You know you’re meeting the learning objectives
With FLOWSPARKS we learned what works and what doesn’t, what is meaningful and didactically relevant to achieve a certain learning objective.
BASF Antwerp did not have its own authoring tool before the arrival of FLOWSPARKS. Their e-Learning modules were developed by two external companies. ‘The content came from us, but they took care of the rest’, says Alain Molinard, Head of L&D at BASF Antwerp.
‘In 2016, two trends convinced us to invest in our own tool. The first was a technological development’, explains Molinard. ‘There was a greater range of decent authoring tools that you could use yourself, while more and more people started using a smartphone or tablet. We also found that it was very difficult to remove employees who work full-time in a shift system from their shift to put them in a classroom during the day.’
Molinard and his team wondered whether they should continue to offer all training in the classroom and in the daytime. ‘With e-Learning, our people were able to take part in training anywhere and at any time. In this way, we hoped to motivate them to attend training courses of their own accord.’
