Hosting 165 eLearning courses, Network Rail's new eLearning platform is now live – introducing new features and functionality to improve the learning experience for Network Rail colleagues and the wider industry.
One stop shop:
As part of a wider project to improve Network Rail's online offering, the new site is set to be the central hub for all kinds of learning content including training materials, videos, briefing tools and quizzes. It boasts a new dashboard, providing learners with an 'at-a-glance' view of the latest training news, courses on which they are enrolled and a course progress bar displaying percentage completion. Coming soon, line managers will also benefit from a manager's dashboard, giving them visibility of the eLearning progress for their direct reports.
A major focus for Network Rail has been the development of interactive and immersive materials, designed to increase learner engagement and enhance memory recall, helping learners to perform their roles safely and empower them to challenge unsafe behaviours in the workplace. These materials will continue to be developed and housed on the new site.
To provide learners with easier access to their eLearning, Network Rail Training has adapted a number of courses to be fully responsive on tablets and mobile devices – a stable internet or wi-fi connection is all that's required. Launch of the new eLearning site will now enable the team to continue their work adapting more courses in this way.
Network Rail's learning materials are available to organisations across the industry, like the 125,000 Sentinel card holders undertaking safety critical training courses to access Network Rail infrastructure.
