and qualifications, who are required to collect and store evidence of their own competence.
- By assessors who are expected to collect and record evidence of competence as demonstrated by others.
- By auditors who need to collect and store evidence to demonstrate compliance for team and individuals.
The SwiftTrack is inherently simple and easy to use linking directly to any internet enables device, SwiftTrack brings all the power, functionality, accuracy and time-saving benefits expected from a cutting-edge, cloud-based app. Contact us to arrange a demonstration.
