Learning and onboarding  

Many companies and organisations have wide-ranging employee training requirements and many undergo great change with which employees need to familiarise themselves. It is also often important to ensure that effective onboarding programmes are in place and appropriate induction programmes have been set up for new employees.

We also provide pure e-learning courses on various platforms as well as customised digital solutions for internal training and on-boarding. Through our partnership with learning architect Øystein Ramseng, we take responsibility for the teaching, communicative design and technical aspects of the solutions.

Projects

The National Association for Heart and Lung Disease (LHL)

Norway has one of the world’s best emergency medical services outside the hospital environment. Nonetheless, Norway needs to get better. This is why the Norwegian Ministry of Health and Care Services has taken the initiative for the national Together We Save Lives campaign. First aid training in schools is one of the areas addressed by the campaign. The Norwegian Directorate of Health has tasked the National Association for Heart and Lung Disease (LHL) with producing a first aid training programme for schools.

At Design Container, we prepared the educational material as well as a digital skills platform. As part of the solution, we developed an illustrative style and a gallery of characters that the pupils meet during their various training sessions. The sessions comprise animations, films, images and text instructions.

The training material and portal were piloted in selected Norwegian municipalities in 2018 and were assessed by SINTEF, the largest research organisation in Scandinavia. On the basis of experience and feedback, we made a few revisions and the portal has now moved to Phase 2 of its pilot testing stage before being rolled out across Norway in 2019. The training programme is made available to schools for free.

We are proud of being able to contribute to ensuring that more people learn first aid at an early age – to save as many lives as possible!

NSF

The Norwegian Nurses Organisation wanted to modernise the training it offers its representatives. The Norwegian Nurses Organisation has representatives across Norway in eight different tariff areas. The brief was to design e-learning modules for use as a supplement to conventional classroom learning.

The representatives need to familiarise themselves with and learn about large volumes of information and legislative material. The Norwegian Nurses Organisation wanted its representatives to be able to respond to questions from members and provide constructive advice on subjects such as wages, employment, working hours and inclusive working life on completion of their training. Many factors indicated that a conventional e-learning course would not be the most suitable option and it seemed that there was a need for greater digital restructuring.

Instead of a conventional e-learning course, we developed a portal where information is easily accessible and organised in an interactive and educational way. We focused on designing digital tools dedicated to the areas that representatives operate in such as law and contracts. The solution communicates with the Norwegian Nurses Organisation’s membership network to ensure that information retrieved is applicable to the tariff area in which they are working. We also made the solution available offline.

In partnership with the Norwegian Nurses Organisation, we developed training for its representatives by taking a new approach centred on e-learning and digital tools. All representatives were also given an iPad. The project was rolled out at the beginning of 2013 and results have been excellent. Contact us to find out more about this project.

DIFI – Norwegian Ministry of Government Administration (Agency for Public Management and eGovernment)

Since 2013, we have completed several projects involving the development of onboarding programmes and digital learning tools for DIFI.

One of the projects was an onboarding programme for all government employees which we called Good Start. This is a training option offered to all new employees in public sector departments and enterprises to help them familiarise themselves with the work and special requirements of the public sector.

One of the learning tools we have designed is a quiz entitled The Big State Quiz. DIFI wanted to raise knowledge levels about administrative procedures in government departments. Our solution was a quiz in which departments are able to complete both against each other and the ‘grass roots’ instead of a more conventional e-learning course.

We have also supplied several animations and films for conferences and learning environments.

The above comply with SCORM standards for web-based electronic educational technology. We use Moodle as our learning management system (LMS).

Avinor – New training program for all handlers at Oslo Airport

The courses for the new apron have been completed and delivered and have contributed to ensuring that disruption was avoided during the busy summer months. Thanks to close collaboration with engineers and product managers at Avinor, we produced a course that appeals to everyone and ensures efficient and intuitive learning.

The courses focus on user-friendliness and responsivity was an important factor as not all the members of the course target group are used to working on personal computers. Animations are used in the course material and technical architectural drawings have been simplified to allow the user to learn simply and efficiently.

Dembra

Against exclusion and hatred in schools

Dembra is a skills development initiative for schools for the prevention of anti-Semitism, racism and undemocratic attitudes designed by the Center for Studies of the Holocaust and Religious Minorities.

The project was initially about designing a film or other marketing materials to promote Dembra. On the basis of a thorough requirement analysis involving on the school’s and Dembra’s annual events calendar, we identified a strong need and potential for a full-scale digital tool (dembra.no).

Dembra.no is now an Internet portal offering learning resources, teaching aids, background materials and tips for further immersive study. dembra.no takes as its starting point the experiences of schools and provides specific methodological tools for teachers and heads to use in day-to-day school life. The tools make it easier to work to combat exclusion and hatred in schools and simplifies both the processes and lines of communication within schools and with Dembra guides.

The project is managed by the Center for Studies of the Holocaust and Religious Minorities, the European Wergeland Centre and the Department of Teacher Education and School Research at the University of Oslo.

NIF

The Trainer Role is one of the most popular NIF courses and a course that anyone working with children and sports needs to complete. In 2017, we redesigned both the content and the solution with the aim of getting more applicants to complete the course successfully as well as providing an enhanced learning experience. The course has just been tested and assessed in selected sports associations before it is finally rolled out to all associations later this year.
