OUTCOME & IMPACT
Substantional Cost Savings & Global Expansion Opportunities
Since the launch, the response from users has been overwhelmingly positive, with particular praise for the ease with which the platform was rolled out, and the support received.
The move from paper based learning to a completely online system has perhaps had the most obvious impact, freeing students to submit work as and when it is complete.
The new system allows assessors the freedom to grade and supply feedback from their preferred device.
Overall though, what Chrysalis Courses describe as the most significant outcome is the substantial saving in both direct and indirect costs.
Increasing amounts of staff time are freed up and there’s a notable reduction in printing and distribution of physical media.
Looking to the future, the team at Chrysalis are enthusiastic about a second phase of the project, which is planned to combine integration of the company’s CRM system with the Moodle platform as well as the creation of a mobile app to further engage learners and allow just-in-time learning.
With courses now available entirely online, the company is also looking at expanding their learner base to other countries, something which had not been possible previously.
“We have known what has been going on from the start and the support continues to be first class. What has really impressed is the launch. Edd has been amazing with our team and implementing the more specific requirements of our business.”
“We see the project taking our business onto the next level, both in the way we deliver training and how we can interact with students i.e. by the use of video. This also means we have the opportunity to take the training abroad as all the info sits on the VLE.”
“There is so much to Moodle and using a partner is essential, especially if you are new to it. I would recommend Titus instantly as they are a pleasure to deal with and they get the job done!”
“The impact has been significant – particularly in terms of cost and time savings as we have moved away from paper based learning. Overall we have had a positive response.”
“The next step would be development of a mobile app and integration with our CRM system.”
