Recently, World HRD Congress, which is an organization that awards companies for innovative and outstanding contributions to e-learning technology and training in India, awarded G-Cube, a 15-year veteran to learning solutions, two awards. G-Cube won best use of mobile learning technology and best use of video in a training program.
How did G-Cube manage to win both awards, as reported on the eLearning Industry blog? First, they created a training program that enabled their client, Aditya Birla Finance Limited, to shift from traditional classroom training and into a modern, audio-visual method that included animation. This training enabled employees of the firm to better engage with learning content in smaller self-paced modules.
Winning for mobile learning was accomplished by G-Cube as they developed a custom learning program for fitness chain FitnessFirst, which combined 8 modules in a mobile-friendly platform. What made it unique was that it was developed on a HTML5 language to prevent accessibility problems, because users would be connecting via any number of different types of mobile devices and internet connections.
There are some critical takeaways from the approaches that G-Cube uses when developing new digital learning technology. First, the solutions must be based on end users, and making the experience better for them. Secondly, there is a big push to reduce instructor led training and transfer it to e-learning content, but this must be done in such a way that learners do not lose out in the process. Understanding how learners use content and how they take it in are vital to making any type of training a success, whether it’s for corporate or commercial purposes.
G-Cube has won multiple awards over the years, including Brandon Hall Awards for Excellence in Learning and Technology, The Deloitte Tech Fast 50 India Award for 5 consecutive years, and the NASSCOM Emerge 50 Award, among others.
