Further Learning: The CEDR Virtual Campus
Developed from the ground up and focusing on learning impact our Virtual Campus provides end to end learning as well as a lifelong learning resource which can be accessed on-demand to create instant remediation-focused skills and up-to-date knowledge.
Beginning with agility and experiential design the Virtual Campus can be completely personalised to individual client needs, both in terms of content and practical application such as language, visualisation techniques, types of media used and applicable to various levels of digital comfort level.
Security and data protection is also a key consideration with our entire system held within a secure, closed platform.
Continuity then becomes our focus as we ensure all digital content adds real value to the life of face-to-face elements.
- Pre-course modules introduce participants to each other; our expert trainers; the learning journey and offers the opportunity to engage in a ‘light touch’ way. Alternatively, for those who would like to dive deeper, we offer additional content which supports the core programme.
- On-course modules often include social and experiential intervention with microlearning, polls, checkpoints and pulse gauging tools giving further value.
- Post-course practice, assessment or coaching is also a core part of CEDR Virtual Campus as participants begin to embed their learning into real-life work and personal environments. On-demand access to knowledge and skills reminders, resource hubs and coaching also allow us to dramatically increase the success and longevity of impact on our programmes.
- On-demand access is the final element within the Virtual Campus. Using a range of analytical measurement tools, we can create a participant profile which identifies growth and next steps then creates a ‘resource hub’ which can be accessed remotely on any device on demand, when the participant needs it.
Within the Virtual Campus, we have ‘designed in’ a range of media types including video, animation, icons/imagery and interactive features, pulse measures, gamification and simulation. This mix of media types helps to keep participants in the learning zone for longer, builds intuitive connectivity between the participant and the subject matter and ultimately improves success and impact.
The user experience is also constantly at the forefront of our development process. Adjusting for cultural differences, those with English as a second language and those with limited experience on a digital learning platform.
We also understand that everyone learns in different ways so there is not a one size fits all approach, we offer printable content and the use of colour theory to increase readability and engagement.
The Virtual Campus will be launched soon as keep an eye on the Training & consultancy drop-down menu on the CEDR homepage.
