Open Mind, the specialist learning resources distributor has put its many years of sales, management and training experience to good use by producing five custom-built e-learning programmes in response to a customer’s needs. The programmes, developed for a particular customer within the private sector, deal with company-specific issues that have a high bearing on that organisation’s competitive advantage in its marketplace.
Alun Harvey, Open Mind’s managing director, commented: “While Open Mind is primarily a resources supplier, serving the ‘traditional’ training and development community, we were delighted to be asked to use our knowledge of training techniques, including instructional design, to develop some highly sensitive and also highly valuable e-learning programmes.
“This e-learning production capability complements our other expertise, which includes offering practical help with establishing – or re-launching - managing and marketing a Learning Resource Centre (LRC) and supplying the STAR intranet-based Learning Centre Management System to manage LRCs.”
Open Mind, the UK’s largest distributor of corporate learning resources with over 10,000 learning resources in all forms of delivery media – from the ‘hi-tech’ online, DVD and CD-ROM delivered programmes, through the ‘traditional’ video programmes to books and audio tapes – regularly deals with over 600 corporate and public sector customers throughout the UK.
