Straightaway Health Careers: Training and e-Learning Solution for the Health Care Industry
A multi-national company, based in Germany, launched Straightaway, a new e-Learning and Training company in North Carolina, to train entry-level health care providers (primarily Certified Nurse Assistants) with the goal of reducing staff turnover. Straightaway selected Skapa to be its technical partner to customize an existing e-Learning solution for their specific needs. Skapa was chosen because we have the business expertise and technical "chops" to bring the product to market.
The training application or Learning Management System (LMS) is entirely web-based and is comprised of videos (over 600), quizzes and simulations. Learners are able to watch the videos using their desktop, tablet or mobile devices.
The LMS tracks and stores a learner's progress so that instructors and administrators can track how their learners are progressing.
Skapa was able to use an existing LMS as the base for the Straightaway LMS and customized it to provide a learning environment with significant user-experience (UX) enhancements as well as integrating it with a custom-simulation system.
The Learner dashboard, featured on the left side, is intuitive and provides the learner with a snapshot to see their progress through the curriculum and their most recently watched content.The administrator dashboard provides instructors and administrators the ability to track learner progress across the organization and at the facility/building level. It provides detailed information about test results as well as learning trends.
