Paul James, Chief Operating Officer at IMarEST said, “We had an existing tool for our members to record their continuing professional development (CPD), but the Institute lacked a learning management system (LMS) to support member learning. This led us to explore the possibility of having a single platform that could provide members with not only an easy to use CPD recording function, but also access to target learning resources.”
With a focus on collaboration and strong custom-development capabilities, Agylia was chosen as the partner for IMarEST. Working together, Agylia and IMarEST developed a way for IMarEST members to upload academic qualifications, certificates and materials to support their CPD using the Agylia LMS.
The Agylia LMS has also provided IMarEST with a powerful learning delivery infrastructure, which enables IMarEST to upload and target a wide range of learning content, including eLearning courses, videos, events, PDFs and Word documents, to support their distributed and growing global membership - which now spans more than 120 countries.
IMarEST members are able to access their learning content, and maintain their CPD record via Agylia’s online learner portal and mobile learning Apps - branded as IMarEST Echo. The Apps - available for iOS and Android devices - work online and offline, ensuring IMarEST members can still access their content and maintain their CPD record wherever they are - even when at sea.
Paul concluded, “IMarEST Echo is helping us to achieve one of our strategic goals, which is to promote professionalism and technical leadership by growing a knowledgeable, skilled and more qualified membership that can adapt to current and future challenges in the marine sector.”
