Skillslive Learn was established with a view to becoming a world-leading Learning Management System LMS preferred by organisations with the need to disseminate knowledge-based learning to large numbers of stakeholders. Given the myriad advantages of utilising technology to reach a broad and diverse audience then the ability to create positive social change is something we that are passionate about, as we work towards influencing digital transformation. In addition to this, the company maintains Social Impact as a key Corporate Social Responsibility objective.
Skillslive Learning Management Systems LMS deployments include some within the NGO space, specifically for Child Protection, as well as a variety of social impact projects such as workplace mental health, family violence, prevention of violence and aggression against women and medical personnel or support staff that provide a community service.
Where social problems exist, reporting is often a fundamental problem in that those who bear witness to indiscretion are often afraid to speak up or take corrective action. A key aim in Skillslive development is the empowerment of the individual so as to allay this fear and encourage reporting where it is appropriate and necessary for the wellbeing of self or others.
As a company, Skillslive is delighted to participate in opportunities involving learning technology initiatives where Learning Management Systems LMS release the potential of e-learning and m-learning capabilities. Objectives include teaching people to be socially responsible global citizens and generate long-lasting change within a community or engage with their circles of influence. We are passionate about this aim and have the resources to deploy learning platforms from the most basic to one which leverages a range of the very latest technologies to empower the organisation with data, analytics, cognitive computing, AI, machine learning and tracking of the complete learning journey.
Amongst a range of social impact issues considered for our learning applications, Skillslive Learning Management Systems LMS and our range of services across digital learning solutions have given us a particular focus and have eventuated in either internal projects or partnerships, such as Non-Government Organisations, NGO’s.
Skillslive is delighted to be making a contribution in the development of a learning platform that can be trusted in the protection of children. For any organisation that deals with children, their protection must be the utmost priority. Within this indispensable objective, adherence to policy, procedure and record-keeping is vital. These are the providers of consistency, predictability, oversight and management for the organisation
Yet, we must envision the scenario where this is not an enabler but a hindrance. Considering, for example, the deployment of staff and volunteers to a disaster-affected area, in combination with a dated, paper-based and labour-intensive system that could quite literally hold up or completely obviate the contribution of staff and volunteers, it’s not so difficult to imagine the potential for such a scenario.
Skillslive will endeavour to share our knowledge, technical expertise in the delivery of learning technologies and experience in business analysis across the development of workflows, Learning Management Systems LMS combined with our expertise in the delivery of digital learning solutions. Our aim is to free up time for staff and volunteers with rapid, worry-free on-boarding and empower administrative staff with improved record-keeping as well as big data and analytics.
The Skillslive collaborative project in Child Safeguarding and Protection is undergoing trials with Plan International ANO with the aim of rapid deployment in the interest of its partner organisations’ objectives to realise the benefits of digital on-boarding of staff and volunteers from the earliest possible date.
Another important ongoing project for Skillslive and our Learning Management System LMS is the prevention of aggression against medical professionals. The primary aim of this project is to arm healthcare workers with soft skills and practical techniques to identify potential threats, control and de-escalate situations. A learner, faced with such situations in real life, will have a guide and a knowledge base to advise them on how to best proceed. To achieve this, learning and assessment scenarios will be developed in strict collaboration with highly knowledgeable and experienced training providers and healthcare staff will be deployed within the Skillslive learning platform.
Gender-based power differences underpin the shocking - and sometimes tragic - scourge of domestic violence in our society. In spite of much social progress on a plethora of different issues over recent decades, gender-based violence remains a major problem demonstrated by staggering statistics.
Another Skillslive collaboration that involves the deployment of our Learning Management System LMS capable of e-Learning and m-learning to frontline staff in the hairdressing industry - very often the first people outside the home to notice any sign of domestic violence on a client. These course materials have the specific aim of providing hairdressers with a set of skills to deal with, discuss and, where appropriate, recommend a specialist practitioner or report domestic violence in confidence.
The benefit of the latest technology applied to Learning Management Systems LMS are both numerous and well documented. In terms of the application of technology to alleviate, mitigate or resolve social issues, similarly, the benefits are obvious. These include:
The instantaneous deployment of content to a worldwide audience without the limitation on scale and location that comes inherent with face-to-face training
Incident reporting - Empowering users and encouraging reporting, for example utilising anonymity and de-identified data where appropriate
Real-time access to incident reports, plus data, analytics and feedback - Available to those who need it
Big data - Aggregated data and metadata to help inform policy, strategic and budgetary decisions
Machine learning to identify process bottlenecks, roadblocks and in-field problems
Identifying opportunities for continuous improvement
Quick reference guides associated with specific topics of crisis management available to in-field users
Running the application on a Mobile platform (iPads, Smartphones) providing easy access to the reference guides and other on-demand material
While some people may be intimidated by the scope of organisation-wide change management, Skillslive has both expertise and experience to assist organisations through this type of transition and will assist in the complete process - from our range of comprehensive services across digital learning solutions to the deployment and implementation of a Learning Management System LMS that exceeds expectations.
