Using e-learn in Induction


Is anyone willing to share their approach to using e-learn in Induction programmes and the types of topics that you use it for?

Many thanks

  1. E-learning
    Hi Sandra

    I don’t know whether you’d consider it e-learning or not, I’ve used it in the past for health and safety assessment (DSeasy) and I also put some company presentations on to the intranet that could be scrolled through at leisure, or re-visited, with a test at the end, and we used them for regulatory testing. If you have the facility, its worth dedicating a few pages to the induction and placing the process on the intranet so that people can re-visit

    Hope this helps


  2. sort of e-learning
    Like Rich I used an alternative approach to the blended issue….I couldn’t afford bespoke e-learning; either the initial cost or the time/cost of any updates.

    So I created a Powerpoint document that new folk accessed on a shared drive that had all the basic stuff like company history and structure, office locations and layout.
    This had links to the relevant bits of the intranet for stuff like policies and procedures, people and roles.

    I also gave desk stands that explained how to use the phone system (transfer calls, pick up calls, set up groups and conference calls etc) and little laminated cards that showed how to access the building out of hours and how to pick up and change answerphone messages remotely.

    It was quick to set up, cheap to initiate and manage and it seemed to work pretty well. It was also accessible on demand and an ongoing basis.

    I hope this helps
