The online induction sets out operational and financial procedures and isdelivered via an intranet. “These modules are a novel way to disseminatecombined learning and performance support tools, through your computer,”explains Trainer1 managing director, Neil Lasher. “As such, this may markthe start of a new manifestation of combining e-learning, performance supportand knowledge management.” Lasher goes on to explain that the modules are designed to be entirelyintuitive. “People can go through it and learn or else dip in and out asand when they need to.” The first module has been tested by the Government Offices using fivecriteria: IT user-friendliness, detail and accuracy, plain English andsimplicity, layout and design and fit for audience.
