Brighton, Sussex, United Kingdom, 2009/09/28 - Kineo and Nikon have today published a detailed case study on how they jointly developed an engaging suite of e-Learning modules on Nikon's leading range of cameras, and delivered these via an online dealer learning platform.
Nikon, the leading camera manufacturer, have long provided training to a large audience of resellers, traditionally delivered via classroom based training sessions, store visits and product guides. Nikon decided to investigate an alternative approach to reach a potential target audience of up to 100,000 store staff.
E-learning offered several potential benefits over Nikon's traditional training:
- The ability to reach a wide audience instantaneously;
- Cost savings over classroom based training;
- Measurable results on take up and performance;
- The potential to create a community of Nikon learners.
Kineo (kineo.com) developed a high quality e-learning design that supported Nikon's brand values by working in partnership with the Nikon team and using rapid prototyping approaches. The dealer learning portal was based on a custom Moodle LMS platform also developed and hosted by Kineo. The Nikon iQ portal and e-leaning has been well received by Nikon Europe and dealers. A lot of interest has built up and the next stage is developing multi language versions of both the portal and content.
"Kineo has developed a platform that delivers on every aspect of our initial brief, furthermore their fresh approach to some of our initial ideas means we now have a training package that offers more than anything else within the photo industry."
Kineo partner Steve Rayson said: "We're delighted to partner with Nikon. We believe that our visual design approach to product knowledge, combined with Moodle for learning portals, is a powerful combination for product knowledge, and we're delighted to see such positive results from users."
You can sample the e-learning for yourself and download the 15 page case study from Kineo's website.
