Title: Hyatt Hotel Mobile Learning


Description (provided by submitter):   The Challenge:  Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC. was looking for a solution for both new and existing salespeople to learn about their broad selection of tire offerings. Their existing salespeople were recommending a limited amount of tire solutions to customers, always falling back on the products they felt comfortable discussing. Bridgestone wanted to educate all of their salespeople to be knowledgeable advisors who can present a wide array of solutions applicable to a client’s situation.     With an influx of new salespeople who use mobile technology and smart phones, Bridgestone was interested in a mobile solution that could be accessed anywhere.     The Solution:  Designing Digitally, Inc. created an online tool optimized for smartphones called Product Application Learning on the Go. Salespeople can access interactive flashcards of Bridgestone products, test their understanding with quiz questions, and practice matching solutions to applications in selling scenarios.    Bridgestone wanted the tool to be easily accessible for internal salespeople as well as external resellers. Therefore, we created a custom website for learners to access directly in a web browser without needing an account or login information.     Since the website is designed for mobile devices, salespeople can reference the tool on their phones moments before meeting with a customer. Or, they may even choose to use the virtual flashcards to present solutions during a sales conversation.      Older generations of Bridgestone’s salesforce may be less inclined to use Product Application Learning on the Go when they’re actually “on the go.” However, they can access all features of the tool on their computers in the office or at home.     The Results:  Product Learning on the Go is exactly what Bridgestone needed for their salesforce. They are  currently in the process of introducing the learning tool through various channels in their operations. To gather more feedback on how to further improve on the tool, Bridgestone is putting together focus groups at the beginning of 2016. They will be working with Designing Digitally, Inc. to keep the information relevant by making updates and introducing new product offerings.     Bridgestone is working to promote Product Learning on the Go through all available outlets by offering rewards such as prizes and course credits for learners who utilize the new tool.

Description (provided by submitter):   The Digital Voyage modules are meant to be supplemental for a classroom or home experience for kids in grades 4 and 5. They are just-in-time, interactive modules that allow a student, teacher and parents to learn granular chunks of information about Internet safety and digital citizenship. Our hope is that students will take this information home and share what they have learned with their parents. The modules are accessible on a desktop, or mobile device and will allow the user to pick up where they had left off from a prior visit. Each module is meant to be a part of an overall course based on Internet safety, and each module is tracked via an LMS. An interactive map shows each user their progress down their digital voyage and let's them know where to go to next.

Title: IT Security Awareness

Description (provided by submitter):   Gables Residential Training & Development has partnered with ACTO to bring our training programs into the 21st Century! If you’ve watched our other submission, for “MicroLearning”, you’ve seen the different ActionPacks that are available with our blended On-Boarding Program. The best part? All of our learning is fully mobile compatible! So these programs can happen anywhere, anytime, and in any way the associate learns best. On a mobile device, the ActionPacks, tasks, videos, interactivity, assessments and learning activities are exactly the same as they appear on a larger screen, such as a laptop or desktop computer. This means training is fun, simple to access, highly engaging, and wonderfully easy to use. The systems are synced as well, so that all of the progress tracking in one will align with that on the other: associates can do a training activity from their mobile device on the train to work, complete a task and then pick back up with the next task from their desktop computer at the office. When combined with our Instructor-Led Classes, our program is truly on-demand, blended learning! We believe we are the first in our industry to move to this 100% blended approach to training.

The Scrimmage platform is intuitive, highly searchable and clearly designed so content is quickly accessible for any level of expertise.

Personalization features also create a visually appealing and familiar design. Likewise, to enhance the personalization component, the Scrimmage platform makes it easy to ensure enrollments are simplified for administrators on the backend, which also negates any additional IT needs.  A third vital component to Scrimmage’s modern mobile platform is the social piece. It allows for both dynamic and static content to be interactive and for learners, managers, or peers to comment, react and collaborate.  Another social element can be found through Scrimmage’s gamification piece, as its leaderboards and badges, for instance, drive excitement, engagement and competition.  A Scrimmage mobile platform also supports all forms content from PDFs and SCORM courses to assessments, surveys and even live audience response polls.  And, our platform easily integrates with other existing knowledge repositories, including LMSs or CMSs. Finally, reporting and analytics for today’s business world are critical. Meanwhile, they are truly the foundation for any L&D or Training department.  The Scrimmage mobile learning platform allows for smart decisions in a clear format/dashboard, as it tracks relevant data, by learner and by content, so adjustments can be made instantly.
