GBS Corporate Training to showcase innovative VideoCast eLearning at Learning Technologies 2007

  • Will demonstrate how to create complete video-based modules in just 30 minutes
  • New technology solution supports blended and distance learning
  • Stand 1, Learning Technologies 2007, 31st January - 1st February, Olympia 2, London
London, UK, 29 January, 2007 - GBS Corporate Training, one of the UK's leading training organisations, will showcase its innovative new approach to eLearning at this year's Learning Technologies show in London. New GBS VideoCast eLearning technology - to be demonstrated at the show - enables both public and private sector companies to create eLearning modules, including video content, in just 30 minutes. Integration into GBS eLearning modules allows organisations to create follow up quizzes and tests to ensure that the new information is fully recognised by the organisation.

The VideoCast technology enables companies to achieve a rapid turnaround time on video-based communications and training. Experienced GBS professionals will be present to show how these new innovations can help organisations enhance their learning and development programmes, on subjects including compliance and diversity. GBS has experience working with a range of contact centres - including those of Vodafone, Legal and General and First Data - where there is often a need for standards, products and offers to be fully updated within a day.

"This year's Learning Technologies event will provide us with a great opportunity to demonstrate how quick and easy it is to create eLearning content using the GBS solution," commented Phil Dodds, GBS Sales and Marketing Director. "We will offer live demonstrations of our technology on our stand - visitors can request different topics, and we will create a sample eLearning package for them, including areas such as compliance, health and safety and diversity. We create a short video recording, and then create a training module from it in just 30 minutes.

"The training content we create is perfectly suited to distance learning, as well as our Blended Learning courses," he continued. "This will be of particular interest to public sector organisations, where government legislation has recently increased the need for training of the workforce. The blended approach ensures that all employees receive a comprehensive education on diversity issues at hand, and enables organisations to offer a training method that suits each employee's individual learning requirements."

Learning Technologies is Europe's leading learning and skills event covering every aspect of organisational learning and performance improvement technology. With an unparalleled list of sponsors, over 120 exhibitors and more than 3,000 visitors it is the single most important event for the learning and development professional.
