Vado’s learning courses are designed to help organisations take action to develop competencies and increase engagement among their workforce, as well as help new employees to learn about their new employer quickly and build contacts and friendships with their new colleagues.
David Patterson, a director of Learning Light, which owns the E-Learning Centre and provides advice and help to organisations using e-learning and learning technologies to improve their business performance, explained: “It’s now well accepted and research shows - that 70% of development happens on the job; 20% happens through coaching and mentoring, and the last ten per cent comes through formal learning, including e-learning and instructor-led workshops.
“Vado’s courses are the only off-the-shelf courseware that helps learners to make the transition from the formal learning environment to applying that learning on the job,” he continued.
“Vado offers over 300 employee and management development/soft skill courses. Each course contains a one to two minute long instructional video, designed to maximise learner retention.
“All Vado courses come with a step-by-step Implementation Guide to help the learner practise the learning and develop on the job. Learners also have access to a downloadable job aid template, checklist, or similar tool to help them implement the learning.”
“Basically, Vado not only espouses the 70-20-10 model but its e-learning courses embody the model’s principles, using the ‘ten per cent’ to deliver the 70 and, thus, make the learners and the organisations they work for more productive and profitable,” Patterson added.
“We are pleased to partner with Learning Light to provide our unique learning content that’s ‘changing the face of learning,” commented Cindy Pascale, Vado’s CEO. “We offer learning content in six areas: Competency Development, Project Management, Business Writing Skills, Engagement and Retention, Career Development and Onboarding or Induction.”
Vado’s e-learning courses have joined other high quality, competitively priced online learning content from, among others, the Virtual College, eJ4, eltalking, Learning Light and the language specialists, Altissia on the E-Learning Centre website - an information resource about e-learning and learning technologies.
