Nottingham Trent University (NTU) wanted to change the way its systems training was delivered to university admin staff. NTU hoped to reduce time spent on face-to-face
delivery of courses and spend more time on supporting individual learner requirements.
Luke Phillimore, NTU’s e-learning coordinator, wanted to create e-learning courses to support training on “Banner,” Nottingham Trent University’s Management Information System. Banner is used by many U.K. & U.S. universities for the administration of student information.
“Our typical user is an administration staff member who would be out in different schools throughout the university,” says Phillimore. “Each one of them would require access to our student data database, and that is what the training has been developed to teach. Each time they want access to a different part of the database, they would need a different training session. So we introduced e-learning using Atlantic Link Content Point to reduce the amount of face-to-face classroom based training for the staff.”
Phillimore decided on Kaplan’s Atlantic Link Content Point after evaluating several other competitor products and made the decision based upon recommendations from a colleague at Nottingham City Council. Phillimore uses Content Point to build feature and media-rich courses with the latest Flash technologies without the need to have any Flash programming skills.
The newly developed courses are branded using Nottingham Trent University brand guidelines. Phillimore was able to import and adapt existing university marketing materials and Pantone colors with Atlantic Link authoring tools.
In addition, NTU is now able to track and monitor learning much more easily than when using spreadsheets and time-tabling. With the Atlantic Link solutions,
staffers can include completion certificates, complete with title, date and attendee for any Personal Development Plans that are in place.
The Nottingham Trent University Banner courses are testimony to the power of Atlantic Link Content Point as a valuable part of NTU e-learning strategy, providing learners self-paced training that can be done at any time, in any location.
