Rapid e-Learning Master
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The aim of the project is to develop methodology and guide for the effective realization of rapid learning courses in SMEs and big companies. It addresses a problem of the efficient use of e-learning methods in companies. Rapid e-learning is based on a short training modules conducted using dedicated tools, such as Adobe Captivate, Articulate Storyline or Lectora. It responds to a growing demand to provide more relevant and attractive learning opportunities for companies. The compact structure of rapid learning modules makes the process of learning easier: knowledge is provided in small doses and the content is concrete. From the user's perspective, one deals with more flexible model of learning (in contrast to classic e-learning, there are no dozens or hundreds screens of presentation). It’s also easier for user to find time to develop necessary competencies. Thanks to rapid learning implentation, employee's efficiency could substantially increase. The challenge, however, is a proper preparation and implementation of such solutions in the company. Another challenge is to manage the whole process of rapid learning. Rapid learning is efficient , but it has to be administered by really conscious person. We have to also remember that companies operate in some constant environment therefore existing tools have to be next to new one in the form of blended learning. The project seeks to support European businesses and organizations in adoption of Rapid e-learning system. It’s main target are small and medium-sized companies (employees and employers), as well as big companies, corporations and HR managers. The consortium of the project consists of 4 organizations from Poland, Slovakia and Hungary: Nowoczesna Firma S.A., Fundacja Obserwatorium Zarządzania, HIC Slovakia and TREBAG.
