Commissioned content: Conversion of existing paper-based learning materials for Business Administration and Logistics into interactive resources, using Articulate Storyline.
Project contacts: Wilma Chapman (First4Skills) and Dale Davies (Liverpool)
Project summary: Our aim is to transform existing resources for Business Administration and Logistics, for the wider audience, but also aligning to the strategic objectives of both learning providers and supporting the local economy. We’ve based our proposal on the priorities for the development of the city region, by the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, which focuses on business growth around the knowledge / innovation economy and the Superport. Our objectives are also to utilise and build upon expertise and skills across both businesses. The project team including, eProduct Developer, Associate colleague and 2 groups of Advanced and Higher Level IT and Digital Students will convert the materials. Adding value to once passive resources creating stimulating and dynamic ones, made available throughout a multitude of technologies, available when and wherever a learner chooses to access, with the aid of Articulate Storyline software. Working alongside the students from the College will also give them the capacity to develop new skills, in project management and creating digital learning materials, which they can then add to their own skills profile, and hopefully take into the workplace with them.
