Oslo, Norway 14 March 2011 - Edvantage group, a European provider of cloud-based learning and performance solutions, has signed a three-year contract with SATS health and fitness centres to provide a complete e-learning solution involving over 4,000 staff. The agreement will enable SATS to provide employees with online learning and access to knowledge and skills from any location at anytime.
The e-learning solution will include software to create e-learning courses, a custom made e-learning course, "Welcome to SATS", online training to increase staff proficiency in Microsoft Office, and an e-learning platform to distribute courses and facilitate knowledge exchange. Employees will log into Edvantage group's Learning Gateway to access courses and share information. SATS will also develop its own interactive e-learning courses using CourseBuilder, Edvantage group's content authoring tool.
As part of the agreement, Edvantage group will create a "Welcome to SATS" course. The course will use digital media and creative interactions to engage staff.
Lena Nordin, Director of HR at SATS, says, "Providing good learning and development opportunities is essential for SATS. Our people are passionate and energetic. They inspire others and we want to inspire them. E-learning will strengthen our unique corporate culture and increase the level of service we provide to members."
"We selected Edvantage group because they are known in the learning industry for delivering a total solution that includes good content and technologies, and the know-how to make the learning count. It is an advantage for us to have one provider that we can depend on to launch the first programmes and support us as we grow," concludes Nordin.
