Alberta, CANADA – Global eTraining®, a leading provider of interactive online training solutions, along with contributing partner, Opus Stewart Weir Ltd., has won the prestigious Brandon Hall Group Award for 2015, earning a bronze in the category of “Best Advance in Custom Content”.
This is the second consecutive award for The Generator, having also earned gold in the “Best Advance in Content Authoring Technology” category for 2014.
“What makes this award especially significant for us is the fact that we have been recognized for The Generator since its introduction to market,” said Holly Brattberg, Co-Founder and CFO at Global eTraining. “We are committed to delivering excellence with all our interactive training solutions, and this award further validates our mission to ensure our customers receive a personalized training experience that is tailored to their needs.”
Introduced to the online learning market in early 2014, The Generator offers a custom, yet intuitive course design environment far surpassing its competitors. Applying curriculum development, instructional design, teaching methodology and educational psychology best practices, The Generator uses proven templates to ensure each individual component is engineered to accelerate learning through increased engagement time, enhanced retention rates and real-world application of each learner’s technical skills.
“Being a worldwide engineering, land surveying and asset management firm with offices in many countries, we have been challenged with providing a source of consistent training to both our field and office staff,” said Dr. David Prentice, Chief Executive & Managing Director, Opus Stewart Weir. “Our ability to schedule said training has been a historically equal challenge when you take into account seasonal variances and time zone realities. By combining Global eTraining’s hosting environment with their Generator’s ability to craft custom instructions specific to our needs and then making them available to the end-user to utilize at their discretion is a near perfect scenario.”
The Generator accelerates learning by leveraging a cloud-based application integrated within a collaborative knowledge-capture interface. It provides for the production of video, audio and images, as well as practical exercises and interactive quizzes to adjust to any learning style, all in a drag-and-drop interface allowing course designers to create custom content in record-breaking time.
