VenU eLearning Solutions elects to join the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework

compliant

Due to its global client-base, VenU eLearning Solutions has elected to join the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. The program represents a joint effort on behalf of the U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission to provide both U.S. and European-based companies with an opportunity to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States or vice versa. A relatively new initiative, the European Commission confirmed on July 12 that the Privacy Shield Framework was adequate to enable data transfers under EU law.

“Ensuring the security of our clients’ information has been one of our primary focuses for 13 years,” said VenU CEO Tom Doty. “Given the volume of international business we conduct on a daily basis, we immediately recognized the value of this certification.”

The Privacy Shield program is administered by the International Trade Administration (ITA) within the U.S. Department of Commerce. To join the Privacy Shield Framework, a U.S.-based organization must self-certify to the Department of Commerce and publicly commit to comply with the Framework’s requirements.

Joining the Privacy Shield Framework is voluntary, however, once an eligible organization makes the public commitment to comply with the Framework’s requirements, the commitment will become enforceable under U.S. law. VenU adds this certification to a list of internal security compliance measures that also includes ISO/IEC 9001 and 27001 certifications from American Global Standards.

Massive Open Online Courses

mooc

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) were first introduced to the eLearning industry in 2008, and became quite popular in 2012. At its core the MOOC was designed to allow open, interactive participation to course materials on the web. Forums provided an opportunity for learners and instructors alike to discuss topics addressed in the online course – allowing peer-to-peer and peer-to-instructor dialogue within what was, at the time, less interactive eLearning.

We’ve seen a resurgence of interest in the concept of collaborative learning amongst our clients at VenU eLearning Solutions recently.

Below are some of the benefits we’ve discovered from the implementation of the collaborative spirit of MOOC’s into an LMS platform:

  • They encourage knowledge sharing among peers. Required forum participation requires the sharing of original thought amongst peers and encourages healthy discussion from topics ranging from brand reinforcement to compliance.
  • Knowledge is retained at a greater capacity when learners draw from their own experience or thoughts.
  • Flexible format allows for more convenient consumption of training – smaller portions of training are delivered to users in a concise manner, followed by a thought-provoking call to action through forum participation.
  • The forum allows leadership to identify motivated employees and gather insight based on the thoughts and knowledge shared during the training, while peer-to-peer knowledge sharing encourages teamwork.
  • MOOC’s are often cost effective. VenU clients have been able to repurpose existing training into this format using built-in content creation tools that exist within the platform.

VenU clients who would like to explore collaborative learning should contact their dedicated project manager. Not a VenU client, but want to learn more? Contact us today at 800.596.8544.

Developing an Effective eLearning Strategy

developing-effective-elearning-strategy

Whether your goal is increasing your channel’s product knowledge or ensuring better compliance of your suppliers to regulations and policies, developing an effective eLearning campaign is a critical component of administrating a successful learning management system. With decades of vast experience in providing and managing effective elearning solutions, VenU’s Business Development and Project Management team share some of their insight below:

  • Invest in effective training. While arguably the most expensive component of the process, developing elearning courseware and updating dated training materials will most certainly affect the success of your initiative. Content development is a time-consuming process, so it’s important to remember that many content providers will redevelop legacy content at a fraction of the cost. VenU has partnered with PurpleFrame – an award winning custom content creation company that believes in creating engaging content for its customers, from elearning modules to virtual reality experiences – to complete a number of these types of projects for our clients.
  • Promote your training internally. The success of any type of campaign is contingent upon an effective marketing strategy. Take a multi-pronged approach, and promote your initiative through the different communication channels available to you. Remember that mass communication should always target a specific audience and should always lead to action. VenU clients often rely on the integrated mass mailer tool and other communication tools within the LMS to create stylized emails, newsletters, announcements, homepage animations, and HTML formatted site notifications to build excitement for a particular initiative.
  • Make training accessible. In the ever-evolving marketplace, the workforce stays on the go. Therefore, it is more important than ever before that training is accessible anytime, anywhere, on any device – particularly smart mobile devices. Choosing a responsively-designed LMS that offers a robust, yet seamless user experience on mobile devices is paramount. The user interface should be engaging, yet efficient, and easily navigable – content and communications have to flow easily to users regardless of the device used.
  • Incentivize learners. Gamification has been a rising eLearning trend for the last few years. Studies continue to support the evidence that the addition of an incentive into the learning process increases knowledge retention and improves application. If gamification does not fit into your learning culture, consider an alternative incentive for consumption of training – be it through internal acknowledgement, or the implementation of rewards or certification program.
  • Measure results and adjust. No elearning initiative can be successful if it doesn’t provide measureable results. It is important to focus on not just a learner’s outcome, but their activity while consuming training. From the time spent on a particular piece of training to a snapshot of an individual’s learning plan visible, VenU’s robust reporting capability provides stakeholders with the ability to create ad-hoc detailed custom reports along with a full dashboard of standardized reports. This visibility provides you with information that you need to create effective learning plans for individual learners, and to track the success of an entire eLearning campaign.

The VenU Approach to BIG Data

big-data

Whether you’re focused on compliance, professional development, sales or operations – “Big Data” is the current buzzword taking the eLearning industry by storm. Big Data goes beyond basic pass/fail reporting and provides eLearning professionals with insight into the learner’s behavior while consuming a particular module or training. 

At VenU, we’ve always understood that the success of your learning initiative is contingent upon your ability to drive that success with information collected throughout the platform. Below are a list of ways we continue to make big data work for our clients in the latest release of our enhanced report system:

  • Have training deadlines been thoroughly communicated? Did the email you sent promoting new training material result in content consumed? Our new report home page features side widgets that provide quick, at-a-glance stats regarding current usage trends.
  • For efficient analysis of data – we’ve added a search filter for reports, allowing you to find the information you need quickly, in real-time. Reports can now be customized to provide only the most relevant data – equipping you with the information you need to make confident decisions regarding management and strategy.
  • The heart of Big Data focuses on not just a learner’s outcome, but their activity while consuming training. From the time spent on a particular piece of training to a snapshot of an individual’s learning plan visible in our Course Detail Report, our new report class provides the information that you need to create effective learning plans for the individual – while our Curriculum Report also allows you to track the success of entire learning campaigns with unparalleled detail.
  • Our comprehensive analytics provide insight into the most popular days of the month, the week, day of the week, and hour of the day for site activity – allowing our clients to identify learning trends over time. Information collected from learners such as the most popular browser and operating system give further insight into learner preferences, while popular key words and key phrases help identify online behavior and popular search terms for your platform.

For more information on the latest and greatest – current VenU clients should contact their dedicated Project Manager. Not a VenU client, but want to learn more? Contact us today at 800.596.8544.

VenU brings Innovation to Gamification

VenU eLearning Solutions, a pioneer in the field of innovative eLearning solutions, released today a dynamic collection of gamification features as part of VenU 5™ – the company’s latest version of its Learning Management System (LMS).

Recent studies have shown that the addition of an incentive into the learning process increases knowledge retention, thus improving application. This update underpins the company’s commitment to deliver an enterprise-class learning solution that continues to evolve with the cutting edge of technology.

“It was important for us to offer to our clients a gamification feature to make the training experience more interactive and engaging for learners,” explained VenU CEO Tom Doty. “But, we also wanted to deliver a robust capability geared toward increasing both productivity and proficiency.”

With that goal in mind, VenU’s product development team seamlessly integrated gamification into VenU 5™’s already robust suite of learning management tools.

It all begins at the heart of the platform – where training and related activities meet the Rewards System. VenU 5™ offers over 20 different criteria with which administrators can create achievements along with custom badges for practically any feature in the LMS. Achievements may be configured to apply to one or more groups, regions or businesses, or the entire site. Additionally, both Achievements and Reward Points may be set to only be earned for a specified timeframe – and Achievements can be set to expire. For example, if you want to offer certain badges or reward points only between May 1st and July 31st to encourage learners to meet a course deadline, VenU 5™ can do that and more! Achievements can be configured so they can expire after a set amount of time – perfect for recertification requirements.

For the user, however, training takes on a whole new meaning! Leaderboards allow learners to see exactly how they rank compared to their group, region, or even the entire site.‏ The user’s profile displays all of the their unlocked achievements, along with a list of the achievements they have yet to earn.‏ Points earned are prominently displayed on the user’s homepage and a dashboard displays their point earnings history.

Announcing “eLearning in Your Inbox” for the VenU 5™ Learning Management System

VenU’s product development team is pleased to announce the addition of “eLearning in Your Inbox” to the VenU 5 LMS.  When our clients’ needs evolve, so do we.  With that in mind, VenU was asked by a major client to make it as simple as possible for users to access their assigned courses – we listened and innovated.

“eLearning in Your Inbox” is a comprehensive new feature that consolidates processes and streamlines communication for both the administrator and the end user – with just a single click of the mouse, a user will be logged into the LMS and taken directly to the required training.

Administrators can now create a multimedia email with a dynamically generated hyperlink, specific to each user and their assigned training. Client case studies indicate this one-click access dramatically reduces the time between course enrollment and course consumption. Additionally, administrators are able to limit the number of clicks and time the hyperlink is available to users. Complete statistical tracking, such as the number of opens and click-throughs, is centralized in an online report.

To learn more about this new feature, VenU clients can contact their dedicated project manager for more information. Not a VenU client? Contact us today to learn more about this and other services by emailing info@ven-u.com.

8 Deadly Sins

VenU’s Business Development Department stumbled across an alarming statistic this week. According to a recent Gallup poll, only 13% of employees world-wide are “actively engaged” at work – meaning 87% of employees are either “not engaged” or, worse, “actively disengaged”.

According to the study, the term “not engaged,” identifies employees who lack motivation and are less likely to invest discretionary effort in organizational goals or outcomes. “Actively disengaged,” indicates those who are unhappy and unproductive at work and liable to spread negativity to coworkers.

Unengaged employees at any level are toxic to an organization’s overall health, however, nowhere are they more dangerous than in the realm of customer/client services.

Here at VenU we’ve implemented protocol that prevents this pandemic at every turn. Some might refer to it as an “across-the-board” policy. We simply call it:

8 Deadly Sins.

  • Give lousy customer service – Busy signals, long wait times, direct to voicemail, and ringing with no answer are unacceptable.
  • Make internal procedures easy on us – If it means negatively affecting or inconveniencing the customer: it doesn’t happen.
  • Customers can’t get immediate “live help” – from project managers or support.
  • Poor communication and coordination across departments – Teamwork is mandatory.
  • Ignore the competition.
  • Miss deadlines – At VenU, this means both internal and external deadlines.
  • Make recruiting, hiring, and training a low priority – We’re always actively looking for new talent, but we’re only interested in the best.
  • Rely on dissatisfied customers to be your service monitors.

These 8 Deadly Sins underpin our commitment to exceptional customer service while ensuring that our team remains engaged… and they’ve worked for us for over a decade.

Simple? Yes. Our philosophy is simple. But it’s one that continues to distinguish us from our competitors, because at VenU – excellence is not optional.

VenU Launches New Website to Promote New Responsive LMS Design

linkedin-new websiteMobile access is beginning to dominate the Internet! It has never been more important to understand the need for responsive design when it comes to your elearning initiative. Over the past few years, as mobile usage has continued to increase, a typical solution has been to have separate sites with the same content – one for desktop viewing and one for mobile devices. However, through technological advances it has now become reality for a single site to accommodate all types of users and provide an optimal viewing experience regardless of what type of device they are using.

Today VenU™ released its new corporate website to announce the latest version of its LMS – VenU 5™. Sporting a new “mobile first” responsive design, advanced theming and branding tools, powerful web services, advanced reporting capabilities, social networking and gamification tools – VenU 5 incorporates the latest technologies in eLearning. With user experience a top priority, we understand that elearning initiatives are meant to engage and interact with users in a way that eliminates the hassles of typical compatibility issues while providing an innovative and enjoyable experience.

Check out our new website for an in-depth look at what elearning should and can be!

The “User Experience”

ux2

“Full-featured” and “user-friendly” are not mutually exclusive… and “exceptional customer service” is not optional.

“User Experience” is much more than just a catch phrase- especially when it comes to eLearning. Today’s users expect more. In fact, they demand an easy-to-use, highly visual, and extremely intuitive learning environment coupled with concise, meaningful, and compelling content – delivered anytime, anywhere, on any device.

But, the user experience doesn’t just stop there… users expect exceptional customer service to be part of the overall experience, and to have their support needs responded to in a highly competent, professional, and timely manner.

We provide our clients with an eLearning platform that, albeit powerful, is not confusing and riddled with programmer interfaces. Our Learning Management System is intuitive and easy-to-use from front to back.

A few of our LMS’s major capabilities include:

  • The obvious… eLearning courseware and content management functionality
  • Classroom management tools and logistics support
  • Calendaring tools and live event management
  • Certification and curricula management tools
  • Full-blown ecommerce capabilities, with vouchers, refunds, discount codes, promo codes and management tools
  • Built-in social media and communication tools
  • Web Services/API for integration with third-party applications and systems
  • Comprehensive online reporting and dashboards
  • Custom branding and co-branding
  • And, about a thousand other capabilities…

Our clients also expect us to possess a thorough knowledge of their business objectives and to be able to propose and provide solutions to address their eLearning initiatives and business requirements. We underpin all of this with ironclad security (ISO 27001 Certified), a commitment to quality, unlimited scalability, unwavering reliability, and access to the latest technology, all at a reasonable price…and we do it every day for over 1 million users worldwide.

Want to see how? Contact us today!
