In my practice, I have already worked with distance learning systems. Collaborator is the third in a row and the most successful of them. The system has convenient basic functionality, excellent features. Along with the flexible approach of the system creators in the implementation of individual requests and solution of learning tasks, they desire to help and be involved in the realization of client’s ideas plays an important role.
About the company
Datagroup is an all-Ukrainian telecommunications operator for business and home, the leader of the Ukrainian telecommunications market in data transmission segments, an international transit of traffic and satellite communications. For 17 years in the national telecom market, the company has opened more than 40 regional offices with more than 2000 employees and provides a full range of services in more than 90 locations of Ukraine.
In 2016 the company began searching for an information system to track and support changes among staff, fast training, and development of employees. This tool was to solve the problem of preserving and transferring the company’s knowledge in a comprehensive manner, combining properties of a distance learning system, communications, and a knowledge base.
The choice fell on the LMS Collaborator. The system was launched and functioned as a part of the corporate training system. In 2017 employees of the T&D unit “breathed in” a new life in the distance learning. It has become a comprehensive portal, through which employees can not only learn, but also communicate.
We not only place e-courses in the system, conduct personnel testing and build training programs, but also use all the features of the system to make it popular with our employees. To do this we completely changed the design of the portal, “lodged” a hero there – a training assistant, who was recognized and loved by our employees. A news line was also launched to inform staff about what is happening in the company in the direction of training and development of employees.
This year we’ve launched a training centre – a section in which employees can track information about all upcoming in-person training events and register for them.
Each employee has the opportunity not only to complete a training or development course but also to consolidate the acquired knowledge by passing the tests. In addition, a student can leave a comment on the course. And this is an opportunity for us to receive feedback and, often, expert opinion of employees.
This is not all that we have already managed to accomplish using the basic functions of LMS Collaborator. In the nearest future, we will build career programs for all positions and implement individual development programs for personnel.
For us, LMS Collaborator is a unique environment where each employee, for the shortest possible time, in a very convenient form, can access personally selected training and information. First of all, with the help of LMS Collaborator, we focus on the training of new employees, which allows us to involve our staff practically from the first days of their work, to contact with them on a regular basis, to help and support them in time, and to monitor their training and development.
As the head of e-learning, I am happy that Yuria-Pharm Corporation has found an ideal tool for increasing the effectiveness of corporate training. LMS Collaborator is a fast, flexible, convenient technology that helps to respond to rapidly changing needs and tasks of the corporation.
