Royal Navy choose Luminosity from CM Group to spearhead their move to blended learning programmes

The Royal Naval Defence College of Aeronautical Engineering at HMS Sultan in Portsmouth, UK, has selected Luminosity as its new collaborative elearning course creation platform.

Luminosity enables subject matter experts and trainers to create and update their own elearning courses themselves, quickly and easily. Course authors can be based anywhere and can work individually or in collaborative teams to create elearning. Courses can then be instantly deployed out to a choice of any SCORM compliant Learning Management System (including CM’s optional SharePoint integrated Luminosity LMS), websites, intranet portals or even mobile devices.

The College has previously focused on instructor led training, but is using Luminosity to enable it to move to a curriculum which blends the best of elearning and instructor led training to increase the effectiveness of the overall training approach. The elearning courses produced will be deployed to the Defence Learning Portal for use by UK service personnel worldwide.

Lt Cdr Adrian Coulthard, Specialist Training Group Officer, said: “A prime driver in our selection process for e-learning software has been that it is easy for non–IT specialists to use. Our trainers can very quickly master the tool and then focus on creating high quality courses which augment and extend our existing training programmes.”

Lt Toby Barnard, Avionics Section Officer, added: “Collaborative features provide a powerful infrastructure enabling co-operation and review. The course creation, publishing and update processes are necessarily fast so that they suddenly enable a dramatic increase in elearning output. It’s also important that we have access to people who have years of experience in actually designing and creating elearning“.
